I fell in love with the first brass host I got off ElecticPlasma ( EP ) so I told him it was real lonely and asked him to make two more. He said sure, he understood about how lonely a brass 445nm can get! So he fired up his lathe and wal-la, two more. Just as gorgeous. So I gave the 445nm, a mitts 638nm with attached driver and a g2 lens as a brother. And a 100mw ndg4216 515nm with attached driver with a g2 just to make sure the 445 would never get lonely again.:tinfoil: So here's some pictures of the birth. ( not to graphic, child safe ) First picture is of what we have to work with.[/URL][/IMG]This is after I shortened the length of the contact board,she was just a little to long to fit in the host so that the lens would just fit flush with the top of the host[/URL][/IMG]Now we recess the nut and bolt in the plug just a bit[/URL][/IMG]now were finished with the contact boards and getting ready to solder them to the diode/driver combo.[/URL][/IMG]The first one gets solder on and shrink tubed[/URL][/IMG]The second one gets soldered and shrink tubed[/URL][/IMG]We have both modules and contact boards soldered and ready for install[/URL][/IMG]Getting ready for the big moment,[/URL][/IMG]And Houston we have ignition Time to throw them on the LPM and see what we've got.[/URL][/IMG]The 515nm we have just over 120mw's of some real pretty green.[/URL][/IMG]The mitts we're doing just over 325,mw's now for some beams shots[/URL][/IMG][/URL][/IMG][/URL][/IMG]Add the 445[/URL][/IMG]Add a couple of outside beam shots[/URL][/IMG][/URL][/IMG][/URL][/IMG]And the finished product,and a shout out to E.P. for some really great lathe work!![/URL][/IMG] Hope you enjoyed reading as much as I enjoyed building Merry Christmas to all!!
