Which I don't really like. Either sell them, post schematics or at least IC info so other people can make their own, or be quiet about them. :tsk:


First off dont tell me what to do.

I can careless what your Opinion is.

I posted what was in my laser, others asked if they can buy it i said no not now or iam unsure.


How was that teasing because a Noob wanted to crack a Joke that is banned now.

I answered eytyxhs question and sole him. Which He is a Very very good friend of mine.

Go work hard and build something then post everything you did.

GO drill Dr. Lava for his Schematics.

Get of my case dude your starting to annoy me.

Iam one of the nicest guys on the forum and it seems you are out to get me for some reason.

Next time i will report you.!!!!

Leave me alone.!

Id definately be interested in a few of your X-drives if you choose to sell them. ;)

If you don't care, why'd you bother replying to me?

And go ahead and 'report' me.. whatever that means. Also lose the attitude and read what I posted. There's no need for Dr Lava's schematics. If I want one of his drivers, I'll buy one. He's not doing the equivalent of going 'nyah nyah nyah look what I have, it's bad ass but nobody else can have one, but i'll keep talking about it and telling how great it is anyway' like you are.

So it goes back to what I originally said. Either sell them, help other people make their own, or be quiet about them if you have no intentions of doing either of the other two.

This is DIY forum after all, and the whole 'You can't have one but i'll keep bragging anyway' attitude contributes absolutely nothing here.

I replyed because iam tired of your crap.!!! As well as to leave me alone.

This is the first thread i even mentioned this driver to this extent so how am i going around as you call it 'nyah nyah nyah look what I have, it's bad ass but nobody else can have one, but i'll keep talking about it and telling how great it is anyway'. Sure you can go out and by his driver but when he first came out with it you dint see people post comments like you have. Maybe i do want to sell it maybe its something i want to think about which is clear in this thread. If you stopped trying to think negative you would see that just like everyone else has.

THe way you come off guy every time you say something to me is disrespectful and i dont not like it.! I dont need you telling me what i should do. If I want to sell share i will. I dont need your opinion on what i should do. I clearly stated above that I might sell some dont know yet. If you consider this bragging or showing off then you are truly are holding something against me and are acting childish. You are the only one that has comment like this to wards me. I dont need your Approval to post something.

Dont you even thinking about going there. I have shared Lots of information and builds on this forum. So dont act like i have not.


Iam Just tired of your crap dude. Seriously Get off my back. when i say report you i think you know what that means. Iam not some punk like kid that you can push over. You have been given me a hard time from way back and you know what iam talking about.

DROP IT and leave me alone. Stop fallowing my posts threads because obviously you have nothing good to say.

Go your way i go my way done its over. Iam Not going to argue with you because it pointless and its a waste of my time because obviously you only "try" to find the bad in people which there is none here.

Edit:

You where actually one of my favorite forum members here. I always enjoyed reading your posts but now the way you have been acting towards me changes my look at you.

Feel what ever you want about me. -rep me. I don't really care. However when people come here flaunting things they have no intention of sharing only so they can go 'HEY LOOK AT ME' then I'm going to speak up about it regardless of who they are. I don't care if it's daguin doing it, i'll still call them out on it.

Go ahead and complain to the mods about my posts. I went back and looked through them all and I fail to see how I attacked anything but your decision to flaunt a driver you likely well knew a lot of people would want without any intention to do more than brag about it. And last I checked, having differing opinions wasn't against this forum's TOS.

This forum has has enough troubles with the influx the arctic has brought. It doesn't really need useful members 'd*ck waving' as I call it as well. If everybody here was selfish, then this place would have died a long time ago.

First off i dint - Rep you. Second I never said i was going to report you because of your post but to leave me alone if you continue to make false statements.

Your way in life at always looking for the bad is getting a head of you. You cant tell good people from bad people anymore.
What dont you understand iam not bragging and none of my post show that.

THis is the freaking first thread i ever even showed a picture of the driver so how and i bragging.

Your picking on me and i think i know why and so do you. If you want to talk about it PM me. Iam Down to talk through it but stop continuing picking on me because iam not going to let it happen anymore.
Bragging would be opening a thread saying hey look at my driver and not share information what so ever. Then saying iam keeping it for myself.

THis a build thread Not hey look at my driver iam bragging.

Look at it closer man NO ONE IS BRAGGING.

I just dint know what i want to do with it because i just made it. THis is the first thread i ever posted it in.
SO if iam unsure what i want to do why would i share right now.

Ive shared so much on this forum. You accuse me of something in another thread now this.
Come on guy. You have nothing better to do. Your the only one that sees it that way.


Read the post above i just said i got my board in today. Witch means this project just moved from prototype to making boards.
You need to change the way you look at things.


Iam Nothing but a good member here. I do my part and it shows. I cant make you all happy.

Other have warned me about this and i new i should have listened.:/

Ok, but let me explain where i'm coming from then.

You are correct you didn't start a thread to specifically talk about your driver, However you brought it up in your OP, even showing a picture of the driver, Plus it's mentioned in the title, so clearly you wanted it noticed and people to see it. And as expected, the conversation for most of the thread was about the driver.

Starting with you describing it's capabilities.

Which was then followed by a clear declaration that you wouldn't sell them.

Is this driver for sale?
Then you ignored my question about schematics, which, coupled with your photoshopping off the markings on the IC in your picture, indicates you not wanting to share your design as well.

Then after that you talked about more capabilities of this driver that you demonstrated that you had no intention of letting anyone else have.. To me that constitutes bragging.

I never claimed not to be an a-hole. However i'm an honest one. I call things like I see them. And this is how I saw this.

I'd personally like to just see you sell them. Good inexpensive drivers, especially with modes, are what the laser community is short on. And i'm actually working on my own designs for boost and buck drivers, but that's an entirely different form factor.. Namely 17mm discs for use in my sipiks since the NJG-18's have vanished. However in the production quantities they'll end up made in, they won't be any cheaper than micro flexdrives when they do finally happen, which will likely be months.

Yes I wanted it Noticed as iam proud of it. Just Like I make everything else i build Notice. Especially when i do detail tutorials or Polish a host.

Iam Noticed for doing good to this forum not bad. You make me seem to be a bad person. I only get this from you. Yes your honest whatever so am i but come on man you never did this.Yes the IC Is Covers because as I stated iam Un sure what i wanted to do with them. But you got it wrong. No Photo shop thats how the picture was from the beginning. The IC is acutely scratched off.

They asked more details on the driver and gave them without basically giving everything away. Thats how it usually works when you are unsure what you want to do.Your Honest might be true but its at the wrong place at the wrong time. Iam Clearly telling you iam not bragging. No one else saw it this way but YOU. WHY.?

Yes I first said "No, Sorry" but after that i got about 4pm's from people wanting to get one. SO when Ethyex asked today i gave a NEW ANSWER. My mind changed. I cant go back in time and change the NO Sorry because i already said it at that particular moment.If I was Not going to sell the driver for sure i would have posted everything when i felt like it. Not Made to post the Stuff.

Trust me when i say this no matter the way you see it that was Not my Intentions. I was not bragging.There is Little i could talk about this build other then the driver. SO I dont understand.Ive given quit of few of these away already so you dont know the whole story but what you see on the open forum.Like I said Iam not a little Kid that got a New toy and say mine mine mine.If you want to call it the way you see it go right ahead i cant stop you, But know that other that do know me see it the right way.

When iam ready to make a decision what i want to do i will make it. Ive already contacted a few people that asked me for one in the order i was asked.

THis is what i mean by you only see half the store and accusing someone of acting a certain way is not right.

It is an Efficient diode but not the best one Ive got or have.;) Ive got one right now that does 2.2W at 1.8A with a G1. I also Had another one that did 2.3W and the phone rang and i reached over to grab it and i seen that the lanyard on the host was Caught on something that as on my lap and down it went. Killed the diode.:( Only if you new how upset i was and still am. It was the best diode i have ever gotten ever.

My diodes are usually hand Picked.:cool:

Iam glad you like the build. Its a very Nice laser now. "Beat that Wicked":crackup:

A little on the Driver.

Name Of My Driver is: X-Drive V6
Its a Buck.
Pot adjustable and can be set for different ranges. Right now its at 100mA - 2A "2000mA"
Can go up to 2.3A MAX
Anything under 1.8A does not need heatsink. At 1.81A and up it should be heatsink by placing a small Piece of aluminum over the IC.
Efficiency- only drops ~ 30mA at 1.8A over a 5 minute ON time.

:thanks:
Did you answer the phone in the end I think is what we are all wondering. :D

Yes I did answer the phone and did not expect the laser would be dead after the fall. When i went to turn it back on it was LED.:(

It was a very sad Moment. Anyone that Kills a diode like that would be extremely and I mean EXTREMELY Upset.

I still have not found a replacement for it.:(

The search is still going to find one like that. But most diodes i found are 100mW+ away from 2.3W with the G1 lens.

DTR broke the 2.3W Power the other day. EPIC.:wave:

As nice as it is to have +2W / 2.3W coming from a FREAK diode like this, i'd err on the side of caution and dumb it down a bit. IT will one of these days just go pop on you.
Keep a measurement over time to see if there is any drop in the output, log the time etc etc... This might help others in seeing how far they can push their 445nm builds.

I must say I really like your build. I'd too like to know what you are using as a driver circuit!
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

Nice work my friend.. Personalizing all your parts takes time and pays off
in the long run.. You are getting good at this :D

Remember, there is an ignore list for those who cant take 'no' for an answer :shhh:

Keep up the good work :beer:

I Have 5 >2W builds and built more then 5 for people over the past. Not one of those have any issue with degrading.

These >2W diodes with the G1 lens are hand picked diode with the best efficiency. Only a couple in each Projector.

My first 2W build which is over 6 mouths old is used every day just about for a Minimum of a couple to a few minutes and sometimes even more.

None of my >2W have showed any Signs of damage.

I have had High efficient diodes Die on me, But that is Usually within the first few seconds to a minute. But never in a laser that i put together as only the best of the best are used in 2W builds and al diodes that are not able to withstand that are not used.

The main thing is choosing the RIGHT diode to use and you will be Fine.:)

Thanks Buddy.:beer: Yea i love this laser. Low Pulsed mode is my favorite believe it or not. Especially in Fog. Its Like A Portable beam scanner if you move it really fast back & forth.

Wait until you see my next Project.:eg: Not a Laser but iam sure you will like it.:san:
