    FS: ***MXDL Custom Machined Heatsinks***

    Re: F.S. ***MXDL Custom Machined Heatsinks*** I had also stolen my neighbor's hatchet from the shed out back. Looks like I've got to go back to see if he's got a screwdriver. Seriously, I lifted the lid, but didn't see an obvious route to the diode. Thought I'd ask, cause everything else in...

    FS: ***MXDL Custom Machined Heatsinks***

    Re: F.S. ***MXDL Custom Machined Heatsinks*** I bet that someone has posted info or even pics on removing diodes from DVD burners. But where? <g> I picked up the Sony, as recommended in this thread. Don't want to complicate things if the process is already outlined. I do have access to a large...

    Gogglels for 650nm?

    Thanks. There are also the ones from WickedLasers. Doesn't seem to be a big price difference, unless shipping is high: http: // www . wickedlasers.com/lasers/Red_650nm_LaserShades-49-16 . html (How long til I can post links on LPF? That's awkward. I can't even quote a URL in a previous post)

    Gogglels for 650nm?

    Who are the better vendors for goggles for filtering 650nm? There's an Ebay vendor called ZoneStealth, with an auction here: http: // cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220200274713 (sorry about the spaces...LPF won't allow me to post links yet) Anyone have any idea if those are decent?

    Re: ***MXDL Custom Machined Heatsinks*** Jay, Are you recommending the Meredith module over Aixiz? I presume that's cause of the glass lens vs plastic, right?

    Laser diodes--Anyone know about these?

    So you think the power rating is accurate? Please send us a quick note to let everyone know how that works out. I've seen other mention of the seller (Crystallabs)...so positive, some not.

    Laser diodes--Anyone know about these?

    I think this vendor has been selling these on Ebay for a while. Anyone know anything about the diodes? I think the diode is supposed to be J8Y4M4C by Mitsubishi. See Ebay item number: 120222334538 Seller is Crystallabs (Sorry, I guess my lack of seniority prevents me from posting direct links)

    FS: ***MXDL Custom Machined Heatsinks***

    Re: MXDL Custom Machined Heatsinks Excellent info. Thanks to all. Looking at Daedal's DIY thread (drilling fender washers, etc), I see why the heatsink makes so much sense, even if it were just for mounting. Jayrob, you should consider making a complete case. A major glitch in making these...

    FS: ***MXDL Custom Machined Heatsinks***

    Re: MXDL Custom Machined Heatsinks The heatsink looks nice. Great idea. Q's about parts: Gazoo, your list says $45 for the Meredith module. The LDC-2 is $35, right? Did you have some other module in mind? Also (anyone?), what is the best source for a High-power diode? Is it really necessary...

    Source for Compact portable, hi-watt under $100?

    Re: Source for Compact portable, hi-watt under $10 Thanks to all for the recommendations. I did check the link (had to delete it from my reply...seems I can't post links yet). The Kenom page looks interesting, but didn't have much detailed info (didn't say what kind of battery is used, or...

    Source for Compact portable, hi-watt under $100?

    Anyone have any recommendations for sources for Red portables, 150mw or more, under $100? Hopefully something with decent diode longevity (which diode brands? Senkat?) Thanks
