I haven't been here for a long time! I don't know if any of the old guys are even here anymore.

Anyway, looking to put together a 445 laser right now. I have a case and everything for it, but what are some good resources available for diodes, moduals, drivers, things like that.

Welcome back to the forum rathat. I vaguely remember that name from when I used to just browse the forum. There are a few old timers still posting on here.
We have so many new diodes available to us now. Including cheap cyans. There are also now cheap lime green/yellow dpss's available to us. :)

Off topic, but that felt good taking an old member from a rep power of just 10 to 100K+. :p

Welcome back, rathat! :beer:
Seven years is a long time, there are a lot of new affordable wavelengths available, as Encap has mentioned, DTR's site is the place to start your search. :yh:
There are still a few of the old timers around, and some others that just pop back in from time to time.

@Curtis, that's funny, you just gave out more +rep at once than in 10 previous years!

Welcome back, rathat. Man have you got some catching up to do. Things are much different than they were 7 years ago. Depending on what you are looking for, the chances are good that you will find it now. :yh:

Rathat in 2010 had 10 rep power. He has now got an extra 241534 in one day. :p
Now an extra 405,881 extra.

It's possible he could get 1,000,000 in a day :crackup:

Would certainly be a peerless/nonpareil Welcome Back -- unrivaled and beyond any prior LPF welcome back

Four of us with over 10 million rep points have repped him so far today. A few others have too. That is quite a welcome back.

I would say so....now 8 senior members with 10 million + have given him Welcome Back +reps which is an unheard of never done before hearty high rep Welcome Back.

If rathat checks in before another 7 years and recognizes that his rep level of 10 has gone up a bit perhaps he will become a contributing returning member.

Perhaps. It remains to be seen. I did rep him at your request, Encap, so I hope you are right. ;)
