Different and looks great after polishing. Thanks for sharing it
whoa thanks man! so would it be possible to do the same thing but instead of using the LM317 transistor and resistor, could you just buy a microboost drive?Parts:
Bullet of course
S06j module - https://sites.google.com/site/dtrlpf/home/diodes/s06j-12x-405-diodes
LM317 current regulator
I used a 2.6 ohm resistor for on aouput of 480mA
Yeah it makes a great addition and being rather large militaria collector it fits in well with the rest of my collection.Bit low on what power should be but it makes up for it in looks and being possibly unique ..Yeah, Blaster ended up owning it haha. It LPMd at around 270mW @ ~450mA after a problem with shitty batteries lol but it still is underperforming. I never ended up covering the button, i thought it resembled a primer slightly and TBH i never got the spare time to do it And it is an honor for me to hear you say "I apreciate that this was all done with basic tools"! You are the king of laser DIY :worthy:
Off topic... Are you better now, i heard that you were unwell?
Many thanks Josh :beer:
Good to hear you're getting better While you may not think you deserve any credit, you have invented alot of very simple yet effective ways of DIYing lasers. EG: focusable ebay pen (i did it yesterday). Anyways i HATE hospital and i'd always do whatever i can to NOT be in hospital haha. The smell just makes me feel like crap.I think people give me too much credit Lol I have always been good at figuring things out for whatever reason and I don't give up trying to find solutions for problems. I try to look around at the things I already have and will "fight it out" with myself to make things work.
You did the same thing when you tackled this project.
My mind doesn't like to turn off so it's always working on things.
I am going to be off from work for a couple more weeks still which isn't so great $ wise but it's better than ending up back in the hospital
