    Dreams about lasers

    I recently had my wisdom teeth pulled so I wasn't surprised when I awoke last night at 4:30 feeling like my mouth was on fire. So I took a Percocet and an ibuprofen and went back to sleep (in total I slept for about 12 hours). Then I had a dream about the WhiteFusion kit and I was actually...

    XJ-A150 for $1173?

    Posted about this in the 445nm diodes thread but I think it deserves its own thread. I found a Casio XJ-A150 for 780 GBP or about $1173 USD. That's about $49 a diode before shipping/ profit. I don't know if it's the real deal or not or even if anyone wants to buy it now that they are being...

    Motorized Bicycles

    I just bought an 80cc (it's really 66cc) engine kit of ebay to turn my mountain bike into a mopedish beast. It should be able to go about 30mph top speed on flats. Here is the kit: 80cc bicycle motor kit motorized gas engine bike Black - eBay (item 250576239308 end time Mar-08-10 12:35:38 PST)...

    New CNI Portables

    I haven't been following CNI's 532nm handhelds/ portables too closely lately so I'm not sure how many of these are new, scroll down to handhelds/ portables: 532 nm green laser. I know for a fact the focusable is new, and I believe that the PGL-III-M-532 is new. Thanks for reading. Edit: I...

    Amount of IR in O-like Modules

    I am trying to found out how much IR light an O-like 150mW or 200mW old style (regular brass) emits. I'm hoping someone on this forum has one of these modules, an LPM and an IR filter. I searched using LPF's search box and the Google Search Box on LPF however it is a PITA to find any actual...


    Does anyone here own a 515nm laser? I would love to see pics.

    Hooking up Xbox Live

    Now with MW2 out I really want Xbox live. I have a 360 and halo and a couple other games but never really wanted live for some reason. So what is the best method? My xbox is in my basement and my computer is directly above it on the first floor (I don't know if that matters). I'm not sure if I...

    DX Cell Phone Blockers

    Has anyone bought or used one of the DX Cell Phone Blockers? I know they are illegal in the US but I think DX still ships them here. They seem pretty crappy but maybe they can be tweaked to use at longer distances. I might just try to but one since they are under $30. Thanks...

    Propeller design

    I was thinking about the Egg Drop thread and the Math Homework help thread so I figured I would start a tech ed help thread. I don't really need help, its not like I'm going to fail if I can't think of a design but I always like to hear the opinions of LPF members. That said, in tech ed we are...

    45W 532nm

    I rarely venture into the industrial section of CNI's website and when I did I happened upon the 45W 532nm laser: http://www.cnilaser.com/PDF/HPL-532-Q.pdf Now I am wondering, what the hell is one of these lasers used for?? I thought lasers used for cutting were generally in the IR range. And...

    LPM Tested Rayfoss 200mW

    Has anyone LPM tested their 200mW Green Rayfoss laser? I looked in the reviews but they all were (or seemed) underspec. They claim to be 180 to 220 mW. Does anyone know what the modules used in these lasers look like? The O-like 200mW Green Module based on two reviews is only about 160 average...

    Custom Copper Powder Heatsinks

    Would Copper Powder be suitable to use as a heatsink in lasers? I realize it would be very important to seal off the powder once it is poured around the diode/module, as to not interfere with the electronics and not scratch the diode. It seems like it would be much easier and cheaper than having...
