Default Greetings From Canada

Hello All,

I thought I should introduce myself.

I purchased my first laser in 1988 as a teenager. I recall it being a Siemans (I think) aluminum tube HeNe unit with an output of about .5 to 1 mw. It had a cord stemming from the back that attached to a power supply to which another cord was affixed that could be plugged into a wall outlet. Every now and again the power supply would snap audibly.

I purchased a few optical lenses and experimented with it but lost interest after I ran out of things to do with it. After all, it wasn't portable and back then these things didn't have much of a power output. They were also fairly rare, especially as a hobby item.

So, I forgot about the hobby until I picked up a few laserpointers a couple of months ago (5mw) and rediscovered them all over again. I'm quite surprised to see how portable and compact they have become. 2 watts in a tiny flashlight housing? That shocked me...and the blue beam of a 445 - beautiful!

Needless to say, I'm hooked all over again and would really like to learn to build my own units and experiment with different configurations (like gun/Trek phasers etc - a bit of a nerd that way). However, I'm not very handy, so I hope I don't blow myself up.

I've ordered a pair of safety goggles and now have a lot of reading and learning to do on this site (and others) before selecting my first build. If anyone has any suggestions on a nice project to start out on, I would greatly appreciate it.

Regards,

Zircarg

(a strange handle, I know...it was the name of a Dungeons & Dragons character I played as a kid...a game I haven't seen in 20+ years).

Welcome fellow canuck!

I'm glad you fell in love with your ex again! It's the right choice

In regards to suggestions for first builds, I think you should start with a red LPC-826 660nm build. The diodes are cheap and they have good power output, around 250-300mW.

Red diode can be found here: LPC-826 660nm laser diode 250mw [LPC826] - $10.99 : Cajunlasers Store

A good host to start with is the C6, it's easy to work with and in my opinion, is the industry standard for how a small, practical host should be designed.

C6 can be found here: DIY C6 Laser Host Assembly

Any more questions, feel free to ask!

Good luck,
Ryan

BTW,

This is a Space 1999 stun gun model I would like to attempt to insert a 445nm build into at some point. Perhaps someone else can attempt it and let me know how it worked? The top emitter where the beam is supposed to emanate from seems situated a bit too far below the barrel such that a module couldn't be fitted in properly. A challenge?

The website says its solid urethane, so that would mean its not hollow... I don't like your chances

Yeah, I realized that later on. Probably no chance of hollowing it out either. I'll have to keep looking around for a different model, if one exists at all.

I'd love to have a metal version but my chances are next to zilch on that.

Righto!

This is an old thread but I came across this link tonight and this is exactly what I've been looking for! I'm going to see if I can contact this fellow to determine if he still custom builds these metal stungun props.

Turbo boosted propmaker stungun - Space 1999 Eagle Transporter Forum

I wonder if i can fit a 9mm 445 in this? Could be my next project.
