Re: Custom $1000 589 laser

Incredible BBB! :) What a good job. +rep from me. :beer:

Also, if want to estimate the beam specs such as the divergence then just measure the beam (B dia1&2) at two specific distances (d1&2). It is best to use a vernier to measure the spot. Then use this equation:
(B dia2 [mm] - B dia1 [mm])/(d2 [m] - d1 [m])=Divergence [mRad]
Oh thanks buddy, thanks for the info also!

Re: Custom $1000 589 laser

Thanks Alaskan!

I'm afraid I cannot help in that department, I can say it's not as tight as a 532 dpss laser but it's not far off either,

I can't help with calculations sorry!

I'm using its original collimation lens so it should be very similar to most PGL or Spartans NO!
Makes sense it isn't as tight as 532 at a longer wavelength, greater divergence goes hand in hand with that, or were you referring to beam width?

Awesome stuff, first time I've seen a 589nm laser in a custom host. Looking on it now the yellow contrasts very nicely with the silver colour. Nice build!!

Yikes! 6K, addicted to internet and lasers both. So, what's next? PBS cube combine the outputs of two modules? Double the cost plus, but so much more yellow too.

Here's what Adam said guys!

Hi Bill,

Very nice housing, perfect. I think maybe you can make some sales of the housing.
If any of the forum member is interested he can buy laser module from us and the housing from you.
The only difficulty is that maybe not everyone is good at assembling. How difficult to assemble that?

Best Regards

Adam

I'm not sure what ever comes to mind,
I have been wanting to combine 2 or 3 405s for a very powerful handheld, or maybe a pink or cyan handheld, possibilities are endless, love this hobby!

Re: Custom $1000 589 laser

Wow. $1000 for the module that's expensive as hell!!

*is that USD or Aud?

and nice looking host.

if you don't mind could i borrow your design to make a custom 589 like your's?

i'll make mind out of copper though so your's can remain as "one of a kind".


if you ever make more custom DPSS wavelength could you do a build Tutorial video?

it would fit well into the tutorial session along with Styropyro's video....

and the LPF Chanel if there's going to be one...

Your welcome Bill. :beer:

Also very interesting, you could end up making lasers in partnership with DL. :bowdown:
Good luck. :)

Planck, i'm guessing AUD and I'm also hoping it is as well. :D It's £200 more for USD. :p

Re: Custom $1000 589 laser

Yes Australian dollars,
I don't sell any of my custom builds the module was about $700 and since the host is custom, built very well and one of a kind and because I needed a thread title I figured $1000 is very close to the mark!

Sure!
It's only $200 to copy my design - just kidding!

Wouldn't you want yours to be a one of a kind!

Re: Custom $1000 589 laser

£600 for a custom host 589 is not too unreasonable considering that the DL Spartan is around £400 nowadays.
Yes, definitely update your sig, as you now have a very unique and special laser in your collection. ;)
And your new avatar pic is really nice to look at. :beer:

Edit: Just seen that you have updated your sig.

That looks amazing. Great host and great beam shot.
