    I'm interested in the correction optics but not the application. If this forum goes pointer I go to that other one that got start a year or so ago. The posts are getting mighty thin these days. Still not giving up here for now. Hoping this is just a bump in the road. Until yellow diodes come i...

    Oh forgot. You can also make it from plaster and shape it. You can the put Mylar on that. Did that for a little solar cooker but I was not worried about distortion. I found metalized plastic sheet search plastic mirror sheet. Even Home Depot sells it

    Www.shapeways.com. Design it up and have the print it in aluminum. You can the coat it or polish it yourself. If the shape isn't crazy maybe even put Mylar on the surface. You can also have it made in copper and plate Nickle then silver plate sand clear coat. Anyway that place rocks and the...

    Too bad, that one had decent tech skills, if we could have converted him to the good side of the force.. If we had a pointer section, it would need a full time moderator. That said:

    Nice write up. One thing I found was the distance from the diode to the first cyl lens can make a difference in the final beam and most import to me cuz I do graphics the near field beam. Also the focus of the diode one the first lens is important. Nothing anyone doesn't know but important to...

    Glass and some plastics are shaped in the University shop with a wet diamond wheel, a cheap tiny table top belt sander with a glassblowing belt, oven slumping, and if need be, pitch lapping like you would make an amateur telescope with. It does not take much to make a diamond disk glass saw,...

    I was wondering if any one knew what the trim pots on the driver do, I have realigned this laser twice, I think they should have epoxied the screws but oh well, I got it back to 840mw from 1 watt, the first time I aligned it I got the full output power but now I cant get more then 840 and the...

    hello everybody, my name is David! I have a question about handheld lasers, I have become interested in the handheld lasers and would like to know if it is necessary to go to a school to learn and understand about how they work or can an average person understand how they work without any formal...

    Excessive personalities aside, I still think a section for hand held lasers is a better idea for here than the one for holography. The derailment of this thread was all a personal thing that had nothing to do with a type of laser, how they're powered or mounted, or how they're used. But I digress.

    Hey everyone, I have some extra bits and pieces I'm getting rid of. They were run at low current for around 50-100 hours, and are in great shape. Each unit consists of a diode, mounted in Dave's brass diode housings, with 405-G-2 lenses. Reds: - Oclaro HL63193MG (~700mW)

    I used to use chemical silvering to put a reflective coating on holograms embossed into mylar. Got the kit from Peacock Labs. Same process astronomers used to use to silver mirrors. First part is a stannous chloride solution to tin the surface. Two other components (caustic and silver nitrate)...

    In one of my previous topicss I was talking about using curved mirrors for a project. I want to have complete control of the shape of the mirror and it can't be just an ordinary concave or convex mirror. Since I'll need to make probably a few dozen shapes during the prototyping period I need to...

    That proves his "screen grab" was a mock up, doesn't it? Gone any way, so brush him off and forget him.

    I was wondering that too... I tried to find out if he was this VG troll at LPF, posted that picture of his reported house address without word of what it was, pretended it was a place I wanted to rent to get a response, he didn't have anything to say, he obviously picked a fake house address which...

    Oh, well... he's become amusing to me now, I beat him at his own game and he continues to pretend I'm the liar. :p He has no interest in PM's, he wants to have a show, that's what he does. OK, now that I think I've set this all straight, I'm out, I said it before, but this time I'm out. Although,...

    Because he is banned at every watch forum except one (Watchfreeks) where he has tricked them with his lies and fake watches (Rolex and Accutron Astronaut M2, 24 hour dial Accutron) BTW, he may have faked that screen grab of your post on LPF with his house, he did it with me a few times. This...

    You know how to stop this kind of dross, cut out the dead wood. Accutronitis/Wavelength is a sociopath who thinks he is always right, you can see this by his posts here. If everyone else is wrong, how come he is banned at so many fora? The guy even threatened to kill me several times, wanted me...

    I don't know what to think, I thought this guy was VG from the start, he acts exactly like him.... if I could find out this guy was into lasers for a long time too, in addition to watches, that would pretty much solve the mystery for me, it's VG. YOU CLEARLY DON'T WANT A LASER POINTER SECTION!...
