I'm only just now learning about this stuff. But the boomerang

probably has a resistor in-line somewhere. You could maybe find it, remove it, determine it's ohm resistance and reinstall one of slightly less ohms. Maybe? More power to the boomerang would shine it brighter but probably burn it out quicker too.

Anybody got any info/knowledge on whether or not that would work?

Did you use the clamps after removing from oven, or did you reassemble, put clamps on then bake it with the clamps on it.
