    DTR G8 lens

    @Lifetime17 you're absolutely right about the wavelength, this is my favorite out of 10 diodes I purchased. In my eyes there's a few that show significant difference ranging from turquoise to aquamarine in color. That difference quickly fades away when trying to get a picture :/ and other people...

    DTR G8 lens

    Sorry for the double Post but I finally figured out I can upload them if I crop them out of a bigger picture The g8 is still a really good lense. It works fantastic for this diode even if the box is still present just look at that beam

    DTR G8 lens

    @paul1598419 @steve001 I am using my Samsung Galaxy s9 and I haven't tried imgur yet I'll see what I can do. In the meantime, does anyone have pictures of the raw output of the 488 sharp diodes? I have seen some weird line of light on every diode I've tested for this wavelength. I'm confident...

    DTR G8 lens

    I am having a really hard time uploading the pictures. I have tried cropping them, taking them in low resolution but yet they are still too big to upload

    DTR G8 lens

    @DTR Don't get me wrong buddy, this is an amazing lense. I am currently using it on my 405nm bdr-209 running on about 600mA on a single 10440 lithium and I gotta say it's doing a wonderful job. Best I've used so far with that diode. As for the 488nm sharp diode, it might be a special case since...

    laser driver getting hot.

    @paul1598419 Well I'm gonna have to slowly buy good drivers to replace the ones I have at the moment Tha KS buddy. I like the small boost driver on his website. The microflex was it? I believe you recommended it to me at one point I believe

    DTR G8 lens

    @Lifetime17 yeah that's what I currently have on it and the artifact is noticeable on acrylic and even more so on glass lenses. @steve001 you're spot on as I also noticed that the diodes that have reflection lines on the raw output have the box artifact and the reflection directly correlates to...

    Looking for cheapest functional LPM (laser power meter). Will this one work?

    @lasersbee is the offer good for someone else? Lol I want to get my hands on an LPM but I didn't have the money put aside yet until recently, are there any offers for lpf members? Best regards Luis aka Laser Ranger 😎👍

    laser driver getting hot.

    Hey Paul, is there any thread where laser drivers are discussed? Not necessarily from a specific vendor but like reviews or test results of every driver available in a single thread so they can be compared and such... Ive searched in its section of the forum but I haven't found much info on most...

    Sorry for necroposting, but I still got the box artifact on my low wavelength 488nm diode.. It doesn't seem too different from everything else I've tried..

    WINNERWINNERCHICKENDINNERThe Auction Sniper Thread-

    Sounds like what I do on my free time lol I start with a low bid and go back to it every now and then to see how it's going. If it's getting high I do not bid until the last minute or less so as to not increase the price but only on very select items

    N465 9MM Laser Diode

    What's the lifetime of the diode once you remove the gball? Does it die fast too?

    WINNERWINNERCHICKENDINNERThe Auction Sniper Thread-

    Sorry for necroposting but I couldn't help it.. You mentioned someone sniping the 488nm labby possibly by another lpf member... Well I wasn't lpf member yet and neither was I using a sniping service.. I was able to win the auction for 30.99 and here's proof

    Sb308b292 diode with the color I've been looking for

    @BowtieGuy I can't wait to see your creation. I'm always excited to see builds with hosts in this size and style. I especially like the clicky switch. Push it half way and it can turn your laser on, push it all the way and it clicks and stays on @Lifetime17 oh yeah Ive seen some of their...

    Sb308b292 diode with the color I've been looking for

    Hey Rich thanks for the input about the host, one question, how do you support the board from crushing the diode pins once the battery is in? Or is it just snug enough to fit battery and battery blank without putting too much pressure on the pins? I've been using the copper hollow back half from...

    Sb308b292 diode with the color I've been looking for

    Thank you all for your comments! Im setting up the other diodes with some generic boost drivers so I can get a picture of the whole lot and how it differs from one diode to the next one. I'll include a picture of the craftsman host I used too.. I'm just about finishing up so here is a teaser for...

    Sb308b292 diode with the color I've been looking for

    As stated in the title. I've bought a hand full of these sharp diodes in the hopes of finding that sky blue / turquoise color and I've finally found one that I like. Its the 4th out of 6 diodes I've purchased and it's even bluer than one I had used in a tool AAA host.. The color I see on my...

    Hello from Los Angeles CA

    Welcome to the forum, I am from LA too. What are you looking for in a laser? Are you looking for a burner or something that will make a nice circular dot at long distance?

    Spent a weekend experimenting with stuffing M140s into pen hosts.

    Oh OK then it's the osram diode Edit: after checking both diodes, both have 3 pins and no numbers on the case

    Spent a weekend experimenting with stuffing M140s into pen hosts.

    @Sumfinclever Im not sure since I might have mixed up 2 diodes while pressing them but it's either osram plt5450b or a sharp gh04580A2g bought on fleebay for 12 bucks each and the driver is the generic boost driver for 405-445-450nm. I have not tested run times and I also have the diodes running...
