My newest project and the hardest one yet! fitting 2 LDs optics and adjustable drivers with external pots to adjust the brightness of each laser on the go. I am using a PL520 50mw diode and a 200mw 660 red diode. This will be a tough one since I don't own any power tools, Just sandpaper but that's all I need BB to make it work!
Day 1(Parts from eBay ordered 3 weeks ago)
Made a rough outline of the driver compartment with holes for the 2 trimmer pots
Made a bat contact board using a single layer perf board( I will use spare component legs to make the connections through the board)

I am going to be posting updates daily.
Day 3( sorry for the late update lpf was down all day for me)
Made a new driver holder and made a good switch for the battery compartment also completed and tested the driver:

All the parts together:

Modified generic boost driver for the green and lm317 for red, Also Update: Made the diode and optic mount:

I need to ask @Lifetime17 About making me a replica of that part made of aluminum.

Yes an aluminum sink/mount would be a good idea. :)
Just let Rich/Lifetime17 know your measurements.
