Thats interesting , because i read a post by C0ld himself stating that anyone that feels a thread should be stickied to just pm him and he will do it.

did you get my lenses by the way?

Thanks

he states "stickies are almost always created based on someone asking me for it to be a sticky"

Refurbished into "no spring" brass assemblies.

Packed and shipped with your 5 Sanyo lith-ion batteries.

Of course, I do have the bare lenses available.

They are only $28.95 ea. in quantities of three.

I gave you a low price on the lens assembly changeovers.

Flaminpyro tested 5 different lens assemblies yesterday in this thread.

The "no spring" lens produced the highest 6X BR power increase in his 5-Lens test:

Aixiz acrilic..........Aixiz glass...........Aixiz 405.............JayRob...........LarryDFW
118mw...............104mw..............141mw...... ........172mw...........174mw


Photo by Flaminpyro - the Aixiz glass output seems lower than I would expect...,
but I have seen 2 different AR coatings on these lenses.

nice keyboard there Larry...


Well i got the 3 converted glass assemblies. . they are incredible..

I dont mean to offend Jayrob , he has spectacular products , but I really think you have "one up" on him with these brass assemblies. the operation is smooth. as far as the actual lens , im happy with the Jayrob as well as the LDFW lens.. but if you must have the best i would say the brass "NO SPRING" option is the best and its very affordable.

Im still going to buy the 3 bare lenses from you, very soon.

Thanks again Larry.

Thanks for the side-by-side evaluation.

I appreciate your assessment of the lenses.

Misterwilling has done some very precise machine work on the brass housings.

He can also harvest your Panasonic 8X,
and assemble it in his new heatsink-machined host.

Wow it's cool you guys collaborate to get the perfect fit. LMK if Misterwilling gets a larger host with a bigger heatsink. If the Kryton Beasts never appear I want something beefy when 12x Diodes come out :)

When you work with a machinist on a multitude of parts ...

you find out how accurate the tolerances are, that he maintains.

It does help of course, that he is a laser hobbiest.

BrewCityMusic;

Your Hi-Power lens assembly and your #18650 batteries are shipping tomorrow.

That new 8X will be smoking.

I'm waiting on another 8X LD to go into a new Hard-Anodized build.

Re: FS: Hi Power AR Lens - 25-30% Increase vs. Aixiz

Just a note, I recieved the lens and while my 8X isn't done yet, it took my 6X from 209mW to 262mW ... It should be noted though that the length of these lens assemblies makes for a REAL tight fit in a Kryton host, meaning to focus a nice dot to "infinity" you will have to screw the lens all the way in, period to get a dot.

Now to either find that damn focusing ring i picked up awhile back or bandage my fingers, I dunno....

BrewCityMusic;

Nice power increase on the 6X.

The Hi-Power lens assembly is slightly longer than the original Aixiz glass lens assembly.

The included knurled focus ring can be adjusted out slightly with a threadlock compound like LockTite.

That would give you a little longer lens & focus ring assembly.

Larry do those 18650's ever die? I have run mine in an 8x build till then diode died then I ran it in a different build. After that I ran it in my 7 color build and I haven't had a voltage drop in that battery. A+ on those batteries
