    Host with fins

    Has anyone used this flashlight host before? I'm trying to find a host that has fins on it... more for look then functionality as I doubt they would dissipate that much heat.

    Old PS3 lasers

    Hey guys, I have one of those old PS3 laser sleds lying around (Remember when those were popular? ;D) and was wondering what driver could power it that takes 1.5V. If memory serves me right they take 38mA, but none of the existing drivers go that low and operate at 1.5V. However... I could be...

    Visa gift card FROM HELL

    I recently received one of those "Visa Gift Cards" that was worth $30. I went to buy $29.95 worth of games on steam but it didn't work. I went to check my balance online and it was $29. Wierd, I thought, so I went to try again but removed a $.99 game. Once again it didn't work and now my account...

    Waterproof Laser Build

    So I've always wanted to build a water proof laser out of these old flashlights I had lying around and I finally got around to doing it yesterday. The flashlight in question is this "freebee" that my Mom got from work, I don't think you can buy them at Target or anything. It's covered in this...

    Do you like my website?

    I created this website for a school project a few weeks ago and was wondering what you guys think of it. The point of the project is to 1. Realize how easy it is to publish your opinion/views to the public and 2. Assess what "Marketing Strategy" you used worked the best (How come you got the...

    Help! My batteries arn't charging!

    I have a PHR running on a flex drive in a dorcy jr. set up so I'm using CR123 batteries to power it. The batteries that the dorcy came with worked fine for two weeks or so, then just stopped working abruptly because the voltage dropped too low (or maybe they couldn't supply enough amps?). I...

    Do my saftey glasses work?

    I was using my bluray to test out burning some stuff a little while ago and I had my glasses on that I got from Nova. It says they are OD 6 for 190-532nm but after a while my eyes started to hurt. When burning with my green laser this never happens, and the dot from green seems a lot dimmer then...

    Broken x-100?

    I have had my x-100 for a while, and a while ago I did something to it and the beam is kind of scattered. While there is still a dot and beam, both of which are nice and bright, around the dot there is a significant amount of clutter. It can burn a lot of things still, but it doesn't light...

    I think I'm retarded

    Ok, I'm not retarded, but I'm sure confused as hell. I know people have reputation points, you either have a good reputation or a bad one. However for the life of me I can't figure out how to give or take away points from someone... can someone help me figure this out?

    DIY flashlights

    I wasn't quite sure where to post this, but I suppose this section will do. I remember seeing a youtube video a long (long, long, long) time ago of a flashlight lighting newspaper. I never thought much about it, but now that I got into the whole laser hobby thing I decided to venture out and...

    SenKat and StoneTek

    Hello, I have never purchased anything from SenKat famous StoneTek electronics laser diode supply.

    What is your favorite laser color?

    Lets just pretend for a second that you could get any laser color you wanted at any power for free. In other words, power and price don't matter right now. With that in mind, please answer the following poll. It would be interesting to see what people like. (Please try and avoid the 'other'...

    X-75 or X-100?

    I sent back my X-15 to Novalasers because although it was fun, it was useless. So, whenever I get my rebate I am going to have to decide on what laser I should get with my $99 rebate. I am unsure weather or not I should get a X-75 or an X-100 :-/. I have the money for both, and don't care (that...
