Stun I like that, it would be cool to add a LPC diode in there to operate with the 445 when in stun mode :beer:

Man that would be tricky... Remember that there is only one EzFocus tip for the exit aperture:










GAH! So cool!

EDIT: I just had a brilliant idea for this build, by the way.... What if you added a switch that added in an additional 4-5 ohms in resistance in the driver...? Then you could SET YOUR PHASERS TO STUN!!! :O
Hmmm...

Not a bad idea to experiment with maybe. But I'm thinking that if I have two levels of power to choose from, just how often would I choose the low power??

I'm thinking I would leave it on high power! :D

You may leave it on high power, but for showy effects and just extra nerdy points, you can always "set your phaser to stun" if you want to use it indoors, or just to get some laughs.

They would both have to come out of the same aperture so some mirrors or a pbs cube is going to have to go in there.

That's what I mean by 'tricky'...

The lens threads into that EzFocus adapter for focusing. Which would have to be done away with I guess in a dual mod. :thinking:

What I meant was, I like that phrase! "Extra nerdy points" Made me laugh... :)

I got a hot build from Jayrob back in 2010 and it is still going strong. I added a red LED under the silver plate right after I got it (used the extra grey wires) and at night it looks great when firing.

I am interested in getting a phaser hot kit. I was curious how much it would be and how difficult it would be to install the diode. Given that I have never soldered anything before.

It's really easy...

I'll message you with links to proper eye protection, soldering video, etc... :beer:

Hello, I just joined today. I saw your post from 5 years ago and couldnt believe my eyes. This laser is absolutely breath-taking. Is there any chance that you are still building these lasers? I would love to buy one
