Hi
so my question is ,im tryign to add DC powered laser line for meter saw and led as well
is there any module i can purchase that turn 120v ac into voltage required to power up laser and LED on same circuit
i got power supply 6v i have to plug separately and then run wires etc etc .is 6V too much for it ?
is there any module i could plug into meter saw after switch and then run low voltage directly to laser and LED

whats voltage for laser ?3.6 V 5V ? and whats standard voltage for LED diode ,cant find any info

diode has plug at end of wires, laser has EL socket ,i do know i can install different plugs/sockets on wires.any USB power plug or power bank to power devices
where is good place to purchase it online or locally in chicago

I don’t think you looked very hard!.

You tell us. We have no idea what you have in front of you. It obviously works on 6V as you are using it.

I would simply take a part a 240V to 5V USB adapter.

BTW, I think you mean a mitre saw?

Lasers generally use a constant current source - the cheap penlight lasers are often powered using silver-oxide batteries using their own internal resistance as a current limiting factor.

Purely for the sake of safety (yours) I'd recommend you use a simple 'keyring' laser and mount it accordingly. The 'inconvenience' of turning it on/off when needed overcomes the difficulties and potential dangers of adapting one to be used directly on AC voltages.
