**FINAL EDIT?**
STOP -- ALTO -- NO MAS -- CEASE -- DESIST

We did it!!!!!!

YOU ALL ROCK!!!


**RE-EDIT**
We are off to the races again
Several members want to go ahead and try to get IgorT a second diode. So we are ON again. Any donation is a good donation. If you do not already have my PayPal, send me a PM. Also there has been a question about Google Check-Out I can invoice you through Google Check-Out. When you PM, give me your Google address.

************************************************************

A couple of people have asked for this

IgorT needs to kill an 8X diode to see what it can do so we ALL can know how hard we can push these safely.

I would love to donate this, but I really cannot afford it alone.

The total of what I paid for a used LG BH08 + PayPal fees + shipping is $175. We need $175 to pay the "hit man."

What say you Goodly Fellows (and Ladies)? Doth we hire the brave knight to slay the dragon for us? Or do we continue to feed the dragon small amounts of current to assauge our fear of provoking it?

Post here.

If you do not already have my PayPal address, send me a PM.

Peace,
dave

I'll cover one diode, if people donate 50%....

I'll kill it on my cycler cct at 300mW CW, to find if it can survive 100h+ at 1min duty cycle.

I was merely sayign that and average would be better.
Maybe some shop owners that are actually making money could donate a diode each.

Unforunatelly i don't make much money latelly, i'm broke... :(

I have $300 USD. I need to get one diode for killing, one for myself, one for Glenn for all the help he gave me.



Dave: Thank you for doing this! I should have done it myself, but i only proposed the idea.


Guys, i'll have three diodes here at once. I'll pick the "freaks" for lasers, and test the lowest efficiency one, altho from what i can tell they are VERY CONSISTENT!


The lowest efficiency will be set to freak power, and killed on my "Cycler Circuit TM".. :evil:


Lowest efficiency live shortest lives, so we will know freaks will live longer!

We just need to establish the MINIMUM...


Guys, i recently spent $250 on diode tests,
before that $1000 on lens tests, which all current lenses are based on.

This is money i will never see again, and i'm OK with it.


But now i can't afford to kill a diode without some help...

ANY donation is HELPFUL even if it's ONLY $5-10 USD, if it comes from 15 people!

Right, people need to send YOU the munneyz...

Since you got the drives!

So.. Basically there is a way of sending money with PP with only a 1% fee..

If PERSONAL is selected for the reason.
If you select "Money owed" and write "Here is the money i owed you" in the message.

PP usually allows you a 1% fee, and Dave gets more money (all of it)....
No fees are applied to him, to you a minimal one!


A $10 USD donation would cost you $10.1!

You don't understand the hobby very well yet, do you?

HEY!! Anybody out there actually "making money"?

Or at least more than you need to support your own laser habit?

Peace,
dave

No I dont, I am completely ignorant to the hobby but im sure I will catch on.

But If lets say Dark Lasers donates a diode for the cause it would be good showing on their part , and maybe help sales on his shop? Kind of the way that some companies sponsor products or people.
As my grandmother used to say --

"From your mouth to God's ears"

Peace,
dave

P.S. A fancy looking banner ad does NOT equal a significant profit for the busness

I'm not going to post names. If you want others to know you donated (and/or how much) you will have to post that info.

Thanks you two

Only need $145 now

Peace,
dave

DarkLaser donate a diode? :evil:
It's too much for one person, we have to do this as a FORUM!


I do hope Dark pitches in..

you really dont realize that theres not much money to be made running these shops do you...with everyone trying to undercut each other and members always complaining about lower prices the "shop owners" make very little to no profit off the items we sell. i personaaly dont make jack off sled sales. its the specialized items that i carry thats the only way i make any money and theres still very little of that. thank jake21("mr. undercutter") and yourselves for that. any money i make now from the shop is going to pay my bills b/c like jayrob i lost my job recently and cant afford to donate...
