Jeff helped, I'm sure

Welcome to the forum.

You did all the wiring yourself? If not, ask Jeff to show you some soldering tricks, it's a very useful skill to have no matter if you like lasers or not. Sooner or later you will need it.

Nice. What driver & current are you using?
You might want to grab some heat shrink from dx or ebay as its more secure.

I did everything except soldering the contact points on the driver. Jeff was afraid i was going to break it :/.

I'm using a rayfoss driver, and the currents running about 110mA.

I like how the battery holder seems to have been cut from some random object
