    DIY Project Box Enclosure Build

    Here is a project I did earlier this year prior to my 7W NUBM44 Maglite build. I had a couple of weeks off work and wanted to try something that could be done without the assistance of a machine shop. The host (if you want to call it that), was an “Aluminum DIY Project Box Enclosure Case” found...

    7.3W 450nm NUBM44-V2 Maglite Build

    Hey guys, here is another project I completed this summer. This is something I've been wanting to build since the 44-V2s became available. I've been holding off on posting this until I could get some decent night shots, and we have finally had a solid week of crystal-clear night skies! The host...

    488nm Sharp GH04850B2G Build

    Here is another build that I made this year using a 488nm Sharp GH04850B2G. I machined a small heatsink and affixed it to the threaded insert with Arctic Alumina (it works ;)) It was a DTR packaged diode/ driver, I'm not sure which driver it is or what it it's set to, based on his...

    900mW 525nm NUGM03 Build

    Hey guys, here is one of my 2020 additions to the collection, a NUGM03. This beautifully made compact host was made by Lifetime17, thanks Rich! The color of the powder-coated heatsink is a close match for the 525nm wavelength. It's powered by a Super X-Driver set at 1.8A running off of 2x 18350...

    405nm BDR-209 Build

    Hey guys, it’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything. The past few months have been a bit crazy as I’m sure they have for all of us. I’ve made a few new builds during my time away and I’ll try to get them posted as I find the time. Here is my 405nm BDR-209 build. The build was...

    Night Lapse Footage (with Lasers!)

    Recently I bought a GoPro Hero 8 to get better pictures of laser night shots. Here is a 4K Time/ Night Lapse that I shot last night with various lasers! If you're like me, you would probably try to pause each frame to see the 'still' of each laser, rest assured, I did that for you. ;) 1...

    Laser Power Meter Question - (Hyperion Argentum)

    This weekend I finally purchased an LPM (the Hyperion Argentum to be specific). I feel like this is pretty much a noob question, but I wasn't able to find what I was looking for as there was little documentation on this meter, other than the thread from astralist in 2016. My question is, is...

    500mw 638nm Mitsubishi ML501P73 Build (w/pics)

    Here is a red powdercoated side-button host made by Lifetime17 (thanks again Rich!) His host came with the standard 18650 adapter. After I purchased the host from him, I ordered a handful of new batteries from Liion Wholesale. While ordering, I accidentally added 4x 21700s to my cart (thinking...

    De-Canned NUBM44-V2 (with pics)

    A few weeks ago I ordered a couple NUBM44-V2’s. Unfortunately, (due to user error) one of the diodes must have had some sort of particle on the lens. (An expensive lesson learned to always have some canned-air on hand when changing lenses!) This particle was instantly fused to the diode window...

    1W 520nm Nichia NDG7475 T6 Build (w/pics).

    Here is the 1W 520nm NDG7475 T6 that I built shortly after the 4W NUBM07 build (since I had another heat sink available at the time). The module was from DTR with a Super X/Drive set to 2.2A. It was the same concept as the previous build, the light green powder coat was the only color green that...

    4W 465nm NUBM07 T6 Build (w/pics).

    I thought I'd share my build pics of my 4W 465nm NUBM07 that I built sometime in 2017. Module was from DTR with an X/Drive preset to 3.5A. The build was from a T-6 flashlight and aluminum heatsink that I had turned and powder coated at work. The fab company I work for has a lathe but it is...

    Hello from (near) Pittsburgh..

    Hello LPF! Im a new member, but have been coming to the site periodically for info for around 5 years. So I’ve been obsessed with beams since the purchase of my first ‘real’ laser (WickedLasers Executive Fusion 125mw) back in 2007. At that time I had not even began to think of trying to build my...
