    3D Printable Laser Diode Press Kit for TO-5 and TO-18 Laser Diodes and 12mm Modules

    I've been tinkering with 3D design a little bit and decided to make something useful for the community. After a few tweaks and some trial and error I have working designs for both TO-5 / 9mm and TO-18 / 5.6mm laser diodes. Since they're made from plastic they're certainly not as durable as the...

    NUBM34 Laser Blaster - 115+ Watts of Intense Blue Photons

    The NUBM34 Laser Blaster I decided to build a laser blaster using the NUBM34 laser diode array. This thing is insane! I ran two rows of diodes in parallel to the other two. Powered by a Milwaukee 18V battery pack and this is the boost driver I used...

    Best practices for cleaning thermal paste from diodes

    Please excuse me if this has already been covered. I tried searching but I didn't come up with an answer. What is the best and most efficient process to clean an "extracted" diode? I would like to remove all the thermal paste residue. I would like to try not to touch the diode window at all if...

    Decent Chinese Driver

    I've been experimenting with this driver quite a bit: The output current is controllable by adding or removing resistance at this point. It comes with an R200 resistor. I've removed it on one and simply bridged it with solder and got 4.5 amps out of the driver with 8.4 volts. It got hot...

    McClicky Tail Switches

    I just ordered a couple of the McClicky tail switches to replace the cheap ones that were in a couple of my hosts. With very little modification they fit right in and seem to work very well. Has anyone put these through any real tests? Do they really live up to their 6A power rating and do...
