Question I'm out of the loop, Please update me.

Okay. I have access to CNC lathe all I can ever want, as much time as I want.

I need to know the following:

Where can I get 1W 445nm Diodes for cheap?
Whats the best lens to go with now days? Last i heard it was JayRob 405 glass
Microboost/flexdrive the bset to go with still?
Whats the long-operating power now days? I run at 1.0A

I know some members here have diodes selling to LPF members only, but not sure who...I want to build my own laser, and im looking for whatever it takes to make it powerful. Is there any beam correcting yet?

Thanks guys. Will help me a lot

1. DTR http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/dt...ore-61678.html
2. Depends. The 3 element lenses are best for maintaining a good beam, the 405-G-1 will give the best power output
3. There are lots of other options, such as the ben boost, the blitz buck and the mohgasm linear drivers. They are cheaper to so you don't have to spend 26$ a driver
4. The max now is about 1.8A. I believe the "safe current" is 1.4A-1.6A
5. Beam correcting can be done with prisms or cylindrical optics. Not easily achieved in pointers though.

Whats the diff on a M140 and H1600 Lens? Price diff...and I see he sells a 405-G2?

The PL450B 450 is new to me, as well..

No big difference on the M140 vs H1600, might be a more efficient bin of the same day, might not be. http://laserpointerforums.com/f65/14...ml#post1069941

405-G-2 is very similar to the G-1, a little bit less power output though because of the ways it's put together.

The PL405B 450 is a single mode diode, so you get great beam specs but as the cost of lower powers.
