    OPT Lasers Cylindric lenses - NUBM44 beam correction tests

    I received my 6x pair from Opt Lasers. Using the 6x pair by itself gave me a decent spot from a NUBM44. I tried combining a 6x with a 4x from LSP but 24x was a bit too much. I could not get a spot regardless of lens position. Just an ugly line and lots of splash. I might purchase a 3x from...

    OPT Lasers Cylindric lenses - NUBM44 beam correction tests

    Hello all, I have been monitoring this thread off and on for some time now. I have a 4x lens pair from Lasershow Parts that I have been experimenting with using a NUBM44 diode. I just purchased a 6x pair from OPT Lasers and will be experimenting with that pair as well as combinations of the...

    Nichia NUBM44 in L2 Host

    Here is my latest... a Nichia NUBM44 at ~6.8 watts housed in a Solar Force L2 host via a custom heat sink module from JayRob. This one was a pain in the butt to build as I had to undo a lot of Jordan's beautiful solder connections to install the module and driver into the heat sink module. I...

    Glow Forge

    Hi all, I was distracted one day by an ad for the Glow Forge 3D laser printer so I went to their site and while looking at the specs I saw it used what was described as a 10,600nm 40 watt CO2 laser to do the cutting. My question is does a 10,600nm wavelength exist or is that a misprint?

    Hi Jay, Are you still making the L2P heatsinks? If so, I would like one to the following specs...

    Hi Jay, Are you still making the L2P heatsinks? If so, I would like one to the following specs: heatsink (v5 thermal glued version) EZ Focus adapter (smooth)

    The dangers of lasers

    Well, today turned out to be an unfortunate day. I left my newly built 462nm 2 watt laser in the center console of my car while I was eating. Sometime during my dinner the inner part of my laser's end cap popped loose and closed the circuit thus putting my laser in a constant on position. The...

    NDB7A75 w ball lens - $120 shipped on eBay

    I've removed several of the stock projector lenses from their holders. A two hour alcohol bath (ethyl) makes the job much easier. The alcohol will soften the glue and all that is needed after that is some careful work with pliers. I use two pairs and grasp on each side of the lens holder and...

    Can it be true? 70W laser diode?

    Since it's in the IR band.... maybe....

    The amazing M-140 445nm diode?

    I just hope the stock of these new diodes stays around. I had to sell off most of my laser collection so I could pay bills :-( So next year I am going to build a new 445 once my tax return comes in...

    My Upgraded 12x 405

    I am a little less careful since I can get these things for $52 shipped from Rayfoss... better than the old days of buying a $200 drive :D

    Are reasonably priced 12x's really that hard to find?

    Hi Cad602, if the BDR-S06J is the same diode from the LG 10x Blu-ray writer then I can say it will easily handle around 550mA as long as it is properly cooled. I had one running at 575mA producing 750mW before I upgraded the diode to a BW512. I still have the original diode if anyone wants it.

    My Upgraded 12x 405

    Hi all, I just recently finished upgrading my old 10x 405 to a new BW512 405. I'm pretty impressed with the results: 847mW @ 575mA Here's my equipment list: SolarForce L2P host Jayrob SolaForce heatsink Aixiz module 405-G-1 lens Microboost driver Samsung ICR 18650 battery I used a LaserBee...

    Are reasonably priced 12x's really that hard to find?

    I've been getting my 405s from Rayfoss lately. The last one I received was this one www.rayfoss.com It produces over 830mW with 546mA from a Microboost driver.

    Lava Micro FlexDrive Driver (lavadrive2) fits pens

    Yay, the order page shows "In stock"!!! I just ordered one FlexDrive and one MicroBoost driver. Hopefully the "In stock" is not just a cruel joke... LOL.

    637nm HL63133DG Build

    I thought there were issues using the Flex drives with these diodes because they are case positive... I'm probably mistaken but I could have sworn I read that somewhere. I hope the diode does work fine with that driver because I have an extra FlexDrive that I was going to use for a red build...

    832mw 405 (BW512L)

    Thanks danefex! I told him the 405s don't usually live very long at that power but he seems ok knowing it may die alot sooner than his previous one. I hardly ever use my lasers so they usually last a long time. I just like to see how strong I can make 'em :D

    832mw 405 (BW512L)

    Wow, this little guy really surprised me! This is a pic of the power reading for a laser I fixed for a friend of mine. This 405 is built in a Dorcy Jr host and originally used a diode from store bought Pioneer 12x Blu-ray writer with a FlexDrive v5. He managed to burn the diode out after...

    What were they thinking?

    Maybe he's hoping one of his video's ends up on Tosh.0 or something... anywho, I seriously hope no one actaully tries to 'reflect' a laser off their eye because of this video.
