This is pretty simple guys.
If you have ever removed the optics from a laser then shined the "flashlight beam" around you are 99% of the way there.
If you have notice the sharp shadows it cast and made some shadows you are 99.99% of the way there.
Do you have a can of "air duster"?
Well after two years procrastinating/deciding if I was sure I went ahead with it.
I have at least 6 years of GI Bill, but they have gone to 8 for Veterans after Dr.

I'm looking for a 22A 4V driver. (2 26650s as power source)
A small driver with the ability to use an external adjustable pot (as blackbuck M8) would be great.
Any designs for such a driver would also be useful.
First a shout out to DTR and his
2W 470nm+ C6 20mm Overdrive Special for inspiring this build as well as the 20mm module assembly.
Also kudos to Survival Laser and their fast shipping and helpful customer service.
Also sorry for the low quality pics, I have yet to invest in a good...
I want to upgrade the software (unlock code) to the 6 watt (Ag) version.
I want to get the non-coated version of the sensor and any software needed to upgrade to the 20 Watt version.
I would also like to learn more about the data logger and start using it.

I contacted Opt Lasers about getting just that fantastic mini mount with mirrors. They said they would send me one for about $200
I'm basing this build idea on perceived brightness.

Nearest I can tell, is this Stirling Engine should be putting out about 6v and at least 0.03 ... amps.
I think that would push an efficient diode/driver combo to about 10mW or so.
It would show from the discovery of fire, thermal to mechanical, mechanical to electrical and electrical to...
Yep. Since everything is going so smooth with my Phaser build, and I plan to get one of Rick Trents 7w units I'm thinking of my next build.
I have been playing with this idea a while.
The new blue/blue Dichro works on such a narrow spectrum that binned/sorted NUBM44s can be combined.
I read a thread about combining two NUBM08 of slight variation using a blue/blue dichro.
This got me thinking about trying the same with a pair of NUBM44s.
2 pairs of NUBM44s PBSed x 2 dichroed and you have up to 28-30 watts all on the NUMB44 beam profile.
Add a beam expander and you could...

I was wondering what you guys think this diode might top out at.
I'm considering PBS combining 2 then using a Dichro to add a visible light beam (probably from NUBM44).
