Default NUBM44 Handheld Build - Stainless steel

Wow okay so this turned out a lot better than I was expecting. I had originally traded a member for a NUBM44 project box build, and long story short I used the module from this build:


Image taken by Crazlaser, who traded the build with me

This is basically a win-win because I can use the rest of the box build as a test setup for other modules and the 44 modules for the handheld.

What happened for the most part was I was actually just screwing around with a bit of stainless tubing I found in the shop, and had an idea to put a 532nm module in it. After turning the notches in the front of the body I noticed that the inner diameter might be able to house the 20mm nubm44 module from the box build.

Turns out it was actually ~18.5mm, though I bored out the front section to a little under 20mm and press fit it into the tube with a contact board. After testing that I went ahead and made a tailcap for it, and at this point was when I thought to put the BE on it. The BE adapter stuck out a little which looked a bit weird so I made a "filler" ring out of copper which also acted as a focus ring for the main lens and filled the gap between the expander and the body. This worked out flawlessly.

Turns out that the best projects really are unplanned ones.

The only thing that really isn't good about this build is the duty cycle, it'll comfortably go to a minute but nothing past a minute and a half. Not only is stainless not the best heat conductor but the walls of the tubing ended up being pretty thin.

Here's some final shots, I didn't take many shots of the machining process because I had no idea it would be such a build.






Thanks for reading!

“He who believes in Him is not condemned;

And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

Wow Electricplasma! That's awesome. The beam expander is a super nice touch to that diode and the host is really clean looking. I'm glad you're able to use the box as a test box, that's a great idea, I never even thought of that. +10
How long did it take to make the host? Also what batteries does the host fit, and what's burning range like the with BE?

btw, the 3 watt is still going good, was just using it tonight!

Thanks! I'm even adapting the XYZ mount to work with 12mm modules as well and using a set screw + alligator clips for quickly swapping. I thought it suited well as a test setup.

The host was more of a side project than anything so I didn't dedicate time specifically to it, but I worked on it over the span of about a week. Great to hear the Silver Series is still holding up!!
