question, if you ground it to the laser case pin, doesnt this create more heat to the laser diode?

a case positive aplication would generate more heat i think... or maybe im thinking backwards... but im pretty sure i was warned about my case positive 450Ma red OC that it will get allot hotter that way...and sure enough i changed it around and vuala! cold burning laser, and it was ALWAYS warm to the touch after use. i was told to always go case negative unless the diode requires a special aplication or something weird.

someone more experienced should chime in on this matter.

Hi, bennycast,
I don't think grounding the case pin is going to cause more heat, according to the
Laser pin out diagram, that pin is not used. The point of grounding it is to use it as a pathway to the negative connection to the battery so no extra wires are use.

I cut a piece from the circuit board of one of the DVD drives I took apart, I just used my dremmel tool and scraped out all the electronic components and tried to leave the other side intact, only scrapping the borders.

Default Ny Custom Labels

I was looking around for some labels, but I could not find any that I really like, so I created my own. If someone is interested I am sharing the originals, they are in my photo-album.

I had problems with that too till I asked Dark Horse.

He let me know that there is a tiny hole on one or both of the sides of the guts, use a small sharp pointy tool and poke it in there then twist the entire guts out, it will screw out.

Default Re: Sliver Kit From Dark Horse.

are, is the force of the battery pushing against the pcb which pushes against the flexdrive which is attached to the diode. If so isn't that potentially bad?

Default Re: Sliver Kit From Dark Horse.

use some spread out tweezers put put in the gorroves on the side of the pcb and screw it out. once you get that out the rest should just fall out.

the groove on the bottom of the sink is made for a 17mm pcb. me and D_H found that was the easiest way to make + contact with the batts when we were working out the bugs for a build i did a while back. you can get the 17mm pcb's from DX in the DIY flashlight section...

p.s. you can see pics of one of my sliver builds here:
