Default First timer wanting to build & needing advice

Hi fellas,

I have seen so many of the threads with people showing multiple builds with different hosts (which im assuming is the different torch shells) and different mW strengths etc.

I am from Melbourne Australia & they are illegal to have here, but I used to own a handheld UV laser (somewhere between 2-3W) which I was in love with, but it was unfortunately stolen.

Because I can't manage to get my hands on another one I've decided I want to try build one similar to the one I had.

I'm very familiar with soldering/wiring etc and am pretty confident I can do it without too much trouble.

Could anyone point me in the direction of a tutorial/guide to make what I'm after + what I need to buy & where I can order it from?
Will I have a problem getting anything through Australia customs??

I hope I'm not asking too much!

Many thanks xoxo

Well a quick search yielded me some pretty awesome results. I came across a member here named DTR. He sells the bare diodes. https://sites.google.com/site/dtrlpf/home/diodes

UV would be about 405nm. The 16X BDR-209 Bluray Diode would probably give you around 1 watt and 650 mA of current.

405 isn't UV, it's Near-UV. UV starts around 380nm

Which is exactly why I said about 405. There is UVA, UVB, and UVC UVA is 315-380, UVB is 280-315, and UVC is 100-280. All of which are not visible. The closest visible I think he is after would be a 405 blu ray diode.
