Default Re: Help me start on a small blue burning laser.

Treb, I just realized you said $4 shipped! Nice! That's good for me. I have thousands of washers, a heatsink will be no problem.

Just made a good purchase:

A) 2x 803t Diodes ($23.00 @ groupbuy)
B) 1x Rckstar driver with fixed output of 150mA ($14.04 using LPF as discount code)
C) 1x AixiZ blank housing ($4.00)
D) 1x 9V Battery Connector ($1.00)

Total: $42.04 shipped ... not bad, considering it's $1.96 cheaper than DX's $44 200mW laser (which probably is more with shipping). Even though its less raw burning power, violet will definitely be worth it! Ill update when it gets here.

Hi OHNOITZALASER

Just a short note... I am in no way related to DX but their prices include free shipping :-)

I, too, am a newbie. I am on my way to build 2 x violet laser based on 803T and one burning red.
Parts were bought from BluRay (Tommy) and ndrew (803T diodes)\

Wow thats pretty cool. But Im in the US I can't purchase >5mW from DX and an extra $15 for getting off group buy is the same thing as shipping really.

To be honest, while I don't want a fully made one, I do want some already made components, such as a rckstar driver because I want to hook it up to a 9V. Also, I am not extracting the diode since I don't have any blu-ray drives at home, so I will be purchasing two of them from a group buy.

A) What is the mW for the 803t?
B) How much current should I ask the seller to preset on it (I want to burn, life span not too important).
C) Do I need safety googles?

ALL blu-ray diodes are violet. Blue is a totally different story... They are DPSS and are very low efficiency <3% thats why there so expensive and lower powered then all the other colors.

There wouldn't be burning white lasers or black lasers possible would there? Though black would probably freak me out.

white lasers are often known as RGB laser; combine Red, Green and Blue in the right proportions and you get white.

Black laser? that's gotta come out from ink :-)

UPDATE:

Wesdaman14's GB just didn't work out for me. Had a trust problem after he changed up the GB so many times and I received numerous PMs telling me not to go with it. So, jake21 is hosting a GB @ $15/sled/shipped. The new budget list is:

A) 1x 803t Diodes ($15.00 @ groupbuy)
B) 1x Rckstar driver with fixed output of 150mA ($14.04 using LPF as discount code)
C) 1x AixiZ blank housing ($4.00)
D) 1x 9V Battery Connector ($1.00)

Grand Total: $34.04 ... what a price!
