Has anyone found a source for the switch spacers for the Kryton Smooth barrels?
I need four of them
17mm OD x 10mm ID x 4.8mm tall
If no one has them, maybe someone can machine them for me?
I have one last 2W+ 9mm 445nm full kit left
These come with the Kryton Groove host. They are 9mm hosts.
They are complete, new hosts with the focus adapter.
These are lightly anodized to cut down on fingerprints etc.
You will have to wire brush the contact points and threads ;)
I went through the parts drawer and found something to help someone get started as a builder without breaking their bank account ;)
I have here the parts (minus host, battery & diode) to build 20 @ 1W 445nm lases in a C-6 host (not included)
Included in this batch are:
20 @ aluminum heat...
I have only six (6) kits left.
I will take $400 for all six and cover domestic shipping.
We will work out a discount on international shipping
Otherwise, I will still sell ones and twos
OK. Well, it looks like no one is ready to start up a business.
I'll switch over to...

You just enjoy the forum
After rocketing into deep space and passing its initial tests, the Kepler telescope began its search for planets around other stars on May 12, 2009.
Engineers designed the spacecraft to last four years, and apparently the warranty has expired.
Last Sunday, four years to the day after science...
IF YOU JUST LOOK AT THIS AND DECIDE IT IS TOO LONG TO READ, YOU HAVE ALREADY FAILED
Recently a member asked me to explain the "culture" of LPF
Not understanding the culture of the forum is the basis of many of the conflicts with NooB's
In explaining it to the member, I hit upon an analogy that...
The question comes up fairly regularly asking how one can estimate the output (mW) of a laser based on comparing it to other lasers or by what it can burn
Unfortunately, what it "looks like" to you (or anyone else) or how well it burns something is almost meaningless
How may mW would you...
In Singapore, lasers which have an output of greater than 5mW are illegal
The government of Singapore is carefully protecting its citizens from these dangerous lasers.
HOWEVER . . . . .
Apparently lasers which have an output of greater than 5mW are really only dangerous for poor people...
