    First Labby help needed

    yes youre right, ~1A current going through a resistor would quickly add to a lot of dissipated heat :cryyy: i had a look over the data sheet for the lm78XX series, useful stuff to know so thanks for bringing those to my attention. i think your second suggestion is the way for me to go being the...

    Test load arrived today, even with my amateur soldering skills it looks beautiful and neat on the PCB :D works just as expected too, thanks man :)

    First Labby help needed

    thankyou for the quick response, i think i understand what you mean about the diode, taking the path of least resistance, it would then return any stray current back to the cathode end of the fan rather than the driver, correct? The fan is a Sunon (sleeve type?) i was using the wire just...

    First Labby help needed

    I am preparing to build my first labby but was hoping some of the more experienced on this forum could check for any errors or red flags i might have missed :thinking: attached is the circuit diagram i have constructed, which lead to a few questions, but first i will give a detailed component...

    DIY build questions

    woops didnt see your reply there sorry! like i said, i wasnt really thinking when i said 5mins. would a 30sec runtime still need a heatsink? yes DTR is looking like my savior at the moment!

    DIY build questions

    sorry i wasnt really thinking when i said 5minutes, which is actually a fairly long time :crackup: 30seconds should do just fine but i will also position a fan onto it for extra cooling. i have been looking into a test load from this thread...

    DIY build questions

    thanks for the quick reply! okay i shall stay away from used diodes and those that look like cheap china knockoffs etc ;) I like the look of DTR's stock and after looking through his threads i think this will be a more suitable diode...

    Hello from AUS

    yes lucky for me australia has weird laws that allow importing components but not completed builds. i finished my first build yesterday which was a simple 5mW pointer but now i want to move onto bigger and better stuff! thankyou for the warm welcome

    DIY build questions

    hey all im new to the forum so hopefully this post doesnt infuriate too much. im undertaking my first high powered build (having previously made a 5mW laser) and im worried about sourcing parts online. 1) this is the diode i am considering: 1W Blue Laser Diode to 18 5 6mm 445nm | eBay for the...
