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!!

I really like the 515nm! :) You might want to remove the manufacture name though before others see it. :p

@ Lifetime,Thanks, Think they turned out pretty good. It's nice how these low mw unit's throw a beam at night, very nice. Run time seems to be quite long, ran them over a minute and not even a little warm. It's was cold outside so I'm sure it helped. And thanks for the kind words.:yh: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ @ ElectricPlasma, Yea, they are a beautiful sight.! Very nice hosts, can't tell them apart, you did a great job. Gotta say though, the 515 is my favorite.:san:
