My first laser build

So, as some of you may know I bought a supposed 100mw laser module from lazerer.com, and it was a bit of a disappointment. (http://laserpointerforums.com/f51/am-i-missing-something-94510.html) I think it may be max 15mw (no LPM though, so only an estimate, and yes I know, I thought it was probably <5mw when I first got it but I think I was overreacting at it being so much less that 100mw). One day I will get a LPM.... So anyway I decided to put it in my c6 host anyway and get a more powerful laser later. I had all kinds of fun with putting the parts together and you will probably notice that the module and heatsink look rather funny.... here are some pics. :D


outdoor beamshot (with long exposure) sorry about the fuzziness, don't have the best camera... :(

Ps, any ideas on how to write on the laser safety stickers from survival laser? All the pens I tried rubbed off even after a few minutes...
