What's the length of those modules from the DX lasers? I'm thinking of dismantling a 30 or 50mW one for a project and would like the shortest module available.

I'll give that a try, How did you clean yours? Dissembly or compressed air?

My guess would be you would have to dissemble it to clean it properly.[/quote]

If you have salvaged any DVD burners... I would hope that you kept the 'trash' because there is a really good switch in each of them... just put it in there instead of the DX one

Brass module is 40mm long on the 5mw ones, I took one apart last night, I tried an Aixiz <5mw LD module in it using the front 2 parts, it is just possible to focus it but it is not as bright as it was in its original housing.

For people asking about a 3x AAA housing with space the Dorcy Metal Gear works well if you can get a hold of one.



My entire driver that I was using right there!

Both are DX 5mw modules, top one Is fitted with a 5mw red from an aixiz to see if it would work for GB red and GB blue.. Bottom one still in one piece....for now.
