    Pictures I Took of Laser Beams

    These are wallpaper/screens saver/lock screen quality! Very impressive display indeed. Every light scatter, reflection and deviation seem to materialize and shoot out of my phone screen. It truly shows the effort that was taken to set up Thank you so much for sharing lew

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

    Ahhh this hobby is so bad for my wallet... I have a few convoy s2+ custom flashlights that I've always thought how the host would make a nice laser... Ive just bought a host and the sanwu pocket series from another thread... Self restraint is hard

    Pen Laser Thread

    Thanks Rich :) it was hard to see it go but it was a quick build as a gift for a friend who also appreciates lasers. I believe the diode was a sharp 505 nm that I bought on eBay. It never ran hot even after a few minutes of it being on. Love the mint color, I do miss it so much I might buy...

    Here's something I build as a 2018 Christmas gift to a friend, to keep the thread alive this year and keep it going. I love pen build like this myself so if anyone has more to share let's seem em :)

    Hi Rich, that is one beautiful looking host! I wonder who the lucky owner of this beauty will be πŸ˜‰ I wasn't sure how the blue and copper would look together but I see that it makes an awesome combination! Superb craftsmanship

    Looking To Buy An Osram PLT5 488NM 5.6mm Laser Diode

    Very well said my friend! I also noticed a finer but more color sensed beam with the half thread 3 element lense on the 488nm and the 515nm diodes

    Looking To Buy An Osram PLT5 488NM 5.6mm Laser Diode

    I tried a few 3 element glass lenses and a few acrylics and found one 3 element glass where it's nor as noticeable as with the rest

    Where to buy low power 445-450nm laser with push button - 5mw-50mw

    Any beam pics? I'd love to see the beam and dot profile

    How does one build a custom laser pointer?

    Hahaha Thanks I thought it was just me that couldn't find any. I want to make it look good and small so it doesn't take much space. I have heatsinks that we're salvaged from power tool batteries that I can add and also fans if it comes to using that as well to keep it stable in a small package...

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

    Thanks Rich, i belive I bought my diodes from DTRs ebay store, I still need to get drivers for them and as for the host. I want the copper sink and aluminum tube. What are the prices on a full copper host? Or should I send you a PM? I believe I'm ready to own a legendary Rich host 😎 I do want to...

    How does one build a custom laser pointer?

    What are the specifics for components? I want to build an smd type that has the header pins with a jumper as a selectable voltage drop thingy.. Or if it's easier to use through hole components, are the diodes just regular rectifiers? 1ohm 1% tolerance 10w resistor is needed?

    Green 200mW ~510nm my mini first mod

    That's OK so it work as long as a 10440 fits the host which can make it any flashlight that uses AAA alkalines. As for the host I'm using. The diodes are set at low powers so the modules do not warm at all, it's possible that the host gets warmer when I hold it in my hand than when it's running...

    Green 200mW ~510nm my mini first mod

    I love small builds like this! What was the host you used? And the driver? What battery fits in this host? So many questions.. I've built a laser out of the lumintop tool AAA myself but Its hard to find this flashlight in copper to make more lasers out of Edit: I just closely had a look to see...

    Tool AAA host. Maybe?

    Update! Now with a 488nm diode in my favorite edc host, finally got some good quality batteries for it too. My favorite laser pointer that I've modified so far is the copper tool AAA
