    65807 Can't help but chuckle at the irony. After years of joking about being "probably on a list for...", here I am putting myself onto one willingly. Cheers!

    What kind of new laser toys or projects are you all working on?

    This reminds me of something I saw recently posted by an acquaintance (initials CRS) who some work I'm particularly fond of with 405nm and glow in the dark screens. Any connection?

    What kind of new laser toys or projects are you all working on?

    Most recently, a friend gave me a pretty awesome gift. For a number of years, he ran a sound/lighting business in and around the town where we live. Circumstances necessitated selling off most of the equipment and finding another line of work. Of that equipment, he had a few 3W RGB scanners, one...

    Sea Sick Green 1W 525nm Build

    Hey thanks , I appreciate it. Ordering components to put together a few more soon, but haven't decided on which diodes I want to use yet

    Sea Sick Green 1W 525nm Build

    Right on, did you post a build thread? I'd enjoy checking it out. Also I realize I'll probably take some flack for commenting on a thread that's this old, but I wanted to share an update on this build that I thought was pretty cool. So my last post was back after I got married. We were about...

    Sea Sick Green 1W 525nm Build

    Hey man, sorry I hadn't replied yet. It's been hectic since getting married recently and I'm just now circling back to lpf again now that I have some free time again. To be honest, the perceived difference between 510 and 525 isnt huge in my opinion, but a lot more pronounced than 532 to 525...

    I bought a NUGM03 525nm 1w doide from DTR And need to know some things

    Good choice on the NUGM03 for a beastly direct green. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with on your first build. For what it's worth, my first direct green build was also with the NUGM03 just a couple months back, which I posted HERE. I wish I still had the finished handheld, but the...

    Sharp GH04W10A2GC 350mW 405nm

    I've been extremely satisfied with the beam quality of this sharp diode running on about 1.6A. After a few people asking me to confirm my preference for the 3E lens, I went back and swapped the 3E on mine out for a new G2. Now take this with a grain of salt as it's 100% subjective and not...

    Shpongle & Tipper at Red Rocks next weekend?

    Much appreciated! We've been pretty excited, but also extremely relieved to have finally gotten through the knot tying portion lol.

    Shpongle & Tipper at Red Rocks next weekend?

    I've been through Denver only a few times going snowboarding, but never during the warmer months. Pretty excited about red rocks too as I've never been there before, only seen shows there via YouTube.

    Shpongle & Tipper at Red Rocks next weekend?

    So first off I have some exciting news to share. My lovely lady and tied the knot today! The plan is to work until Wednesday, and then drive from Missouri to Denver for the final Shpongle show at red rocks. I figured I'd see if anyone else was planning to attend and if y'all had any...

    Sharp GH04W10A2GC 350mW 405nm

    Yes it is, very much so. Here it is next to one of the smaller 445nm pens with the same 1.4W output that I posted a while back. Also this is without vapor in the air.

    Sharp GH04W10A2GC 350mW 405nm

    Lol perfect timing! I actually just finished a build with one of these today.

    Sea Sick Green 1W 525nm Build

    Yeah I've got a couple of the G8 lenses at this point. Don't get me wrong, the beams from the G8 look great. In this case though, I think it was the tighter line of the 3E that appealed most to me. I may have to compare again this weekend, and maybe try a G2 as well.

    Sea Sick Green 1W 525nm Build

    I hate to be "that guy" but someone is bound to say it if I don't. This would be a great time to familiarize yourself with the search bar and see if you can find that information within the forums. There's a wealth of information there, just waiting to be found. De-canning is a subject that has...

    Sea Sick Green 1W 525nm Build

    Hey man, thanks for the input, I appreciate it! This stainless host is referred to as the C6. This is the 18650 size, but there's a 14500/AA version as well. If you haven't seen a 1W green in person, or really anything north of 500mw, you're in for a real treat. It's unreal just how bright they...

    Sea Sick Green 1W 525nm Build

    Reloader45, you're actually right on the money with your questions. De-canned means the ball lens is removed along with the metal sleeve (can) that it's mounted to. This allows it to be collimated with your choice of lens, such as the G2, DTR-G8, or 3E (3 element AR coated). While you can use...
