Click here link to full album on my fb site

So very close to functionality, I can taste the brass shavings now.
By no means am I near finished, but it's a long term project, between finding parts as they come, and learning my way around the shop.


M140 axiz @2w long distance 3 element Lense (dtr)
2x AA sized li ion.
Note the last, most recent pic. I had to make a focusing assembly mount to the axiz module so I could locate it in the bulk of the heatsink, mid gun. I have plans for the barrel design that won't allow it out there... and a bunch of other reasons justifying it.

EDIT: Pics below \/ \/ \/ \/

It used to be a pneumatic screwdriver of sorts. An odd tool at that.
Milled out grip to fit battery pack.
El wire and blinky lights are a later project.
Lots more machining to do for aesthetics.

Looking good! Five years in the making, that's dedication. Best wishes for the rest of the build. Be looking for it :)

Backburner project coming along. Now 100% functional!
not finished by far, but usable none the less.

guitar knob is just there because it fits the dial switch on the back.
considering using a different style knob if i find the right one :)








Internal focusing assembly, keeps module back in the bulk of the heatsink.
heatsink will be whittled down for style later, holes added to external housing aka "heat shielding"
I would like to add a small thermoswitch cutoff inline with the laser at some point...


battery compartment and block, pre shaping
