Thanks for making a wiki page, I will handle this order. If anyone wants to search around for competing laser modules I'm sure we'd love to have more options. I found that link in about 5 minutes of searching, prices vary hugely (I saw some things that looked near identical for $40 each).
Also, I think the look of his laser modules is super cool, but it actually seems like he might have created that look:
It looks like the bigger copper pieces might actually have been added by him, along with the little rivet plates. What do you think? I'd love to do the same thing, I think the stepped look is awesome.
