    count me in for 4, and.....
    possibly another four at a later date

    Blue Light Special Lasorb's for me !

    i'll be ordering a handful.

    i'm tired of soldering things too small to see and these gizmos are about the same price i was paying for a thorlabs socket and lasorb.

    now if they'd just come with trail mix...

    you might want to slide a little consulting fee to 300 he can make life good for you.

    I hope that people jump on this gizmo so it can become a standard stock item! If people do not support it...it will go away and now you are back to soldering lasorbs on the back of diode pins...FAIL!!!!!!
    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    neat product, curious though the boards is screened with LOC 445 are the 445 not closed can?
    leading in trailing technology

    i think that's a jumper for LOC *or* 445. the diode pinouts are not consistent between the two.

    can you get the lasorb any closer to the diode??? (just kidding, i love this PCB)

    Timing is everything. Yeah, these make it really simple.

    Yes I do. Just made a mockup out of cardboard for a test fit. Unfortunately I don't have a diode socket yet but this will give you a basic idea of the top view. Yes.... they are super tiny!

    That should not be a problem as long as the pin spacing is the same. I imagine it is though.

    So, say someone might have on order, one of the twin mounts recently offered by Laserman532....

    • How would you use the connector module with the Axiz mounting block? I'm trying to visualize how you could mount the diode in the housings while attached to one of these mounting modules. "Noob" question, probably....
    • I would fall in the category of wanting to run (2) 445 diodes off of a single driver, with the hopes of achieving a reliable 1 watt(+) output. Anyone willing to tutor me on the series resistor requirement?

    This would all be much simpler for me to figure out if they involved to rotors and jet engines....
    Hey Randy,
    Yeah, these make it enormously simple. I believe pat answered your questions above but I'll just add to say the the back half of the Aixiz module is not needed for Pat's mounts. From here the front half will have the laser diode pins sticking out and all you have to do is slide this module onto the pins. The grip of the socket on the pins alone will hold the module in place.

    Great! Thanks!

    Count me in for 10 at least, I have lasorbs. It may work out better if you can supply a "kit" with all of the components in a bag and the user solders them. They could have more fun and you dont have to solder them up...or charge a fee for assembly...

    very nice. makes life simple.

    +1
    Thanks Pat!
    These sure will go great with your mounts. Due to the amount of configurability, I will offer the kit however anyone wants it. Completely assembled, half assembled on not assembled at all. Either way is fine with me.

    Sweet! I can fit about 50 in one hand! for that order I'll throw ya in a couple Nutri-grain bars. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6rE0EakhG8

    Yes, that's correct. This will make it so you can select which pin is cathode since the pinout of the LOC and 445 diodes are different. This board will work on MANY other diodes as well.

    LOL! No... Thanks for the great support.

    it is so simple that even I could wire it up and get it working...maybe...

    Just put me down for what others have to meet the minimum for this first run and lets get this going. (id say hold off on lasorbs for now. Just lets get the PCB going and the sockets some people already have lasorbs.

    anyway...i cant wait

    OK -

    I'm in!

    Put me down for (2) red,(2) blue WITH Lasorb!!

    ... and instructions on how to figure out what series resistor to add for running 2 blue diodes off of 1 driver....

    Thanks dude!!
