    YouTube Channels

    I'm a huge fan of YouTube, but it's sooo much more than watching fails and cat videos. I've found a bunch of really cool channels related to the things I like, particularly science and electronics. If you're a nerd like me you'll love these. Science & Electronics: Afrotechmods YouTube -...

    C++

    UPDATE: Mmmkay so I'm pretty much done with my project, I'm now in the process of debugging. I decided to code the game Connect 4. I think it works pretty good so far, cept I know there is a bug somewhere that causes false wins. I've attached it as a zip if you wanna check it out, Windows .exe...

    For Sale: Ehgemus 800mW Build

    I've got a few thing up for sale today. First up is a 800mW 445nm Ehgemus laser built by me. This laser uses a MicroBoost set to a conservative 800mA for long runtime and cool temps, but I've seen this laser peak at over 1W on my LPM. It has a Aixiz Glass 445nm lens and a ring cap. It's a...

    List Your Favorite iOS Apps.

    A few weeks ago I got the new iPhone, it's freaking awesome BTY! But I'm new the the app store and I've only found a few apps that I like so far. What are some other cool ones you guys recommend? Most of the ones I've seen so far are really stupid and pointless. But here are the ones I like...

    Video of My High Voltage ZVS Flyback Driver

    Hello peeps. I made a video of my new ZVS driver. It's a neat little High Voltage project. I like it alot because it makes some pretty impressive arcs considering it's so simple to build. I don't usually make any videos but this was special. So I'm writing this in the hope that some of you...

    Removing A Diode Without Destroying It...

    From the moment I built my 445nm build I was skeptical that is was anywhere near 800mW at 800mA, and now I'm sure it's not. It never burned any better than my 6x blu-ray build, any now that my I've finished my LPM I've confirmed it's about the same power at my 6x. It must have been static damage...

    Electrically Conductive Grease for Threads - Anyone Try It?

    The threads on my Lucent Optics EnVee (CNI PGL-III-A) are kinda gritty and it's causing problems. I've cleansed the threads but there is a sharp edge somewhere that is grinding down the aluminum. Every time I screw it on I feel a gritty resistance and if I push through it grinds off more...

    Anamorphic Prism Beam Correctrion Optics

    I've been thinking of trying this for a few days so I want to see what you all think. The 445nm diode has different diverging coefficients for the two axis so couldn't you use anamorphic prisms to adjust the divergence of only one axis to match the second to get a round beam? This would be too...

    B&W Tek BWB-10-OEM - 473nm 10mW

    Look what came in the mail toady.:wave: It's a 10mW 473nm labby and my first 473nm laser. I must say that I am pretty impressed with the build quality. Everything looks very well made. It is regulated to operate at 10mW by a photodiode/pickoff-lens mounted on the front of the laser. However...

    FS: Pole Pig - Yup thats 14.4kv at 500mA!

    First off, sorry if we're not supposed to sell non-laser stuff but most of you guys are into HV electronics too. I don't expect this to sell right away but I just wanted to get the word out. For obvious reasons whoever buys it will have to come by and pick it up. It's like 300lbs and shipping...

    The first time you've seen a new wavelength

    The first time I ever saw 650nm I must have been a kid, I had a little dinky 5mW pointer ever since I can remember. Then in 2000 I bought my first 5mW 532nm (my fav color) at Fry's and when I first saw the color I was infatuated by it's deep saturation. Nothing that I've seen sine looked more or...

    Post Your Man-Cave

    Okay it's just my garage, but since it's never this clean pictures were taken to mark this monuments occasion. This is where I spend most of my unencumbered time, playing with my toys and building illegal things. :whistle: This is where I feel at peace with the world, building dangerous...

    AW IMR16430 CR123 LiMN Rechargeable Lithium Battery - Review & Test Results

    There has been some concern that the new 445nm diode in a CR123 host cannot be pushed to extreme currents because CR123 cells cant handle the wattage. Well that may be true for Li-ion CR123 cells. At least until they drop below ~75% charge. Their loaded voltage drops too low for the driver to...

    Weird Radiometer Burning Effect

    I was messing around with my radio meter using my LOC to make it go when I noticed something odd. I saw a very bright pale gold flash appear for a second then disappear. I realized that my laser was focusing on the black foil sail and was burning the carbon (I think it's carbon) coat on the...

    Getting your foot in the door at CPF...

    Is anyone else frustrated with CPF? I think I have like 15 or so post there. I say think because as a noob you're stripped all user CP access and can't search for your own posts. I can't start threads or post without it being reviewed by a mod. I can't send a PM to someone on that forum that I...
