    Mini Laser CNC

    I just finished a little 2 axis laser etcher of sorts. It uses sleds from dvd drives and is controlled by an Arduino. I am by no means a good programmer so the code that controls it is more than likely horribily ineffecient, but i am happy that it works. So far ive made three different...

    DIY Beam Expander

    Here is my attempt a your basic beam expander. The whole thing consists of just two double concave lenses and a dichro. All three of these optics have been taken from an A140 projector. The laser is an Aixiz 50mW labby, with which i have removed the final lense from and in its placed...

    SSY-1 YAG Laser Build

    Originally my SSY-1 was being powered by some disposable camera flash circuits and capacitors. While that does work i wanted to have something that takes a lot less time to charge. So i rebuilt it with a ZVS driver powering a rewound transformer for my main charger. Ionizing the lamp is...

    My first 635nm laser

    Im a littlle late to the game, but i finally got my first 635nm. Its based off the 300mW diode and driven at 700mA from two AMC7135 regulators. The host comes from focalprice and was originally a green laser that had rather poor stability. At $16 i had no problem ripping it apart for the host...

    Looking for CNI style laser

    Im not sure if "CNI" style is entirely correct but its what ive known them as. The laser more specifically is the the 2AAA pen host with glossy black finish and gold accents. Dragonlasers sells them as the "Viper" and Novalasers call theirs the "X-Series." But im not too keen on spending...

    Diode Torture >:D

    I just happened to notice that one of my 445s had a loose window, so i figured it would be a good opportunity to decan and submerge it. The water i used for this was nothing fancy just regular tap water. Power was provided by my modded PSU and the diode was driven by my variable driver...

    Flash Lamp Problem

    Ive returned to my SSY-1 laser head after finally making a good capacitor charger, the only problem now is that the flash lamp won't light! The lamp is hooked up to 510v at 400uF and the trigger circuit is making a visible blue glow inside the lamp's glass but it refuses to dazzle me with a...

    445nm RadioShack Laser (PICS)

    Alright, before you all explode on the thought of RS carrying a 445, rest assured they don't :D Back in January i posted a thread on how i converted one of their green lasers into a red, using one of those tricky 3.6mm diodes, now i have converted another one of these into a 445. The laser...

    Attempted Labby (PICS)

    The title says "attempted" because the resultant laser is far from i deal but i thought i would go ahead and share it with you guys. The heasink is a from a CRT monitor i tore apart, it orginally had mofset or some kind of transitor mounted to it, it made a great place to attach the LM317 i...

    Surefire Laser (PICS)

    I converted my trusty L4 Surefire into a 445 laser. It was originally an LED flashlight so i was able to make use of the internal driver. The original driver was putting out 930mA so i figured i would leave it be and just hook up the diode. Heatsinking isn't the best with regards to the...

    Casio Projector used as a projector?

    These new 445nm diodes have stirred up quite a frenzy and a number of them have been dismantled in the pursuit of this hobby, BUT has anyone hooked up one of these projectors to something and see how it performs as a projector? On another note, does anyone think it would be possible to remove...

    Whats this font?

    I have had my Ipod Touch jailbroken for quite sometime and i was messing with the system fonts when i noticed a cool font on the loading screen when you open Fontswap. The first pic is of the load screen and the second picture is one that i have cropped to show the font of interest. The...

    330V Flash Capacitor Question

    If i were to wire two of these flash caps in series and them apply 600~660V to them would they charge equally? That is, will each of the caps charge to 300~330V. I know that in rechargable battery packs where rechargable cells are wired in series and charged in series, each of the cells take...

    Radio Shack green goes red! (PICS)

    Using the pen host from Radio Shacks' green laser pointer, i put together a nice red pen laser. The driver is a trimmed down AMC7135 350mA driver and the host uses the usual 2AAA's it was made for. The diode is a LOC from a 22X burner and the module is capped of with a AR coated glass lens...

    White Laser Build

    I had built this laser sometime ago, not too long after some of the first "7 Color Lasers" started appearing. I was very impressed by these builds and thought i would have a go at it myself. The idea seemed simply enough, but getting it all to come together in the end proved to be a fun an...

    Pico Projector Inquiry

    Earlier this year the "Pico Projetor" was release and there were some threads started concerning it an its laser internals. I've done several LPF searches and it never seemed to go past just taking about it, i didn't find any threads where someone actually got a hold of one and examined it. If...

    SSY-1 creates pattern on CD (PICS)

    While messing around with my laser head, i decided to see what it would do to the highly reflective side of a CD (i know, high powered laser, reflective surface, what could go wrong! :P). Well, much to my surprise it blasted a nice clean hole through the shiny foil, leaving be hind a nice clean...

    My smallest BR yet! (PICS)

    I know for a fact that this build isn't the smallest BR to grace this forum, but it is the smallest BR that i have ever made, so needless to say i'm quite proud of myself :D The host was originally an INOVA LED flashlight which was powered off of a single AA cell. It now uses a B0323 diode...

    Xbox 360 Mods (PICS)

    Okay, first off, i don't want this thread to become a war over which console, 360 or PS3, is better i simply would like to post pics of my console in the hopes that others may do the same and show us what you got. If you have a modded 360 or PS3 post it here, i'd like to see them. My console...

    Rock Windowsill Glows in the Dark! (PICS)

    So it was getting a little late, and not want to go to bed i decided to pick up one on my br lasers and shine it around the room. I shined it at the usually bright plastics and watched them glow , but just i was putting it away on my windowsill i bumped the button while flipping the laser...
