    My Blueray just died!

    Just thought I'd share that my blueray diode from the Dr. Lava group buy just died. I built the 7805 circuit that Rog was using and set mine to 37ma with DX RCR123 batts. It lasted for about 5 minutes before it died and man was it beautiful! I feel very sad right now as I had just finished the...

    DIY Aluminum Housing - Finished

    Here is my completed aluminum housing for my DIY GB red diode I just received from SenKat. It is standard aluminum tubing from Lowes and has standard plumbing fixtures for end cap and front aperture. It uses 2 CR2 lithium cells and also uses the standard DDL driver circuit found on the forum. I...

    My son Jeffrey with the fog machine

    My son loves lasers just as mush as I do 8-) Sometimes I will let him play with the low powered pointers I have. I have taught him to be safe with the lasers though and he does very well. Here he is playing with a 5mW 635nm Atlasnova pointer and the fog machine. He loves the fog machine as much...

    Homebrew Housing #2 - Aluminum for CR2s

    I tried to find some parts to make a housing for CR123a batteries and almost had it! No go though...for now. Here's what I got to offer right now... How about an aluminum housing for two 3 volt CR2s? If there is interest in this setup I will continue on with the build. Here is a picture of what...

    Copper Homebrew Housing for Axiz 635nm

    Here is the attempt at a housing I've been promising to make for my new Axiz 635nm module I purchased. This is a first draft so it's not exactly the way I want it yet, but it works. It is made from copper plumbing parts from Lowes and one 6mW 635nm module from Aixiz. I snagged the micro switch...

    Single AA Flashlight Battery Substitutions?

    Does anyone know if 2 CR123a or 2 CR2 batteries are similar in size to one AA? I was wondering if I could substitute 2 CR123a's or 2 CR2's for a single AA in one of the DX flashlights. That way I could build a regulation circuit for 7.2volts. I've compared several pictures from the DX website...

    Did I screw up bidding on these goggles?

    I knew to avoid the seller ZoneStealth on ebay so I didn't even look at his auction. I found this seller seling these 650nm goggles and made an offer of $35...

    My attempt at a DVD burner Red

    Here is my cobbled together attempt at a DIY DVD burner red. I think I half destroyed this thing getting it from the burner though. I dented the front of the diode but it still works. I had a 100ohm pot inthis circuit but the diode would barely lase so I took it out andjust have the 2 10 ohm...

    Just bought an Aixiz 635nm 10mW Module

    Just ordered an Aixiz 635nm 10mW module. I want to work on a simple nice looking housing for it then do a review on the module. If I get something together that works well and looks decent I will post up a howto on it so others can follow. I expect it may take a week or so to get the module...

    An idiot with a laser!

    Ahhh...I'm such an idiot! I don't have my NOVA goggles yet, but I can't stand not playing with this thing! Last night I was popping some light colored baloons with sharpied "targets" on them and I caught one heck of a reflection right in my eyes! My blink response probably saved my eyes and the...

    My opinion of Wicked Lasers

    I have a thread over in the red lasers forum called "Another Wicked Lasers victum" (I can't post links yet.) discussing my dealings with Wicked Lasers. I should have posted that thread here, but I was new to the forum. So, I just wanted to add a place holder here for those new folks that may...

    Another Wicked Lasers Victim!

    I wish I would have found this forum before being suckered into purchasing a wicked lasers pulsar 100. I read all of the info on their site and decided to invest money which I don't really have into something I thought was so cool I had to have one. This morning, excited about my purchase, I...
