Save your money till you have like 200 bux then start looking for a 445 diode , to bad you need arround 40 dollars for a 445 cuz they all start @ 1 watt and that is without a driver ----> 20 bux

Or just go for red + green to make yellow , your previous tread remember ;)

Im pretty sure you could make a yellow for 40 dollars :)

12 dollars to spend on DTR for a optic unit + cheap red and green laser

you don't need 100's of milliwatts of power to make yellow

~20 mW red + 5mW green can make yellow :p

Ok well I'm gonna do that then.... Where do I get myself a green laser module & red laser module and all the clamps and glue and stuff to hold it together? lol

no its not but the problem is I have laser goggles for all colors but red, It would be impossible to build this for 20$ because goggles cost 20$ on dragonlasers and I have 40$... :(
EDIT:
It looks like I would have to stick that red laser in a module with a heat sink and a driver... too much money ;(

Build it with 5mW's of green and 20mW's of red and just dont look into the beam. No point of a yellow laser if you can't enjoy it ;)

Do what Styro did! Epoxy ftw!

Just dont use super/crazy glue since it can fog up your lens.

Order 1 from Dealextreme or o-like , you ordered 1 from DX before right ?
DX modules suck and o-like ones are too expensive and not the right power.
I decided to go with 20mW 650nm Red Laser Module (3~4.5V 12mm) - Free Shipping
True 50mW Green Laser Pointer Pen Black - Free Shipping

the true lasers are okay so I will take the module from it and add a potentiometer. use the pot to make 5mw green and use the 20mw red which I will consider safe and play with it... I could turn the pot up and use 50mW green + ir and 20mW red so I can burn sure it won't be yellow when I use all 50mw of the green instead of 5mw but I won't have to wear red laser protective goggles if I want to burn with it :)

and if you don't know what I'm talking about I added a pot so I can have yellow normal and dark green for burning and only have to wear green laser protective goggles because I am controlling the 5-50mW green and not the 20mW safe red.

DX sucks cuz it's cheap crap true ( well not exactly true but nvm )

Howcome you can say that o-like sucks aswel and not up to spec ? you never ordered a laser from o-like

50mW green + a lil red both not perfect focused so you end up with just 50 mW green ...well that won't burn much , just smoking dark plastic

I meant to say o-like does not have the power I need at a certion price I am not saying they suck, break, or are under spec however I did say dx modules suck so I got one of their true lasers.
