    Four Motor Spirograph

    I've seen a lot of spirograph builds, and quite honestly, better than mine but I decided to post anyhow. Hopefully it will help some people in regards to these builds. First I'd like to say I built this as cheap as I could, and it's certainly not the smallest. I decided to make it 4 motors...

    My Pocket Mini Collection is Growing.

    A few months ago I posted about my 445nm mini build: mini-445nm-build-pics I've finally had a chance to build a couple more. :D Some pics to start: I didn't take any pics of the build in progress because Jayrob has those in his FS/tutorial thread. A BIG thank you to Jayrob, he...

    HELP with power supply for spyrograph

    Well I finally finished my 4 motor laser spyrograph build. Here are some pics: I used 4 DC motors 1.5V-3.0V, 4x25 Ohm rheostat pots, 4xDPDT switches (3A rated), and a 50mW green module (2.9V-3.0V) So I thought I could use this DC adapter to power it: It provides 1A and I can select how...

    What are your favorite Iphone/Android games?

    I recently upgraded to a Droid X and love it! :D I use Verizon and was going to get the Iphone but I decided on the Droid X instead. I love how so many apps for this thing are free. First I got hooked on Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons. I'm anxiously waiting for more updates and levels...

    Mini 445nm build with pics

    Well since I sold all my lasers recently I was feeling kinda lonely. I had a flexdrive, 445nm diode, host and heatsink sitting around so I decided to put one together. I bought this host months ago. I think it's the same host jayrob uses for his pocket mini. ;) DealExtreme: $12.83 Ultrafire...

    HELP!!! My computer won't turn on!!

    Ok. I've had a PSU fail on me before, so I got a new one, hooked it up and everything was fine for about 2 years. Then the other day I turned my system off and now it will not turn back on!!! So I thought, probably another bad PSU, so I ordered another, hooked everything up and... nothing...

    FS: Optotronics 532nm 150mW laser

    I've decided to sell the three lasers in my (small) collection and a few other things. I'm certainly not getting out of the game, just need some cash right now. I've never sold anything here on LPF. For that reason, I decided to use a MM (Dave--Daguin). He checked out the condition of the...

    Wiring 4 Motor Spyro Help

    So I'm building a 4 motor laser Spirograph. I'm using four 1.5V - 3.0V DC motors, four 25 Ohm Rheostat Pots, and four DPDT switches. I originally had it all wired up without the switches but had a couple of issues. 1. It would drain the batteries really fast with 1 or more pots turned to...

    This is long overdue. I have order from Greg at StoneTek Electronics, Your Laser Parts Store a few times and always get what I paid for. Shipping is extremely fast and well packaged. The diodes I ordered were wrapped in anti-static bags, then put in small, hard plastic containers to protect...

    Ehgemus does it again!!

    For my first 445nm build I wanted a good custom host so I choose Ehgemus and he does not disappoint!!! It has everything I asked for. The easy-focus adapter is set up so I can screw the aixiz lens nut right into it, no gluing the aixiz focus ring into it. The threads are smooth as can be...

    My first build

    I want to share the progress on my first build to both get the opinions of the veterans of the LPF and to give some tips I’ve learned. Everything I have learned is directly from reading LPF. I have no training in electronics or soldering. In fact, the most soldering I have ever done was over...

    Help with my first build

    I’ve been reading this forum for some time now and was hoping to get some of the veterans expertise. I’ve read the Tutorials, Help & Repairs forum many time and it’s a huge help but I was hoping for some more tutelage on my first build. So far I’ve purchased a rckstr driver (after reading more...
