    Thanks CDBEAM777, titanium isn't much more difficult to machine than aluminum, though it does have very poor thermal conductivity properties so keeping your cutting tools cool while machining is critical.

    Laser Builds! Pics Included - Nubm07 and Nubm44 x2

    Just got done with my third build and decided to post all three of them. The first is an Nubm07 w/G8 lens running on a blackbuck 8m set to 4a with the potentiometer installed also including the sanwu 3x expander. The heatsink was machined entirely by me along with the titanium potentiometer...

    574nm 36 mW Yellow Laser

    Yeah, once things get sorted out with buyers on the back log I'd be in for a couple units if a group buy does come together.

    575nm OPT Laser Handheld Build

    The heat sink doesn’t get very warm, hardly noticeable, but the driver does generate some heat so I usually don’t run it too long.

    575nm OPT Laser Handheld Build

    The handle was just a ThorII host I machined down to get rid of the tactical look. The clear section is cast polyurethane resin I machined to accept the handle and heat sink. 80% of it I machined from stock material. The clear section was also to separate the handle from the module since the...

    575nm OPT Laser Handheld Build

    I have actually tried getting it working again, the mount that holds the crystal looks like its actually held in place with what looks like hot glue. What happened was I tried adjusting the lens and it became stuck and was very out of focus so I machined off the face of the section that holds...

    575nm OPT Laser Handheld Build

    I was lucky enough to get two of the 575nm OPT modules that were briefly available, one of which I killed :mad: and the second I was able to retrofit into a handheld unit :yh: its driven with a SXD-V3 set to 1.8a powered with two 16340 batteries. Unfortunately the color comes out green on in my...

    574nm 36 mW Yellow Laser

    Perfect! I have access to a lathe so I shouldn’t have too much trouble isolating the module.

    574nm 36 mW Yellow Laser

    Would a 1.8a x-drive work as long as I keep the module separated from the host?

    574nm 36 mW Yellow Laser

    Sorry to hear about your shipping troubles Alaskan, I was following your endeavors hoping to see how the blitz buck would turn out for you. I was considering ordering one myself to turn mine into a handheld. Hopefully it turns up for you.
