Default Made my first Burner with pics

I would like to say Thanks to Deadel for the wonderfull tut on how to build a LD driver.
I had an interesting time trying to get it all to fit into the only flashlight host i could get till my DX orders arrive.
It was made to run off 3 AAA and drove a 1watt lux star.
Had to cut and file a board to fit in the housing and drill out the end cap to fit 2 CR123's in it.

Scavenged a diode from an LG gsa-h50n 18x its open can.
But I am having a hard time getting it into focus.
As I allready made A LD into a led I am keeping the power settings low for now.(LED drivers do not make good LD drivers)
I can focus it into a pin point at about 10" but it widens drastically *after that.
I now know from reading some of the posts that i should get a good Aixiz module.
The one I have is scavenged from an old <5 mw laser level.

For now it keeps me happy

Added some pics (cell phone camera sry)
















Half a floppy case took about 2 seconds



Once i get my order in I will rebuild

Thanks again to Deadel and others for all the help they post

Lorgar --

Welcome to the club. ;D I see you have learned a lot. True -- If it is focused at say two feet, it will be large at 20'. That's also the good thing about these reds -- You have control of the focus.

Mike

Well the big problem is I almost have the lens off to get it into any kind of focus.
If the cap is halfway down the dot is about 6" round at 1' away.

Lorgar --

With my Aixiz modules, I get longer distance as I screw the lens into the module.
The DX 5914 modules are nice too -- closer exterior tollerances and a focusing ring - you might want to look at these too.
