Default Question about my WL E3 Lunar.

well as stated in the title i have a WL E3 Elite Lunar(405nm 100mW)
so yesterday when i unscrewed the cap at the tip of the laser i saw 2 sets of threads under it....the first set that the cap screws into and a smaller set of threads, heres a pic.
https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/phot...eat=directlink

so im wondering.... could i simply screw in a G1 lens to make it adjustable? maybe like this one?
G-1 Lens Assembly

would it even fit?

or am i so for off base that i seem extremely retarded?(well.....more than usual anyway!) or is there anything i can do at all? i really dont like the way its just open at the end like this....(i set the end cap down for 2 seconds....my cat walked by....i heard something fall and i havent seen the endcap since! lol)

any input would be appreciated, and sorry about the noobishness, but hey..im learning.

Thanks,
J-Friendly.

2 conditions to put in the G1...

1- you need to take the original lens out. you cant put a lens over a lens

2- the existing threads are the same pitch as the G1

also member jayrob sells the G1 for cheaper i think.

(like is it connected to anything?)

Default Re: Question about my WL E3 Lunar.

It could be glued in place.... So in theory you wont damage the actual diode or driver. But you run the risk of scratching the lens. And this matters because if the lens is in fact glued in you might not be able to get it out.

Next order of business... If you were willing to spend 100 on a new lens I suggest buying all the a new host, driver and a 12x bluray and pay a memeber to build it. Your laser and a g1 wont come nowlwhere close to what I just mentioned.
