Hello all, I'm a total, or almost total newbie. I want to build a small box, like 4 x 4 x 2 or so, which will hold two line laser modules, 2 toggle switches to turn them off and on, and have it run on a 9v battery. I will also need a regulator, like an LM317 adjustable, but that's where my lack of knowledge keeps me from making any purchases. I've tried searching, but it's really just going down one rabbit hole after another for me. Could anyone list the parts I might need, including one of those boards for plugging the components into? I have built a 200w LED exposure lamp for the printing industry, which was easy enough with the correct COB LED and driver, and it works, so I was hoping I could get some help as most of what I read is over my head, but with a little direction I'd be fine. Thanks in advance, and if I'm a PITA, I apologize. I'm not looking to become a techie, or even a hobbyist, I just hate paying 50 times more for a pre-made product, when I know it's really inexpensive.
