THE "DOUBLE TAKE"
Here is a simple and elegantly designed Ehgemus host build, which at first glance appears to be a solid titanium beauty, but upon further examination, is a solid aluminum bodied host wearing a slick looking outer sleeve of titanium tubing!
This build is basically just a plug-n-play type unit, as are many of Ehgemus's hosts; solder two wires and you're ready to lase away.
Although this was a simple build, it was nearly 6 months in the making.
I built this with one of the 515nm diodes obtained from the 515nm G.B. last year.
This diode is well traveled, after a couple of trips back and forth from Israel, and a lot of frequent flier miles, I had all but given up hope of seeing my package delivered, then one day in November it appeared ...finally time to finish the build!
Components used for this build:
- Titanium Host/Ehgemus
- Osram 30mW 515nm Diode/Eitan -G.B.
- 3.8mm Copper Module/DTR
- Lazeerer Mini X-Boost Driver set at 246mA/Lazeerer
- Panasonic 18650 NCR18650B Battery
Power output as checked on my LPM.
- G-2 = 81mW
- G-0 = 83.7mW
- Acrylic = 70.5mW
Finally, here are a few photos of the build, and a couple of obligatory beam shots!
Seems awfully small to hold up the whole show!
I placed a few plastic spacers in front of the lens to give me a little more room to grasp the focus adapter.
That's all for folks, thank you for looking! :yh:
