Hi guys,

i just wanna make a simple laser pointer with about 50-100mW. I dont want to buy it, i want make it on my own. But where do you get those hosts? Do you make the heatsink yourself? Maybe you can tell me, where I can buy such hosts to fix the 12mm modul just with a screw. I have seen drivers, which mounted on a circle board and pressed in a ring. Where can I buy that?

What do you mean: Is it easier to buy a finish 12mm laser module with driver and the matching host? Where do you get your 12mm lasermodule (green or red).

Thanks a lot.

Welcome to LPF. What country are you in? We have members in 45+ countries. I can give you some links but in some cases I would give you a different link depending on what country.

Hi,

thanks for your answer.

I am from switzerland.

The problem is, I dont know really where to buy the parts. Seems that survivallaser is selling the things i want, but shipping is very expensive. And they dont selling laserdiodes in green or red. And is there an alternative than the C6 host? Maybe I can buy and Cree Case and modify it?

I only wanna make two laserpointers in green and red. 100-150mw is enough, more is too dangerous.

What I have is a red lasermodul 12 mm from aixis with a 100 mw red laser and driver in it. Just missing a green laser diode with driver and the other parts :) The price limit is about 100$.

Thanks for help!

Hi and welcome Laserstar,
Read up on some of the awesome builds these folks make, there's many pen builds here. When you read you understand a lt fast than some one telling you what to do, it's human nature to absorb info when you read . Keep reading it will come to you slowly and you will enjoy this much better, self satisfaction ..

Rich:)

Yes Survival Laser is probably the best place, they do sell two red diodes but not green, you may have been looking at their U.S. site and not their international site: Survival Laser International Home

I guess you already know about AixiZ: www.aixiz.net

Most of us buy our diodes/modules from DTR: https://sites.google.com/site/dtrlpf/
He also sells on Amazon and eBay: https://www.amazon.com/s?marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&me=A1NFWW2PTPQL0U&merchant=A1NFWW2PTPQL0U&redirect=true

You may find something of interest here, they are in the U.K. OdicForce

Eudaimonium is a good source of heat sinks, he is in Croatia: http://laserpointerforums.com/f64/eudaimonium-s-machine-shop-73749.html

We have Sinner who makes hosts, he is in the U.A.E. in Dubai.
