Arrow Would it be possible.....

To buy a 50-100mw blue/violet laser diode, and then put it into a 5mw blue/violet laser skeleton? Im in the U.S, so you cant but a laser above 5mw legally.

You would no doubt need to change the Laser Driver in
the 5mW Host as well...

Wouldn't that come with the new laser diode as well? Or no?

That depends on what you buy....

This is a Laser Diode....



This is a Laser Diode Driver....



As you have already been advised....
You will need to do a little research and reading on
the Forum to bring yourself up to Laser speed...

Thanks again! As I have never had a real laser like I have been hoping for. There just to expensive. lol. So this would be a cheaper alternative for me as well.

All that work, just for 50mw of 405nm ?

You would be better off buying one of the $7 ebay "5mw" 405nm lasers. You'll probably get close to 50mw anyway.

Default Re: Would it be possible.....

I recommend building a laser from scratch (well not quite) as its very fun and rewarding.

I would start with a high power red since they can be made so cheaply.

Buy a laser host "kit"
Buy a rkcstr driver - rkcstr.com, Micro-Drive and laser diode electronics
Buy a LPC-815 sled
Buy the required batteries
Build a test load

Its really pretty simple IF you spend a lot of time researching and you can get 300mW of 658nm for as low as $50
