    Looks good
    I like the serious cooling effort on those prisms!
    - There is no such word as "can't" -
    - 60% of the time it works every time -

    LOL!
    just put those ones in for a pic,they were used on my mini 2w 445 at the last uk meet ,and the bit of heat sink was an exact size to put them at the right height for that build

    CLean build, except i can't figure out how the left row of reds will be mirrored around the corner down out.
    Will it go UP in a PBS cube and then down by the mirror that is located to the right of the 2 blue diodes ?
    I didn't fail !
    I just found out 10,000 ways that didn't work.

    no pbs will be used and the beam will come down to the right of the blue
    the lens i am using are supposed to have a 1.5mm x 1mm beam @1mrad
    so should be able to get all six reds on the scanner mirrors, if that fails
    i have ordered a wave plate, using that and a pbs i should get a
    3mm x 1.5mm beam and put up with the losses of the wave plate and pbs

    Just realsed there is the knife over mount missing inthe pic for the left bank
    Of diodes dimitri
