Well I mean just unscrew the front cover and take a picture just to see how things are arranged. It shouldn't affect the alignment. Those mirrors, etc. are usually screwed down and glued.

That is a pretty neat unit. Thanks for sharing. I'v been eyeing one for a bit now. Perhaps putting it together with a cheap 20K scanner.

I too would be interested in seeing how things are arranged.

Awesome photos Fiddy! Thanks for doing this. What a good view of the interior!

That's a pretty nifty compact design. I'm betting the $190 500mW version can be easily tweaked (potmodded) to the 800mW version as those laser diodes can probably handle the extra power just fine, and the green is the same mW.

Damn alignment would be a bitch if something were to fail! lol. I suppose you could maybe squeeze some flex mounts in there if you ever needed to realign it. Thanks for the internal pix :)

I get other items from them and have been tempted to get one, but time & $ are in short supply now, so no way.
Thanks for sharing these super pics my need to see inside has been satisfied.

I can get very cheap and small 10K scansets for 39$ each-- testing one now.. a review will get done and posted soon.

+2 for fiddy

Thanks for the photo's!:beer:
It's a neat little unit and looks like it may be fun to experiment with.

I pm'd the seller and he said the 445nm diode was an A-140 so at the sacrifice of white light I should be about to adjust it to around 750-1000mW without risk right? Also if I were to get one how would I hook up power to it? I have never had anything that doesn't use batteries or plug directly into the wall so I'm kind of a newb :undecided:. He said that it uses a 12V power source whatever that means. Could I buy something that I could put batteries in and just plug it into the driver? Or something to plug it right into the wall? :thanks:

Brendon, you can just use the 12V rail on a computer power supply for the laser AND you could power it with a 12V lead acid battery (scooter battery which you can charge with your atx psu)

Theres countless ways to get 12V from the wall and from batteries.

The plug that plugs into the power supply on the driver this:

What kind of plug is it? What can I use to plug into it?

If you had to you, you could just solder some wires directly to those (pull the plastic casing off first). Then you can modulate the channels for other colors. Left unattached, those modulation pins are just floating and will stay on.
