Just finished this, I’m not able to post pics right know, I wish peaple who develop apps on the apple store keep them updated, So here is a video for now, Brass looked so good man, And with a 2 Element AR coated lens the divergence on this 488 diode is better than a dpss laser, Latching switch on back momentary on side using a 14500 battery,

I let the buyer do a review if he likes, Thanks!

I think Bob's still got the edge on me Tero, hehehe.
Yes, Billy has done a magnificent job on this.
I'm so excited.
But hey, there's a new section of the Southern Museum that's now dedicated to you too Tero!!!
I'm also excited about your fantastic builds too buddy.

Billy, I'm still at work so I'm going to have a good look when I get home.
Excellent work my friend.

No rush mate all good, I’ve been thinking on the design-shape for this one a while and what I come up with looks awsome, I don’t think I could have improved it anymore.
It’s perfect size too with a nice bit of Weight.

Thanks for the comments all!

Interesting about the divergence, and also no square in the output, beautiful build in every part!!

Thanks buddy,
Yes same diode, it deserved a custom housing, divergence is ok with an acrilc also but the 2 element is just outstanding!

Noice! Another impeccable build.

Forgive me if this info is somewhere on LPF, did a search but did not find a build thread.. but can you tell me about the host in your video (Custom 477nm..), specifically how the LED voltage display was so well integrated in to the unit? This thing fell off the "Dope as Sh1t" tree and hit every branch. https://youtu.be/wjyP8vxcvL0

EDIT-

Nevermind, I found the build thread at https://laserpointerforums.com/f39/custom-477nm-volt-panel-nano-boost-sold-101279.html ... not sure how I missed that the first time I searched.
