I keep forgetting to post a review for this awesome laser by Dave :D. Without further ado, I continue.

I recently saw Dave selling a 6x kyrton for $225. Let's calculate the cost of materials:
55 = sled
27 = driver
80 (?) = Kryton
20 = Battery and charger.
182 = Total.

The profit he's making less than the amount of a sled (which I would blow), so I went ahead and bought it. Little to my knowledge that he would include extra gifts, trinkets, and doo-dads. (8mW Red, case for Kryton, and two uranium marbles!)

The laser I bought is amazing. Burns through anything in sight, fluoresces all of my minerals with more intensity than a blacklight would, visible beam in the dark, and everything else a laser of that power could do.

10/10!
My image of the laser shows the anodization as it is in real life. It is not a hot pink, as previous pictures showed. It is a deep violet puple color, as seen in my picture. [highlight]Actually, on second comparison, the real life specimen is still darker.[/highlight]

I will post any poses or beamshots requested.

Allow me to make this 100% clear: I am a VERY happy customer! I will do business again whenever I get the chance ;).

Krytons are 60, and the driver is included in that price. Anyways, you got a good deal I think

Yeah, but we can swap out additional costs in there as well for those items. (shipping, packaging, PayPal, case, etc.)

Peace,
dave

Yeah, but I'm 100% sure this is a lava drive which I am 99% sure is another 27/30.

EDIT:

"...and [highlight]$25[/highlight] for any marble or fade effect. The barrel itself with all the required goodies to work minus a diode and batteries is [highlight]$50[/highlight]"

80 bucks was a close estimate.

Here's a picture of the driver attached the the kryton head.



I'm sure he added the glue/grease/whatever-that-is to avoid the issues if and when customers start to play with the pot or bend the driver.

Doesn't hurt it anyways, so I'm fine with it.

Look like Mr.Teacher  used his [highlight]famous Frog juice,[/highlight] im sure you remind that one.

;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Y'all are cracking me up tonight -- Thanks  :)

It is "high temp" hot glue.  If you heat up the head enough to melt that stuff, you need to buy a labby ;)

Peace,

Speaking of which, what is the duty cycle for these? I haven't really been trying hard to follow one, but I never run it for over 2 minutes max.

We haven't really established that yet.  However, I believe, if you follow the duty cycle you described above, you will never have any problems with this laser

Peace,

I thought I read that elsewhere on this forum. But it was an old post. Thanks for the info (and the laser ::))

Actually this particular Kryton was $80.  $55 for the Kryton (shipping included) and $25 for the polished anodizing.  That price did NOT include the flex drive.  The flex was $18 on top of that cost. Now that is if this particular flex was purchased with this barrel. I do not know for sure. It is however irrelevant as it's still a great laser and worth well over $300

Nice review! I just ordered his last 200mW Kryton build. I'll have to keep coming back here to satisfy my excitement until mine arrives. :)

You got my last Kryton Groove laser.  I still have two 200mW Kryton Smooth lasers available

The Smooth barrels are the original (and more rare) barrels

Just had to add to the thread - I recieved my 2-tone 6X from Dave yesterday, and as always, the build is impeccable and the laser is just plain perfect in every way.

I snapped a ton of beamshots last night before the show, here's one of my favorites (the other 2 lasers are a dilda running 3.6v CR2's and the green is a FP pen style putting out just over 100mW)
