    Default Build in progress

    After some experimenting, I decided on my final setup.
    Today I started making some of the parts. I'm happy with the progress so far.

    The little plate and angle are for prisms. After those the two beams will be combined.

    Totally different league nice work.

    In my defense, I am somewhat limited by my workshop. I only have a drill press a handsaw and some files ... (I know a poor workman blames his tools)

    I tried avoiding the use of the aixiz modules, but again I couldn't make what I wanted with the tools I have.

    Also, the drivers will be in the rear of this module (TEC and diode drivers)

    I should end up with a module that has about the footprint of my Viasho 1W

    Nice! Are you losing much in the optics?

    I honestly have no idea

    But I'm guessing yes : uncoated prisms, red AR coated PBS, ...

    I will change the PBS over time

    Well it's back to the drawing board
    These mounts didn't turn out to be very thermally stable ...

    Very nice! What type of beam are you getting out of those prisms?
