Well my idea of "exploiting" the market would be doing a detailed build thread and pointing potential buyers to it as a form of advertising.There sure is a corner market but builder's tend to get greedy and hustle the uninformed that don't realize how cheap a laser diode or phaser build in general can be. There is some fab time though but by the time your on your 2nd build you have an idea or two and can learn from mistakes.
You don't see them post sales here for that reason other than Jayrob who puts it all on the line as to what he doe's and basicly charges half of what others do that just throw in a diode and run with it.
Oh yes this topic is getting old "not this thread" and has bean mentioned plenty but I just remembered seeing a sale thread from around 2012 when someone was selling a AA phaser and mentioned he was the only one who found this "secret" to have the laser flashing to the sound setting. All he did was splice into the original LED wiring that did just that.
His "secret" was it was easy and he did nothing.
Member Shadowsix has done a few Klingon Distruptor builds and quite a few more different builds. He sure has a nice signature so try to take a look
I contacted him via Ebay and he gave basic tips about removing the fins and nozzle and provided the pics.Nice to see you started:beer:
Good that you saved the nozzle and rear fins whether you end up using them or not.
So no screws just bonded plastic.
Did Jon Paul personally give you a heads up or did you watch his U tube vid's?
Anyway's can't wait for the next step or finished build
Nice, the Klingon's better watch out now! :gj:Nice housing. I started with a plastic replica and
machined all the laser stuff to fit it. Mine still has the
I used a logic level Mosfet as my 2+ amp current
supply (switch) from two 14500 cells in parallel.
Thanks for the offer but I'm only working with a couple mm of room next to the existing guts.Can you use one of these http://www.fasttech.com/products/0/10093/2189000-kw12-3-125v-5a-micro-limit-open-close-switch-w
The 24mm height is measured from the top of the roller for some reason which the whole metal arm can easily come off if needed, so the actual height of the body is close to 10mm.
Iv'e used these on my Diamond Select and Rubies phasers, so maby its worth a shot?
I can send you couple to play with so you won't have to wait 3 weeks. Its something to play with anyways..
I'm seeing jon lussier u tubes video's and lately he's been pretty generous with showing the insides of his builds.Thanks for the offer but I'm only working with a couple mm of room next to the existing guts.
I will probably fab my own direct contact switch out of some thin copper glued to the existing trigger button and the housing on the inside of the Phaser.
Sometimes the simplest solutions are best.
