Man I am really beginning to worry about my order of 5 LDs. Seems most people have got theirs and I am still waiting. Have a feeling mine have slipped through the cracks :'(

Na be patient they will come.
I really pleased with my laser. It's covered in duct tape!!!
Made from one mini maglite - esque metal torch, one plastic tube and one collar/ small socket thing that holds the LD housing. I kinda extended the torch with the plastic tube so the circuitry fits.
The collar thing, big end goes on plastic tube, small end has the LD.
Push on - push off button on the end of the torch, other end.
Plastic cap covering button for safety.
Whole thing covered in duct tape. Except a gap where the tailcap unscrews for batteries.
I LOVES IT!!!
Lit matches, popped balloons, laser engraved my multimeter, and cut rubber bands. KK all you people still waiting, hang in there and get your housing and control circuitry ready. That way when they arrive you will be ready.
Gotta change my sig now...
Building DVD laser -- <250mw Red
becomes
SenKat DVD Laser - <200mW red (cos i measured it wit multimeter)

Hehee I am ready. Have had the torches from DX and my driver circuit built for a few weeks now. Even have the AixiZ housings installed. All I need are the LDs

19 days to arrive is making me worry. Almost resigned myself to the fact that I blew away $80 :'(

I skipped a few pages bc I didn't feel like reading "I want 5" and "put me doen for 3" etc

If you still have a box or two of these, I'll be buying once I get money again (hopefully soon... when the times comes I'd like to be able to send you the $42 I owe you AND the $$$ for a half-dozen diodes! but only time will tell...)

@ xgeek, you are not alone in the waiting game...UK deliveries do take some time.

I too have everything ready, just a bit of soldering to do when the LD's arrive.

Hey Senkat!

I just recieved my Diode through the post today. I'm in the UK, so I'm guessing others in my part of the world will have started to recieve their's as well.

I love the little red box they come in!


Well done!
I read that you probably won't be ordering again - but if you could find another cheaper supplier - count me in for a few. I mean the supplier's taking the piss - come on! I wouldn't mind if the price of the actual goods fluctuated because of market cost - but doubling the price for the hell of it!?!?

There must be more than 1 seller of diodes out there....


Anyway,

Cheers

Dan :-)

All they are available again in a new group buy - different distributor, since that last guy took off with my $4,000 + and I ahve not heard a peep from him....I am well on top of trying to recover the funds, jsut will needa phenominal amount of luck, i am certain check the new group buys section for the new thread - of course, the sales site is still operational, and these ARE pre-order....meaning I have to collect teh funds prior to sending off for them...

Greg

P.S. The new distributor is in the US, and I will be paying via credit/debit card - so I am protected 100% from fraud with this new guy ! YAY !
