Special request: not a host, but an extension.

Hi to all.
The problem: I have an host with a long focal lens for the c-mount red diode.
With this configuration, I cannot obtain a tiny dot near the aperture, but a big line.
I wish to use a modified beam expander like the one that I have modified and adapted for my Frankenstein host, but the input beam must be no more than 2 mm diameter, while the line generated is more than 3 mm.
The solution: turn away the beam expander from the aperture, just enough to have a short line as input in the first lens.
What I need: a 50 cm light tube that will connect the host to the beam expander. That tube must have two slightly different diameters. A good idea could be a tube inside another tube, like a telescopic antenna, so I can fine tuning the correct distance between diode and beam expander.
The tube will be safety locked thru three nylon screws that already I have .. . I need only three threaded holes .
I know that there are some nice guys that create very beautiful hosts, but I do not know if they are disposable to do a similar build.
Anyone can help me?

Richard.

Send a message to Mrcrouse. He's an accomplished machinist, and may be willing to take a crack at it.

Mrcrouse has treated me well with custom pieces I've needed recently and they turned out great.

Just draw him up what you need, and I'm sure he can help.

Greetings,

I too have had several items and adapters made by Mike, and as Tony mentioned, he does excellent work. I have a 10x expander I use with an adapter he made for me and works great. I have it set for a G2 lens so I can use it on all lasers using that lens.
Works great !!!


cheers,
Moe
