Yeah, I've seen the pictures from the units that come with the machine, not looking forward to attacking that after the DOA issue is sorted out with Banggood, but they have a hard time reading and processing more than one issue at the time it seems :P

For now I'm gonna have a go at a 200mW modulein a similar host, and a 50mW module in a cylindrical host.

Not concerned about saving the OEM driver, more concerned about loosing the diode to ESD if I disconnect it from the driver in the process. Guess I'll try something new, and be a little gentle :P

LOL, they are fun to take apart. You can't get it apart without destroying the OEM circuit board in the heat sink, or at least I could not.

I got it apart without destroying the original driver. But they are not really worth saving, maybe the diode is. But yeah it took days of soaking to get it to budge!

Looks like beikeland has the laser cutter disease really bad.

It was initially a relief to print the house elf panel. Showed that the stuff I have been working on actually works. Then I see where it could be better and I fall down another time sink hole.

I REALLY need a bigger frame. The A5 is just a toy.

I can relate for sure. There is just something satisfying about seeing your hard work produce something :)

Yeah, I could not agree more. I had to split up the LED Jack-O-Lantern parts into 3 panels just for one kit lol. I can see this thing being nice for small plaques and what not but I really need my dollar tree foam board sized machine right about now lol.

Since I started upgrades I have not got anything useful done other than upgrades and testing! I did not know these things came with a rabbit hole attached!

this reminds me of a game I play on xbox one (well, used to play) called Destiny. In one of the raids (end game content) there are these holes you have to watch out for or you will wall to your death and it is dark lol.

first few seconds of this video show what I'm talking about.

Yeah sure did. Here are some pictures of one I built with a laser diode, heatsink and fan kit from eBay and the driver I designed.

We are still testing the design and tweaking it but we should be offering kits for sale soon or if you are handy with soldering you can download the design and build one yourself.

The first picture is me testing the power with a G2 lens.

And when are you selling me this kit?  8)

So any blank 7 3⁄8"  3 1⁄8" piece of paper will do? Or do you require the usual banknote print as well?

Next day shipping is fine. :D

On more serious note, finally installed the chinese driver depictured earlier in this thread, in a similar lower powered laser module, seems to work well, or at least heaps better than without it :P

lol, you all are too funny.

We hope to have the driver boards available soon. We have a minor annoying issue with the board and we didn't want to release it like that. I'll be testing the fix for it hopefully tonight, updating the boards schematic and PCB layout and ordering some more PCBs made. Sure makes me wish I had my PCB fabricator machine right about now :)
