Thank you very much guys! :D
About the flux.. of course, tried many times, but it seems that the brass base of the led module sends most of the soldering iron's heat to any surface or table I'm working on, so heating it up to be able to solder it becomes a problem :(
I'll try again later...
Got a pt-54 from Flaminpyro some months ago (Thanks a lot! :D)
Been playing with this beast for a while, but I was saving it for a custom flashlight, I wanted the smallest 18650 host I could find, I ordered this little fellow and started working on the project as soon as I received it.
I've bought both diodes and drivers from modwerx, I recommend it 100%.
You can also power your doide with a led driver from delaextreme if you don't mind the risk of something going wrong :P ...do get a host from there
burning bugs is the most "useful" thing i've done with my 445
One professor of the university I attend is very interested on doing some experiments with a ttl laser I have, hopefully in a month or two we'll get to do some interesting stuff
Just get some goggles from ebay and test yours.
Put on your new goggles, focus your laser for burning, burn some stuff, put your dentist goggles in the beam, if your still able to burn stuff then they're definitely not safe... :crackup:
OF COURSE IM KIDDING
They're goggles made for a specific...
After saving some money for some months, I finally bought another diode, my laser is finally working again!
I also purchased a lens cover and a 445nm AR coated lens to replace the old glass lenses i've been using, which upon further inspection, appeared to be coated for red lasers...
