Default Re: I'm Building a DIY-HDD XY-Scanner

maybe i'll try again, but not tonight, too tired now, and i overslept today because i played with lasers for too long yesterday... :

and also i just scrapped the diy-scanner-from-scratch idea, i think i will save some money for some galvos since i am lacking the knowledge to build some. googled for hours, found close to nothing...

but a whole laserdisc player contains much more: good mirrors wir adjustable mounts, pol-cube, lenses , this xy unit and a nice HeNe tube+driver ^^ they are dirtcheap on ebay, might get one for 10-20€
and i dont have a HeNe laser jet, i want one cant beat that price. and the disassembling isnt much to worry, im quite good at DIYing stuff

my setup till now hass cost me 20$ and thats the laser. if i wanted a plug and play scanner, where would the fun be? i like figuring stuff out. plugging parts together and press start - not so much... anyone can do that

i agree 5 times, once for every sentence

if i wanted a plug and play scanner i'd buy one , put it in my room and fire it up. but that has nothing to do with diy, and it is boring, because it will take about 1 hour of my time: 45 minutes of crawling ebay for the best deal, 5 mins unwrapping & setting up, 10 mins of thinking "wow that thing is cool, how could i tweak it to be even cooler?" after that i would probably rip it apart and destroy something in it while doing that.

and galvos for 100$ is
1. more than 20$
2. about 1/4 of the parts and costs for the scanner, b/c galvos alone won't scan anything...

so i appreciate your help, but that is not what we are up to here in this thread. this is about abusing hdds

No not entirely, but LaserBoy teaches me new stuff every time I work with it.

I like to tell people that LaserBoy talks to me in code.

I love to work with other people and get them into using it. It always inspires new ideas and improvments in LaserBoy!

James.
