    My First Argon

    So after getting an HeNe for the first time I decided that I wanted to give Argons a try. I am very glad I did that is for sure. Dave is such a great guy he even delivered the laser to my house himself and that is much appreciated. The laser and power supply are freaking giant. I was totally not...

    My first HeNe :D

    I finally got one of Dave's(daguin) 543nm HeNe lasers and it arrived today. It's my first HeNe and I have to say I am HOOKED on gas lasers. It is unfortunate that it set me back $111 for a ~2mW laser but its totally worth it now that it is on my desk. I have had it turned on way too long today...

    Attempting my first red build

    Well, I started off with a ML520G71 Mitsubishi 635nm 300mW and I am now morning its death. An autopsy by Dr.DTR shows that it likely died due to a power spike when I turned on my PSU.... ok, so not an autopsy but that's what he thinks happened. First off I was a noobstick and completely missed...

    Bench PSU to charge batteries?

    Does anyone have any experience using a bench PSU to charge their batteries? I am looking for a way to charge them using my PSU but I don't know exactly how I should hook up the batteries and if I will need additional components. I would like to use two charging speeds, one at 250mA(slow) and...

    Cooling a 2W

    Any suggestions on a thermal epoxy for use with drivers? My plan is to stick a small heatsink on the driver and then fill the area around it in the host/pill with thermal epoxy to make a solid connection. Or, is there a better way to do it? Also, what about putting Arctic Silver 5 between the...
