8x Drive Mini "GB" - DONE

THIS Mini-GB is now CLOSED!


Guys, this is in relation to the 8x MURDER fund for our 8x experiments, to figure out how much they are ACTUALLY capable of!

We already purchased TWO 8x diodes for the MURDER experiment, through the fundraiser! The two already on their way to me!


But this thread here is meant for ordering 8x drives, so we can get them cheaper, by ordering more at once (if possible even without sales-tax), and also sharing the shipping cost!

EDIT: At this moment, we can usually get LG 8x drives for $175, but there are several possibilities that could/should allow us to lower this
cost! Several of us are working on this...

EDIT 2: The current time-limited special offer price is $168.51 per LG 8x Drive (Shipping AND PayPal fees INCLUDED - $159.99 for drive itself)



I would plot them ALL on my Diode Analyzer equipment (aka "OmniDrive TM"), select the weakest two for the MURDER experiment and put them to death on my Cycler Circuit!



Anyone wanting for an 8x drive for themselves (like if you don't have the tools to plot/measure your diode, but do know how to assemble a laser safelly yet want it plotted) or an 8x build from me - or anyone else for that matter - can ask for an 8x here!

The more diodes we plot before the experiment, the more we will learn about them, and the weakest efficiencies will really be the lowest we can find! (used for establishing minimums in survivability)...


We will also try to arrange for the lowest diode price possible, share the shipping cost and then we'll even be able to "cherry-pick" (well almost) the diodes for our lazores.. :drool:

Everyone will also get a full printed hi-res PIV plot of their diode!



It's just an idea for now, but PLEASE post your interest here, let me know your thoughts or wishes, and we'll just take it from there..


Igor

I can't wait for my Kryton 8x from IgorT!

Am I not on the list? I'm still waiting for an email from you buddy.

I would recommend my new copper heatsink option for an 8X build in my Pocket Mini...

The kit with the copper heatsink upgrade, is $51 plus shipping. So you can PM Igor about building it with a diode, driver, and module. Of course, his building skills too!

How much are the 8x sleds ????
The 8x sleds are $175 USD OR LESS!

I'm working on reducing the cost with the help of ordering them to a US address outside of CA - to Bryce!



Bryce: I'm sorry, man, i forgot, fixing the list now! (It was just an example list :angel:)!

Cool. I'm running around my house looking for stuff to sell! Might see a few things on here in a few days.

Well, in the interest of getting more diodes into the test-pool, i'm gonna reduce the price of my work!

If you get all the parts for a Kit (or go with one of my v2 or v3 models), and go with a FlexDrive (if a FlexDrive can power them! i'll stabilize it as much as possible of course!) the cost will be reduced A LOT (see FlexDrive DISCOUNT - for now it's still cheaper than my driver, but hopefully not for long!)...

But buyers of 8x lazores, in one of Jay's many flawless Kits of my "Classic" with v3 Heatsink/Module, or whatever host YOU want (like Bryce's Kryton), please email me for build cost details, and i will give you a price for your build, ok?


For now we just get the 8x DRIVES, and kits/parts, a few people will hopefully pay up the whole price, which will help with the Custom Lens fund!

Actualy, Bryce was first... :evil:

I bumped you "down" because you came to the "pool" after Bryce..

Altho the logistics are still to be figured out between Dave and Bryce..


This is just informative - to see how many people WOULD be interested with the diode costing $175 or less (hopefully)...

The diode we are going for is the LG 8x, or the Pioneer BDR-203 (if we can find a good offer for it - Dark said he would try to get a quantity discount?!?)....



EDIT: Oh, and yes, i did spell your name wrong like five times while prepping the thread, then i went looking and spelt it wrong one last time.. :angel:

Is it good now? :yabbem:

175$?!

Then there's the host/heatsink/driver.... Even batteries... lol

Kinda high for me but I'm thinking about it.

If I can get enough $, I'd love to get one of your custom lenses. I have to say that right now, my favorite is the aixiz 405, but I'd love to try yours!
