Thanks to LPF, flaminpyro and jayrob. I have built my first laser.:)

It's a LPC diode running at 412ma, using the rckstr driver. This is set in a jayrob MXDL 4171.

I got to use my diode press and test load from Flaminpyro.
Thanks Flaminpyro!

For this module, I copied a build, Mohrenberg did for me.
I used a small spring at the bottom of the aixiz module. Separated by a rubber washer, for the positive input. The aixiz module is case negative.

I had jayrob remove the pill on his host, so it was just a big empty tube.
With the way I built my module. I did have to sand the paint of the lip of the host, where the heatsink fits. To allow a return path for the negative.
You cant see this because it is hidden under the heatsink.

I built my module this way. So that they are completely interchangeable. I can swap it out with the GGW build Mohrenberg did for me. Or any future module that I build. Plus if it ever dies I can just slide a new one in.

I had so much fun doing this. I think I'm going to like building them, more then playing with them.:D

Thanks LPF

Matt -- your CAPS (Shift) button isn't working on your keyboard.

your computer does not seem to output CAPITAL letters in the sentenses normally found in the american printed language and it is likely a bad shift key preventing this from happening so you may want to check this out.
