    New drivers by me testing and suggestions thread.

    Giannis_TDM Just a little note about round vs square drivers. DO what you want but consider this. Many of those making requests for round drivers are from newer members only on a few months. It might serve you well to Go with what the veterans are asking for first. They have been on here a...

    a bridge may may work better than a bride would. she may get angry and brides don't handle that much heat very well.

    Build a $10 burning laser

    As mentioned, any cheap housing that will work, the lens or any of the LED part isn't needed as the AixiZ Module is what holds the lens and diode for the laser.

    Continuous wave?

    All excellent points, but the one I think you missed was also the price. You can build a very nice lower power laser pointer, in most colors, for much less than the cost of the high power AND without the added cost and additional issues with chopping the power back. Its not usually worth the...

    Can I repurpose a cheap Ebay laser, to use it as a host? (My FIRST POST... yay!)

    Googles, Good Eyes, Good Blind, Bad. 0 = \ X = / Laser Pirate - Good? Bad? Indifferent? Argggh! I guess Laser Ninjas are better!

    Can I repurpose a cheap Ebay laser, to use it as a host? (My FIRST POST... yay!)

    You can more easily use flashlight hosts to replace parts with laser diodes than using laser hosts and swapping parts. Try fasttech.com for some at dirt cheap prices - but the ones that work best, are usually not the 18650 bodies unless you machine a heatsink for it. The Triple "A" or 10440...

    Not trying to be mean, you have a valid point suggesting they introduce themselves first and you post that on every member who doesn't. I don't know my exact wording, but it should have been, "hakzaw does not it like when members do not first post in the welcome section". That was the intended...

    Can’t run my DTR driver when the battery is in the case

    3 probable possibilities already stated! BUT without at least knowing the color and type of diode its impossible to tell. With that driver it could be a lot of different diode combinations. 1.as stated it could be a non-neutral case diode 2.as stated it could be a battery connection 3.could be...

    haksawz doesn't like new members that don't post in the welcome section first. What are you looking for, I may be able to point you in the right direction. Do you have laser goggles? Needed if you are working with anything in the 10s, 100s or 1000s or mw. So you don't burn up your eyeballs.

    Driving a pre-made module from DTR's Laser shop?

    If this is the one you have: https://sites.google.com/site/dtrslasershop/home/diodes/sharp-gh04850b2g-55mw DTRs' website, tells you; you drive it with 2.5-6.0v and something that will handle over 1A current. Read the heading for the one you bought. Which means any SINGLE decent quality 18650...

    Sale thread/ Hosts/Heat Sinks/Focus adapters/lasers

    Thank you for the pics, always nice to have again - I appreciate that. Locking the aixiz lens like that is great idea. I had seen something in the past with a couple steel rulers and an enclosure also, sticks in the back of my head. Just trying to get ideas, I just picked up a 10x expander...

    What is this? O_____O

    Not sure, but with the wiring like it is and not knowing, I would definitely have someone else in the room nearby just in case you light up, especially if it is some form of a leiden jar. Wish you the best.

    Rich do you have anything that works with the nubm044 and the 6x lenses from the group buy? Looking to have something to tame the beast - lab or handheld

    My sharp GH05C01A9G build.

    Nice to see someone using this diode and the results

    What is this? O_____O

    looks like something along the lines of the old violet wands and shock therapy. Just add to that a container of mercury, some opium and a bottle of Dr Clark Stanleys' miracle tonic and you have a one man road show medical team. Will cure syphilis, warts, toothaches, woman fevers and grow hair...

    CAREFUL------Watch out on the newer 32650 batteries. Many of them are now 3.2v not 3.7v. Only place I have found 32650 batteries that are decent, are the Feilongs on Ebay. Which I use in my jayrob flashlight. IMHO, stay away from the Trustfire brand. Although I haven't tried their 32650, all...

    Space Discussion Thread

    I strongly disagree. Intelligent life comes from intelligent life. violating that you violate every law in the universe. Systems do not tend toward order, systems left on their own, tend toward chaos. Basic science/chemistry book quoted below: "Second Law of Thermodynamics states that all...
