Hello again LPF,
This post is an inquiry about how easy it is to fix a problem such as this:
This eBay listing is pretty cheap and includes 2 melles griot HeNe tubes, the
only problem is that the wires have been clipped. how easy would it be to
strip the casing of the tubes, remove the clips...
Today I have discovered something fairly interesting. One of my previous hobbies was RC cars. I had an RC car called the MLST/2 which had a dual motor configuration.
These motors would get VERY hot and thus needed heat dissipation.
Earlier i decide to take those heatsinks off of...
I discovered gas lasers through this forum, specifically bloompyle. I am facinated with their multiline behaviors and i think i would like to purchase a good multiline HeNe. I'm tight on cash so nothing fancy ($100ish, more if i need to). I would love to buy from a USA member or if...
I got my G9 Lens in the mail a minute ago but I'm still not at home. I will update with plenty of picture of the extraction process. Still to be determined if i make a mistake and waste $30. that would be a shame.
For the past two days, Tracking by USPS has said "on truck for...
Hakzaw1 brought to my attention that i had named myself after someone who is much more known than myself, Dr. Sam. I do not have a Dr. prefix in my name so I decided i owed it to him to change me name. My new username will be "SKeeZ" (don't judge me) so i thought i'd let...
Hello guys, I just finished my blue laser and i thought its time to add a green to the collection. I really wanted to do a pen build in Jayrob's silver pen host and i immediately thought PL520. So, I decided to bet a PL520 (520nm) with an acrylic lens and a pre-soldered microboost set at 300mAh...
C6 M140 Blue "Chill"
Hello all, It has come time for me to share my long awaited (on my part at
least) first build of a Class IV 445nm laser. It is a rather picture heavy post
but i hope you all enjoy scrolling. The parts for my laser are:
Diode: M140 from DTR
Not sure why i decided this was a good idea but hell, if these turn out to be ligitimate (highly unlikely) it might even be worth it. So heres the story. I built My 2W C6 laser and i don't have batteries for it. So, i went on eBay and found some "ultrafire" (definitley not ultrafire) 5ooomAH -...
If someone could be so kind as to point me to someonw who sells the G9 lens without (or with) the lens holder.
I understand that it performs better than a G2 but i am wondering why i cant buy it anywhere except on a 9mm diode
Hello guys this is just a post that i felt necessary because i haven't posted on the first forum of the website yet. Might as well ask a question:
What is the prettiest wavelength in your opinion? share your opinion below
I am going to be making a 2W 445nm C6 Hosted laser and mi would rather have (or in adition to) a momentary switch end cap. If you have a C6 host, would it be easy to modify it? or is there a replacement cap online that has a momentary switch integrated.
I got bored last night SO, I made a Laser lighter. Its just 5mW so its just a joke but i hope you enjoy. Its powered by 2 AAAs shuved in a lighter. Heres what it looks like:
The diode at the end of the "flame tube"
Beam with lots of fog
I need an idea for a soft start 17/16.8mm driver that will hold a steady current and not fry my diode to quick. My budget is about 40 bucks. Ideally I
want to run the M140 Blue (445nm) module at 1.0W or maybe 1.25. If 1.25 is going to damage the driver I'm OK with 1.0W...
Hello Laser Pointer Forums,
Today i purchased parts for my 1W 445nm Blue laser. I was wondering if anyone has any pointers for building in the C6 host, soldering, etc. This is my first DIY laser build and i don't want to mess it up. I would also like to know a place to get cheap and...
