Hello fellow peoples,

Jesus its been what? 5-6 years since I've been on here..
I got side tracked with other hobbies.
I built a homemade street legal dune buggy. That took almost all my free time for the first 3-4 years.
Then I got into making renaissance type armor...
Then I got into building handguns...
Now I've come full circle and wanting to get back into lasers.
Maybe even combine a few of these hobbies.
Still have all my equipment and parts. Hung onto all my lasers I've built.

Look forward to talking to some old friends on here and making some new.. Going to take me a few days to go through everyones projects I missed out on the past few years.
Glad to see everyone still hard at it though.

Thanks, yea alot has changed. Last I was on here "yellow" was the newest color.
Portable 445's were getting close to the upper 3W... Just a few hours browsing around again... I'm impressed
how far its come. I joined in March of 2011, and within a few months I built quite a few lasers, spent a minimum of 2k in a matter of months.
Looks like I got some catching up to do... Some really fantastic builds on here.. Super impressed...
Gotta dust of my old solder gun and Laser bee...
I'm in the market for a 445 with at least 3W or higher at the moment.
Also looking to build a super compact 445 for a pointer on my Springfield 1911 45 acp.
Its got a crimson trace on it right now.

Have you seen the scariness of the NUBM44? 6W+. Some hitting 7W from a single diode. :eek:
Yes get that soldering iron and lpm ready. :p

You do have a lot of blues in your signature. :D

The NUBM44 is very dangerous however but a very good laser to own. Certainly one to respect and not mess with.
Also take a look into the 4W+ NUBM07E's at 465nm and the 1.4W NDB7475 520nm. We sure have some powerful and amazing diodes to offer now. Check out DTR as he is a highly respected seller here as you may or may not already know.
Bye Bye pocket. :eg: :D

LOL,! I don't think you were ever active on my maby 2 years here but I hope you still have most of those builds on your signature and yup it sure looks like you like blue:)
About dusting off that laserbee, you might just want to get a new one. Its really amazing to see how that 2.5W unit was all the "rage" and only really needed maby 3 years ago how:cool:
