For a time I wanted the 445nm forum hidden so that all the Arctic-N00bs would go away. That stupid laser attracted so much riff-raff to this forum (yes, I know some good people stayed too).

Makes sense.

I totally understand that such issues need to be discussed in detail, but maybe openly airing ideas to get around any measures taken by them is not the best idea when we also know they're currently actively trying to stop this?

Question Re: Casio seems to be potting projectors

Uhm, i remember i had to manage with some "tamper-proof" triangular screws, in the past ..... they was derived from tri-wing ones, but taking away the corners of the tri-wing in the unscrewing sense, so the screwdriver can get grip when you screw it in, but can't grip when you try to unscrew ..... maybe is just this type of screw ?

They look like a tri-wing, with sort of "triangular hole" overimposed ..... had a profile similar to this:



Is this the same of the new C. ones ?

Default Re: Casio seems to be potting projectors

hey gang

First of all, despite the fact that I am one of the "riff raff" that found this place as a result of the Arctic, I've learned a lot from this (and other similar) threads. I too was curious how the Cas projector played a roll in all this, and why people didn't just buy the diodes themselves - now I know.

Anyway, just thought I'd toss you an idea - how about starting an email list for discussion on hacking the Cas? This way you can invite whomever you like, have an "almost" real time discussion and keep the ideas away from prying eyes.

Plus, the riff raff (like me) won't be able to see what you're up to.

Good luck harvesting.

Actually, one more thing - isn't Wicked Lasers still getting all their diodes from the projector? If so, either they will have to come up with a way of getting the diodes out (thus proving it can be done) or else, poof - no more Arctic!

Default Re: Casio seems to be potting projectors

I used to like ka-c-o. They still deserve some respect for bringing us these diodes, but they should know better than to do all this crap to keep us from using them. It's not like we're stealing stuff. In my mind, if you give someone money and they give you something tangible in return, that item is as much yours as that money is theirs. How come we can't say "here's $800 for your projector, but you aren't allowed to use this money to do such and such"?

btw, I like the idea of a massive find and replace to clear ka-c-o's name from the forums. It's not censorship, it's just protecting our best interests.

Well, as some members have said here - it's not a matter of them being "nice or not nice"; its CYA and risk management.

Nobody here should expect a company to risk massive lawsuits and monetary loss just because we want to build lasers.

I don't think it's a matter of "want to or don't want to", it's a matter of them doing what's necessary for them to avoid liabilities down the line.

Additionally, they put in tons of R&D $$$ into these projectors -- imagine if certain markets decide to ban the PROJECTORS because of the ease of access to the diodes. They don't want that. They shouldn't have to want it. They're the ones who are fronting the money to make these diodes viable to normal people, and it is VERY imaginable that the result of extractions such as the Arctic could lead to wholesale banning of the projectors in certain markets - unless the diodes were made less easy to get at. That would be a huge loss for C., and one they really shouldn't have to take.

Allowing ease of access to 1W diodes goes a lot differently in court than potted,riveted, tamproof screws keeping them in.

If we can all be responsible for a while going forward here - we'll possibly all get green with minimal hurdles. But if it continues to be a dog and pony show, expect epoxied 'bars' once direct green happens.

If you're going to get angry, don't get angry at the manufacturer; get angry at litigious society and irresponsible users.

Default Re: Casio seems to be potting projectors

I started typing up a response to that, along the lines of "Well, they already used non-standard screws and loc-tited them, that should be enough for the courts," but this way, there is a mechanical AND chemical aspect to the extraction, making it require just that much more knowledge and skill to get these apart. That definitely would solidify their defense if any idiot tried to take 'em to court.

I think they should also make you solve a complex Maths problem before you can get to the diodes too.

On a slightly related note, how about this for a business model: find anything that can hurt someone, and sue the company for it! We'd make so much money!!! Who's in?

For one, it keeps this post off the radar. Google searches for 'c@$10 laser' spelled the normal way yield a high number of forum posts even from this forum. Let's not make it easier for them to find us plotting against them? I think a forum wide auto-replace would not be a bad idea right about now since they started throwing around legal threats.

The black potting is easily removed by soaking overninght in 4 parts methylene chloride and 1 part methanol. Nonflammable paint stipper also will do, same main ingredients with a gelling compound... Dimethylformamide is also able to remove it even faster, but it's watched.. Methelene chloride/methanol rots it off; DMF will actually disolve it.

Nice in theory, but keep the fluid and vapor away from the output window. Some of the output windows are not hermetically sealed on the 445 blues. I have two here that are lumia generators from leakage during cleaning using ultra pure methanol and acetone. I do not feel like cutting them open, but it seems some of the windows are just glued in rather then frit sealed, and cleaning the windows allows seepage, which allows the glue or gettering material to move onto the window. This is from older gen diodes, it is not a new factory reaction to harvesting. A friend has confirmed this on one of his when he cleaned them after a show.

Default Re: Casio seems to be potting projectors

DTR is getting the new a150 projector soon from what I understand. It would be interesting to see if the resin is used in it or not.
