lol "CDbeam" on the tail. Aren't prisms harder to align than cylindrical optics?
Great! We got something going. I look forward to the comparison both in size and performance.
Haha tubes-r-us, personally I don't mind if lenses are visible. In the above design(OP) the shroud is transparent to see the goodies inside but tinted to not distract from the beam.Update: The existing proto is too short, so, I must start over. One reason to migrate to 1 1/4" rod stock OD is that a Ally tube with 1.25" ID will now slip over the main body. Would be nice to find a source of knurled 1 1/4" ID Ally tube. black anodized at 1 1/2" long !!! I'll just go to " Tubez-R-Us " hahaha. Anyone have any thoughts ????
Down with Umb....Well yes....I have thought for some time we need a " One size fits all " platform to pave the way for optical beam improvements / experiments. Now....without the cover tube, the EZ looks, errrr, aahhhh...stark, not dressed up. A cover does look good....and without a cover it looks good also, IMNSHO !!
I suppose it depends on what one likes to look at. I also suppose some may say..." I do not want all that sh#t hang'in off the business end of any handheld I own " Well fine.....but then....some diodes will just remain " Bar Generators "
That's not a bad design either. The only thing I can think of is the extra machining could cost more money but having more options for adjustments might be worth it or necessary. Right now a tesla build is taking up a lot of time and funds.Okay, great. Now back to the OP. . .
I can see having a tube thread over the
lens that the prism "shelf" would fit into,
which would allow the prisms to rotate
independently of the lens. Then a secs
screw to lock things down. It looked like
Easy eazy it is polish post
It already came out from country so I hope it will come soon. It was phisically send on 17th (on 16th it was on post) and during the weekend post doesn't work ;/
