I am not doubting T's modules he is well respected here and he has all my blessings.
And no I am not asking to much only because I asked to see how much thread is needed to accomplish the FL on the G8 lens alone.
As we all know the g8 lens has a tendency to focus out with only a few treads...
To see the focusing distance compared to the amount of threads being used with the 12mm module. It would be nice to make a video of how it will work under normal conditions in a hand held unit. Thats why I asked about a simple test at 15FT and further out.
It just nice to see how it works...
I dont understand so excuse me for that. The topic says spring boards is that a contact board or a driver with a 17mm or 20mm diameter .
Because if its a contact board Mountain electronics sells 20mm contact boards and also you can go to Osh Park site and send them a CAD and they will...
That is not true sorry the ball lens diodes seat and press in a AiXiz 12mm copper module very well. I have done this a number of times with no issues. The only down side is we cant use a collimating lens to focus the beam. Then we must decan the diode to accomplish that.
I was only stating that the lens seats deeper thats a plus, instead of hanging on by two threads. But I would like to see the dot at about 15Ft. or so. This is a great addition to the G8 focal point.
Today is a day to remember all the folks that have fallen due to the twin towers 9/11 . Give a hats off to all the emergencey EMT's Police and Firefighters that gave their lives on this day.
I was just trying something different and practical. I ordered some G8 lenses to test it and then modify it better. I woke at 1:30am with the idea off the top of my head and went down to the shop while it was still fresh. It would be no problem to mod a 12mm copper module on the lathe...
