Sorry to hear your going to be missing your baby for awhile. Hopefully the turn around will be quick, and she’ll be back where she belongs shortly. Glad to got a couple more laser to help take the edge off, but I do know how addicting the 1 Watts 520 can be. Such a beautiful beam they throw. Looking forward to your beam shots. As Tom Petty sang about “the waiting is the hardest part”
Ps, a 1watt 492, that would be the holy grail of lasers. But one can dream.Hey BobMc
Thanks-yes a 1watt 492!A 5watt 492! :eg: :eg:I didn't feel real lucky, and with only one diode, I played it safe and kept mine to 275mA, and got 138mW avg. output; a very visible beam at that setting. :yh:
Pelagius, you'll love that Sanwu gaurdian 492nm if you decide to get one!
My giant Jetlaser 1watt+ gets warm, but just warm. I tried it outside and smoked leaves too the day I got it! The beams these 520 1 watters
make are epic. Try a black folgers coffee can lid. It punches through pretty fast! Gray from jetlaser contacted me today and the 3.5 watt
465nm I ordered is not buildable. The diodes they have are only good for 3 to 3.3 watts. So I got a rebate and one of those is coming.
My 1243mw 520 does not nuke white paper. I think 3 watts of 465nm might. I bet it gets warmer than my 520 too!
