Thanks!
I don't do any of that kind of work, so I have no idea.

I know that Lazeerer Laser Pointer Forums - Discuss Lasers & Laser Pointers - View Profile: lazeerer does, but I think he works with mechanical means (brushes polishes etc.)

Out of cuirosity what method of shipping have you been using (first class, priority, flat rate, etc)? I ordered on Wed and it will probably get here on Thurs-ish. Typically that would be very slow for priority or faster than normal for first class.

Yours is coming Parcel Post. The total weight was almost 10 pounds and it was too tall to fit into a large flat rate box

I am only offering this for this ONE projector. I am NOT going back into the diode business.

I wonder what diodes the 1700/1750 series with 4000 Lumens(!) projector has?

Also, if I may ask, how many 445's does the 1600 have in it?

From what I've seen, the 1600 has 40 holes for diodes, but the poster of those pictures mentioned 42 diodes . It's been speculated that they are the same diodes, there's just simply more of them. Which makes it easier/more convenient for sellers of the diodes themselves, less projector waste lying around. However, a bit of a buzz kill for us folks desiring more power.

Wish me luck!
The 1600 has 32 diodes in it. The heat sink assembly has eight more empty spots AND the ribbon cable is already in place for those 8 diodes. It may simply be that the 4000 lumen projectors will "fill" the heat sink with 40 diodes.

I have neither the tooling nor the skill to polish this stuff out like Lazeerer does. All I can offer is a wish for luck. Luckily, the Kryton is NOT a complex or intricate host.

Lazeerer just finished polishing up an Arctic! Now THAT has some nooks and crannies on it

Peace,
dave

"I have two @ 40-50mW 405nm pointers.These are in Newwish type hosts. They are powered by 2 @ AAA batteries. They are $15 each"

I have some newb questions about these..


Did you make these? (guessing you put new internals in these x2 AAA hosts?)

Is the beam visible at night? (or is that only green lasers?)

and last:

these are ready to go? just add batteries?



very interested... I'd like to call "dibs" on one, if they are ready to be used, and would be ok for a total newb to lasers.
thanks

On the little (inexpensive) pointers, I sent them first class in a padded envelope. Priority mail would have added $5 to the cost of shipping them

These are Chinese manufactured.

The 405nm light is VERY difficult to see. 405nm is right at the edge of our eye's ability to "see" at all. I would NOT say that the beam will be visible at night, unless there is smoke or fog in the air

They are ready to go. If you are domestic, I will include the first set of batteries free. Sending batteries to some international destinations is problematic

Send me a PM for payment information

Peace,
dave

Take some fine sandpaper and thoroughly sand the host evenly. Then you need some etching primer. Prime it, then paint with whatever color you like. Light, even coats till you get the desired depth.

Thanks, I have been looking at some rather interesting automotive paints. That could make for a very nice looking host.
