For sure not a kids toy anymore! (man toy)Nice! But not a kid's toy for sure, even if it looks like one.
Yep... I'm going to get a nice video showing the sounds and the safety switch. As well as the custom EzFocus adapter.That is sick 12x in a phaser thats awesome!!! Take some more beam shots i really wanna see some more that thing is a beast......

Great job Jay sick phaser !!!Uhm ...... about this ......
Do you know that this is a provocation, for the DIY maniac part of me ? .....
i think it depend from how much space you have at the top of the rotating part, but i think it can be done auto-turning with a cheap servo from DX (5$, if i recall correctly), modified, and one of those lever microswitches 2PST (a deviator, two positions, long lever, possibly soft to move)
Something like this, maybe .....
Two pins on the finned part take care about the switch that stop the movement, shifting it when the rotation is at the right point, and the other switch set the position, and need to be put somewhere on the body (maybe a slider switch or one of the computer mini-clicky switches, near where the thumb is when you hold the phaser, so it can be acted without use two hands) ..... the servo, if i recall correctly, have usually 180 degrees of movement, so it's enough for rotate it completely without require extra gears ..... just take away the electronic board from it and use it "as is", directly connected to the motor ..... and if it roll in the opposite direction, just swap the wires (and adding a 100nF capacitor in parallel of it, can prevent disturbs to the rest of the electronic too)
Oh, btw, they usually works from 3 to 6 V, so if the phaser use a 9V battery, maybe better put a resistor in serie ..... if uses a pair of AA cells, 3V are enough, just a bit more slow
:thanks:Your cone tipped Ez Focus Adapter is sweet, it turned out better than i expected :gj:
Would you maybe consider making a the heat sink and ez focus adapter for sale if more people show an interest ?
Great job Jay sick phaser !!!
I was looking for the old style phaser at toysrus and they didn't have anymore so not wanting to go home empty handed I purchased 2 of the new movie phasers. I like the stun/kill feature you twist it manually and it locks in place then when you press the button it spins back. I made red/blu-ray both sides phr-803t and a loc. I also made a green one but it was only
10mWs , I sold the pair. I think i'll have to do it again but this time keep them and move on up to a 12x diode
I have several of the Phasers on hand now, and I would do a 'Hot' option kit, but would not include the diode. You would have to get your own diode to turn it into a laser...Wow, that's so cool! Does anyone know where I could get one of these already modded? I have no desire to build my own... :|
