    I need help opening this laser

    my laser doesn't work, just a weak red light (but it's green) Model JD-851

    In reality, nothing had to have "happened to" the laser for it to fail. It does not necessarily require a bump or drop. Sometimes the temperature just reaches a tipping point. Sometimes it is simply that it has heated up enough times for something to shift. Often, there is no one to blame but...

    Some issues with my 1.2w 445nm laser, what to do?

    These are cheap and easily obtainable via eBay, DX, etc. Also, if you are going to be hunting critters, there are better options to use than a laser ;)

    Fun thread - What song was #1 on the day you were born

    What host does styropyro use.

    Yeah. When he was building these, he was originally only making single 18650 hosts. I talked him into making this host for me to use 2 x 18650's to power the "new" 9mm 445nm diodes :beer: Peace, dave

    What host does styropyro use.

    Are you referring to this one? If so, that is a host that I had custom made by DeadEYeMo Laser Pointer Forums - Discuss Laser Pointers - View Profile: DeadEYeMo He turned them, individually, by hand. AFAIK, his shop is no longer making them I think that his son was going to continue, but I...

    What's a daguin?

    Thank you. I'm only 27 in my mind ;) I don't post much any more We agree on a great many things. It is just that we only spend time and energy speaking about things that we differ on ;) I'm always "around". About all I do now is moderating duties in the background :tinfoil: There is a "W"...
