Wow this is my first low power single mode pl450b 120mw rated diode build and I love it, I want to finish my mini stainless steal single mode set, so I've got the 120mw Opnex coming very soon, I might use a mini linear driver for that one. This was a really fun build, but It nearly ended terribly, while running out of black wire I used red on positive and negative and after putting thermal adhesive on the soldered pins to stop them breaking I forgot the pinout all I could do was guess and wouldn't you now it I got it wrong, turning the current up really slowly and click 18v to the diode, we'll probably not but that's what it was showing, switched it off straight away and swapped the cables I was about to have a heartattack, but it came to life couldn't believe it, it seemed the best spot on my power supply was 300ma so that's what I set the Xboost to. I used a brass module this time from China. Bit of work on the drill press again and here he is!
