    Dude - a big, gnarly square pointer would ROCK!!

    Adam -

    Thanks for making these -
    this should make life much easier for us home-brew laser "noobs"!!!

    Laser (the acronym derived from Light Amplification by Stimulated Emissions of Radiation) is a spectacular manifestation of this process. It is a source which emits a kind of light of unrivaled purity and intensity not found in any of the previously known sources of radiation. - Lasers & Non-Linear Optics, B.B. Laud.

    WaaaaahaaaYaaaHehuuu!!!AaaaaahhYaaa ... *FLASH*....

    Very nice, dude.. I'll take 2, set for blu for now, +10, pending testing in my 'app'...

    PM, with details / timing of funds, needed, etc...

    Thanks for makin these for the 'hood...

    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
    WOW! Talk about a die hard patron! You're a real trooper Pat!

    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!!

    Sweet! We'll get into series resistors soon.

    No Problem. The real credit is due to Pat for the initial idea though. I would have never guessed that they would be this popular. After working on it, I do feel that they will make for a nice, clean install.

    HA! yeah, fortunately I enjoy soldering but sometimes it cam be a nuisance, especially when dealing with the tiny pins of LD's.

    Awesome!!!

    We are a go!

    Hey Jon!
    In the words of the good Dr. Strangelove,,, "Sank you sir"

    Hopefully these will work perfectly for your app.



    Okay guys,,, after playing with this board for about 4 hours more, I came up with this as a final design....



    If anyone has any comments or suggestions, now would be the time.

    I'll start a list tomorrow for peoples requests and features required as well as supply a paypal address to start collecting

    As for the series resistors, I'm thinking 1W metal film with the option of .56, 1.00, 1.50 and 2.00 ohm with 5% tolerance. Each board will come with one of your choice, installed or not. What do you all think of this value range? Anybody have any comments or suggestions on which would be best for a particular application? I'm personally going with .56 ohm resistors for my dual 445 setup and I currently use 2 ohm resistors on my dual red, though, 1 ohm would probably be fine.

    Thanks for designing this.
