Default First laser build! With pictures and part list

Thought I'd try building my first laser using the following items and where I got them:

-S4 host (Same as C6 as far as pill/room goes) --Survivallaser
-Extended copper heatsink -- Survivallaser
-M140 445nm diode w/ 3 element glass --DTR laser shop
-X-drive 1.5A running at 8.4V -- Cajunlasers
-3/4" focus ring adapter -- Cajunlasers
-Blank contact board -- Survivallaser
-Temporary 2S lipo battery until my CR123A batteries come in the mail

Produces approximately 1.7W with a fully charged 2s lipo

Here we go.

First soldered the blank contact board followed by pressing it into the copper ring and drilled out pill to accept the x-driver



Next soldered the X-drive to the diode/contact board then put a little electrical tape since I ran out of heatshrink in that size



Snap shot of all the electronics together with the extended heat sink, I also did a thin layer of CPU paste around the copper diode.



Finished laser with the focus adapter in place



Beam shot of outside, I wish my camera could truly pick up the full brightness!



Good information on this forum, everything went smooth and quick.

Thanks!

Wow, this was pretty good, looks like a very powerful laser for a first build, That S4 Host, can you specify the make and model, I'm attracted to it.

Nice neat first build!

Good choice on using the S4 vs. the regular C6 IMO.
