    BMW X5 Laser Headlight unknown strange diode

    So I thought this may be of interest to some, I extracted this diode from a 2022 BMW X5 laser headlight that was damaged in a collision, oddly this is the only laser present in the headlight the rest of the lighting is LED. As this headlight is over 5000 dollars new, getting more of these may be...

    Fog machines

    Its fine, Ill debate it all week. You would be right that vapor is not thick smoke because technically its not, however what comes out of a hookah is a very dense vaporized white cloud of molasses and tobacco. Which in turn would be vaporized oil's sugars and other compounds and is exactly how a...

    Fog machines

    Mine is actually a hookah, it uses indirect heat to vaporize shisha, the bowl is actually a hookah bowl, it has a tower in the middle that the coal sits on and a trough for the shisha. I only use it for shisha, not weed, mainly because its illegal and i have a job that drug tests. If i had the...

    Fog machines

    What?! Hookahs are the best! It is a DIY hookah because you can buy the bowls and hoses for 4 dollars each, the mason jar, copper pipe, and fittings were free. Typical mini-hookah is $40+ and they typically dont hit worth a damn. DIY hits like a champ even with several inches of water.

    Md. Police: Pilots Facing More Danger From Lasers

    I am in much agreement with LtKernelPanic, in my opinion they should instantly add a law restricting the sale of any complete laser >/= 3mw to 18 years of age, just like a BB gun, and no complete laser >/= 100mw should be allow to be sold without a safety training permit that could be completed...

    Fog machines

    Rofl, you're not alone with smoke instead of fog. However this is my method. With it i can fill a house with smoke in like 5 minutes, nice thick smoke and no cigarette smell, usually smells like whatever flavor i have. In this case its white grape. :)

    Microboost Solder Job Question

    I agree, soldering braid really help especially for big globs but sometimes it will suck out too much solder and you loose your bridge. The best thing for bridging on the SMD's is a gel or liquid rosin flux from an applicator and to use solder that contains no additional flux. Apply the flux to...
