7 days ago i contacted Jon at OdicForce and told him about my problems, he agreed to send me a new one free of charge, today it arrived and it works perfect =) Im just driving it at 93mA:

Hi, i did solder it myself, it was forced into the housing before it got solderd so atleast some of the heat should have been transfered to the housing. Its hard for me to say if it got any damage from that, i tried to be quick but well, maby is all i can say =/ I can get a picture of the raw...
This is the housing ive got:

So im better off using the acrylic lens? I need the TTL, im using the laser connected to a microcontroller.
There is not to much...
Yea, its not as weak as a LED right? I wish i had a LPM!
Im powering it with a 12v transformer that im regulating down to 9v with a LM317 so i know i got enought power into the driver.
I can try to build a LM317 driver to eliminate a faulty driver. Unfortunately im on vaccation until Sunday so...
It should be okey with but not for to long as far as i know.
I bought the 3element glass lens from Odicforce:

The strange thing however is that i get a verry short "focus...
Im using this driver from Odicforce:
Laser Driver Board V1 - 80-300mA+ optional TTL - Detailed item view - OdicForce Lasers Online Shop
Sorry for the blurry picture. The diode is connected with case negative as described by Odicforce. The driver is feed with 9v and the TTL is connected to 9v...
I finally recived my laser goggles yesterday and started to assembly my PHR-805 module.
Its now working and i get a laser-ish output, but its nothing like the power i thought it would have, from what i have heard a 80-100mW 405nm diode would light a match when focused. I have set the power to...
Yea, i guess they are untested, is there a acceptable way to test the goggles without a LPM? Aiming the beam straight at the glasses and see what gets through or is there a risk that there might be alot of invissible UV getting trough?
Im looking for 2 pairs of 405nm goggles in Europe for a decent price.
I found those, could they be trusted to give enought protection from a 100mW 405nm laser?

If not, can anyone help me to find some goggles in...
How would you solve it? I dont care if its placed before or after the galvos as long as i get a small beam, the smaller the dot is, the better resolution i can get with the printer, with a resolution of 4096 dots in 15cm the optimal beam size would be 0,04mm. I dont think that i will get a beam...
Now i have orderd a PHR-805 from odicforce for testing, will probably be something stronger later on but i think this is good for a start, some goggles left. Thanks for the shop tips, ill check them out!
EDIT, anyone got a good European site that i can get goggles for a good price?
