    Fs: CUSTOM LASER HOSTS, NEW HOSTS ADDED TODAY 1/10/16

    Thanks, That's good to know. I use a diamond thermal compound that I make myself with 50% silver heat sink compound and 50% diamond powder by weight. It is a very fine grit. Using synthetic diamond powder makes it extremely thermally conductive. Very interesting. Have you tested it to compare...

    Fs: CUSTOM LASER HOSTS, NEW HOSTS ADDED TODAY 1/10/16

    Nice. Here is the one I built with the NDG7475 in it. I believe it was 1.5 or 1.6 watts. It was crazy bright. The focus adapter lit up so brightly that you can't see the beam in some pictures. Lol. Ehgemus is the man. "][/URL] "][/URL] "][/URL]

    PERMANENT THREAD: Ebay& other internet FINDS of interest- read all the OP please sub

    Re: PERMANENT THREAD: Ebay& other internet FINDS of interest- read all the OP please Mayyyybe. Lol. I had a guy asking me for one, but he hasn't been responding for the past day or two. Let me check this new one out this weekend, and I will let you know. The sensor looks absolutely flawless...

    USB Portable Powerful 12W Custom LPM

    Good luck. I don't think anyone has been able to get a response on this for a long time. I messaged about it a long time ago, as did several others. I think it's safe to assume it never came to fruition, otherwise I would think he would be trying to make some money on this.

    Re: PERMANENT THREAD: Ebay& other internet FINDS of interest- read all the OP please $200usd! I paid $200 for my first one, which was confirmed spot-on accurate before purchase, and came with meter, power cable, sensor without shroud or stand, and sensor cable. The second one, I paid $45 for...

    Re: PERMANENT THREAD: Ebay& other internet FINDS of interest- read all the OP please Negative. Those would be the NDG700. I just went through my texts because I remember talking to him about buying a 700 diode from him. He said he runs them at 2.5A and gets 1.4W out of them. By the way, did...

    NUBM07E 465nm 2.9W Diode Test (Hitting 470nm+)

    Do check the driver. I have had a few SXDs mysteriously quit. They were heatsinked well, just like the at least 25 other ones I've built with 4A or 4.5A SXDs. No clue what happened with them.

    7 Watt NUBM44 MX900 Build

    I just found some 25Rs for a great price on another site a few days ago. Gotta back track to see where it was.

    7 Watt NUBM44 MX900 Build

    I did not. I guess it doesn't give me email notifications when I receive visitor messages. Private messages are best. But let me go check for it right quick.

    NUBM44 6W+ 450nm Laser Diode

    Exactly what I was thinking. I knew that heatsinking the inductor was a no-no, but I couldn't remember exactly why. That's why I originally asked about heatsinking this driver because on the component side, the inductor sticks up much higher than all other components.

    NUBM07E 465nm 2.9W Diode Test (Hitting 470nm+)

    I only use full copper modules unless I absolutely can't. They seem to provide much better thermal transfer, and they allow me to pull the module out a little in some of my builds to provide easier access to the focus adapter while losing only negligible amounts of heat dissipation. What type...

    NUBM44 6W+ 450nm Laser Diode

    Nice. It looks a little big for my application, but it looks to be a solid driver.

    NUBM44 6W+ 450nm Laser Diode

    It's already heatsinked in that very small space, no chance of doing anything with it now. I didn't touch the range resistors. I don't believe it's one I got from you because almost all of the SXDs I've gotten from you have been fixed current for a while now. It might be a replacement Lazeerer...

    NUGM01T Kryton Groove

    It gets warm pretty quickly being a little over 10 watts in an all-aluminum host. I would keep duty cycles on this one around 45 seconds max. I've already sent it to him. I used a 17mm contact board. I put a very small spring on bottom so the batteries wouldn't put too much upward pressure on...

    NUBM44 6W+ 450nm Laser Diode

    No, it wouldn't go up OR down. Lol. I actually didn't want it that high, but that one hit 7.79 watts, so I was alright with it. I don't use a standard test load for these. I use a 100 watt 1 ohm resistor when going over 3A or so. I don't think I can get them out without damaging them, as they...

    NUBM44 6W+ 450nm Laser Diode

    I am always looking to see what I might have done wrong, and have no problem openly admitting fault, regardless of how dumb the mistake was. Lol. But I can't see anything at all that I could have done differently with any of the ones that failed or otherwise acted up. That does look like a...

    NUGM01T Kryton Groove

    Hello again, friends. I've been absolutely swamped with work lately, so I haven't had any time at all to post any builds. Here's one that a guy requested recently. It's an NUGM01T in a Kryton Groove I got from BudgetBeams.com. I went with a 2.4A X-Drive from DTR. I will upload power results...
