    Hey Bradford717... Looks like you're going out of your way to Toll here as well.... What does being in Canada have anything to do with anything. Show us where I used Canada and my Company to Butt Hurt you... Like I said on the "other" Forum... Prove your accusations.... Show us all the hateful...

    I wonder if you can add yellow by using a non coherent source and collimating the flashlight. You use a filter to introduce color. Or a monochromatic to select whatever. I remember seeing a simulated laser display in years past that did a respectable job of focusing the beam.

    Go for the 506 compact scanners. Inexpensive and perform like much higher speed than they are spec'd

    You might consider a heatpipe approach. It uses a liquid to draw the heat away that recondenses and then flows back to the heat source. It gets pumped around the heatpipe. CPU coolers use this method in some fanless systems. You can buy a completed one and attach to your heatsink. They should...

    If I took that approach water cooling would be a better option. It's not out of the question. On the other hand a 25mm heatsink like used in a jayrob maglite build kit would give more thermal mass. It's a matter of the heatsinking but how quickly it's dissipating the heat off the diode before it...

    Unless you can force air through the holes with a small fan your approach will prove counterproductive. Removing material from the heat sink by drilling holes in it reduces its thermal mass. Less thermal mass=heat sink gets hot faster. The holes in the heat sink would provide extra surface area...

    Ahhh ancient systems. This is really the delemia. Should I try to get the air/legs working with all the old fittings/ferrules? Or should I try to “upgrade the air fittings with more modern couplings? Either way, I still have to incorporate or bypass the leveling manifolds, that are machined to...

    As for the Nubm44 it is a multi mode diode so it does make a rectangular beam. It's possible to correct the beam using cylindrical lens. I am working on another problem that definitely relates to these diodes. They get extremely hot because of the power and as that heat increases so does...

    You are not alone Wavelength. I hate this because this is a new forum but I am posting it in advance. I have had problems with laserbee harassing me too on another forum. He went beyond just stalking and harassing me on the other forum but to sending me hateful messages. I reported it to the forum...

    Here is a picture of the historical ferrule. 3 of the legs have been upgraded with the scwage fittings, but the leveling manifolds still have to have the old ferrule style couplers. They are machines that way unfortunately. Here is a picture of the the two different fittings, side by side. The...

    The fittings I'm thinking of were rounded, but pretty sure they weren't 11/64"; they were used as part of a waveguide pressurisation system on a satcoms ground station; I still have a load of the fittings and odd pieces of pipe in my collection.

    Im pretty sure it 11/64” pipe, they are really small. I tried to redesign the air system, with new fittings, and larger 1/4” air hose, but all the manifolds/levelers for each leg are “machined” to accept only air coupling fittings with the “rounded” style Ferrels. I haven’t been able to source...
