I'm selling my S3 445nm laser to fund my new hobby, Airsoft.
It has about 1.5h on time, comes with:
Modified training lens(no OD filter, straight from the collimating lens)
1 2600mAh DX protected 18650
WL Battery Charger
WL glasses (They are shit, don't use them)
So I was using my HeNe in my backyard and thought I'd get my dilda to compare colors, so I set it down focused it to the same size as my HeNe, but bumped it on the way up which set it perfectly back to infinity. I'm talking .12mRad-like infinity!
Here is a picture of the dot at around 17 Meters...
So I'm curious as to how you guys got into lasers, so share your story of the event that got you hooked.
My story is a short one and probably common, I had one of those cheap red lasers from the dollar store, and saw a green(oooh, shiiiny) laser, and thought it would be cool to have a new...
Right now there is this awesome lightning show with about 3-5 flashes per second mostly sheet lightning, but earlier it was slower but with pretty awesome fork lightning, and I got some videos with my high speed camera, I got 4 really good ones. My battery was dead when this started so I plugged...
I am currently on the lookout for a cheap but decent gaming laptop, and have looked at Alienware M15x with a few options and have it priced at 1568.00CAD$, with "Intel® Core™ i5-540M 2.53GHz (3.06Ghz Turbo Mode, 3M cache)" also a "512MB NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 240M" graphics card, plus "4GB Dual...
I'm having a bit of trouble choosing a 200mW green laser. I've narrowed it down to Rayfoss models FLX or FGB, FMK is ruled out as I don't have that much to spend. I've also ruled out waterproof lasers as well because I've heard that they have sub-par beams due to the water residue on the...
My DX Blu-ray is emitting 2 visible spectrum strips like a prism.
I first noticed this when I was wearing my yellow glasses from Glenn and examining the dot. I noticed this dim rectangle of yellow light, then I put the glasses in front of the laser and the dot completely...
When I checked my inbox today I found this obvious scam email.
This message might meet you in utmost surprise, however,it's just my urgent need for foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction. I am a banker by profession from Burkina faso in...
Got it solved.
Ok, I have looked and looked for some ballast resistors for my Hene tube that I am getting soon, and I can't find any that would work. I need 68K total ohms and the only one I can find are less than ten and are for cars and such. Does anyone know where I can get some that would...
It is no longer for sale.
I bought it as a 5mW from Dragonlasers but don't have an LPM to check, but I heard that they usually sell overpowered units.
I am looking for 275$ plus shipping and PP fee. It would include 2 batteries. (but no charger as I need it for my dilda.)
Ugh, wisdom teeth, I hate them, or rather I hate them getting pulled. That's what I did this morning, went to the dentist, little NOS, and BAM, I'm done, felling fine... till I get in the car and my mouth is just gushing blood, and it stayed that way for about 3 hours. I went through about 13-15...
So I finally got my fog machine and have been dying to take some pics, so I finally did and here they are! They are all taken in my garage.
The first few are shot with my 532nm using prisms from a really cheap set of binoculars.
The next few are with the same setup but with my...
So I got my Dilda a few days ago and have been having fun with it.
here's it popping balloons.
Popping from 10 meters away.
And cutting electrical tape quite quickly.
And engraving in my IA project made of Pine.
Sadly I don't have matches...
So i recently decided to open up one of my older 20mw greenies from DX, I'm getting a better 50mw
focusable so i didn't need this one.(plus I've got a few others like it) so i did a little experimenting and
made it so that it is able to start a match w/o an external focuser.
I got a...
