Ha, an old school soldering iron, the first soldering irons were just small iron pokers which were heated by flame, essentially the same thing he did.

Nice : D ,

I have a few C Mounts to use , what size is the thread of the mounting screw in the centre of the C Mount ?

Yeah, the nail soldering iron thing I was not expecting. Had to do things like that before though.
My screws that came with my housing were m2 screws.

Awesome red beam. How much does it cost to build this monster?

Just the diode is currently around \$350.

Re: C-Mount 5W 650nm Fun + Project Updates

Didn't realize it was still available. 1W on ebay is about \$100 if the didn't change it.
I just want my IR done but with no stock of lazeerer 5W adjustable I'm stuck.

Re: C-Mount 5W 650nm Fun + Project Updates

Searching the web, I'm not finding a 5 watt 650 laser diode for sale anywhere yet.

Closest I can find: https://sites.google.com/site/dtrlpf...t-diodes-w-fac

Perhaps it can be driven to 5W?

This is quite a big money. Have you ever blow such expensive LD?
