I am happy you got the 12x burner. That was a lucky shot.
If the red diode has a black square package then it don't fit in the standard module.
You can build something else with it but a handheld laser would be hard.
Yeah. And as far as ordering from DTR, is he taking some off time? I ordered an M-140 and sent a PM to him about two days ago and haven't heard back. With his reputation in the community for being the BEST for buying mid to high powered diodes from I'm not really worried about it, but I'm curious as all hell to be sure.
Okay, I posted on his thread. Great idea there. I've been seeing a few comments on how the PM system is a tad glitchy right now, maybe that has something to do with it. All im waiting on is that diode (I've got everything else including goggles) so I'm reasonably excited . Thanks for the help TJ. (Let me know if TJ is okay, it does sound a little informal and I was sorta uncomfortable with calling you it )
Phew. But yeah, he's already gotten back to me after posting on his sale thread.
Genius. I do feel like we're getting a bit off topic now, so I'm going to go hunting for another steal. What else should I be looking for besides BRD's? Come to think of it, all the other diodes nowadays are either virgin diodes or in cheap sleds EXCEPT BR's.
Although its frowned upon eekbay sellers will just string you along making offers to refund 100%. It matters not that you insist upon your item and in the end you will get your refund and nothing more-- been there ..done that.(as a buyer NOT a seller)
On this issue Feebay sides with the seller even if it is by default. Threats of neg. FB are prolly laughed at. GLAD you lucked out on that 12X drive. Score one for us little guys!!
