G'day,

So i have a few arctics, so i decided to make a 405nm version :D

I bought a dead arctic host from a forum member a while ago, gutted it, changed the indicator led's to UV ones, i dont think they are exactly 405nm but close.

Installed a flexdrive set at 400mA with a copper heatsink, wired it all up included the smart switch led to turn on when activated too :D

its making around 450mW with a 3 element glass lens.

Here's some photos, sorry my dslr isn't setup for 405nm so it looks kinda blue.





heres a photo along side my 637nm and 445nm arctics:




Thanks for looking!

Fiddy.

Wow, Fiddy! Very interesting build! On a scale of 1-10, how difficult would you say the gutting and conversion was? I'm sorry to say that I kinda like the host..

I vote for a PL520 in one of those things, it would be the best arctic yet! I would say get it de-anodized but then it would look odd with 3 black and 1 bare coloured arctic.

If you want a bare arctic just go for the Lazerer Rifle MrCrouse Pollished up. The black ones look so much better IMO. I really love what you did with the LEDs! Not only that, but do I spy specific colored Orings in the fins? Gotta say I am jealous. This is a beautiful sexy laser, +1!
