I'm looking for something to replace the default focus grip of the axisz module. Something bigger so when I twist to focus, my fingers arent so close to the laser (currently I get burned by the laser, and also dust easily gets into the lens because of the proximity of my fingers to the lens)

Where can I see a selection of alternative grips to choose from?

Bennett, punctuation. It's invented for a god-damned reason.

Anyway, scientist, what he's trying to say here is:
Mohrenberg's work:
http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/fs-3-4-focus-adapters-67428.html

Jayrob, he makes a lot of stuff, scroll down for focus adapter and custom knobs:

Or Flaminpyro, also makes incredible amounts of stuff:

Thanks for the tips. Another question:

My original glass lens seems to have condensed water droplets in the area between the two lenses - should I get a new one or is there a way to fix this?

Never seen that before... how'd you manage that?

In short, quick-drying it might help (those tricks for drying wet electronics, like bowl of rice or silica gel). If not, new lens. Rayfoss has cheapest glass lenses I know of:

Ehh, sorry? You're making some weird posts lately... :p
Just to be sure, you do still machine those focus rings I linked here? There was some talk about you quitting that in favor of finishing your schooling (which is how it should be).
What's the situation?

you can disassemble the lens and clean/dry each element. Just keep track of the order in which they go. It's a pain trying to figure it out if you don't.


I had planned to sell these lens for around $7ea....have yet to get stock of them yet.
