Re: My current weapon build: Type 2 Phaser Pistol

Thanks, the soldering is the quickest part for me. I'm a self-taught piss poor electrical engineer so that is MY difficulty :wink:
I killed one nichia diode when my lm350 (same specs as the lm317, just handles more current) circuit shorted on the table from a hastily discarded capacitor lead off-cut. That one pissed me off for a while...
I killed another from a faulty micro flex driver, the laser worked for about a week. Lava didn't respond to ANYTHING from emails to pm's. That is when I contemplated coming down to the states and letting him taste my 4-fingered knuckle sammich.
Since then I haven't killed any other diodes but my builds were *ahem* less hasty.
I used those cheapie resistors because that is what I had laying around.
All said and done I have probably spent ~$1500 on lasers and electronics but I was pretty liberal with THAT money because I needed to get under a tax bracket before the end of the year.
You mentioned your laser safety glasses, are those ones the wide wavelength "eagle pair"? I have 2 pairs of them too, best thing for lasers in my opinion. The other 2 pair I have are just for 405 and 445nm but they are not nearly as comfy.

Re: My current weapon build: Type 2 Phaser Pistol

HA!! That is almost exactly how mine looks. I used one of those big, white, ceramic resistors, that's good for 5 watts, or something, but that's beautiful, bro! I learned the hard way what the dummy load is for. I guess I was the dummy load (or the loaded dummy, take your pick) before, huh?

Very nice Auto XX! Soldering is a PITA for my hands. Otherwise it doesnt look that hard to do.

I made this one a LONG time ago, works well as a dummy load to mimic any diode type, just select the jumper to put more or less diodes in line for voltage drop.


And yeah, the flexv5 pretty much can't be beat for the size.

Re: My current weapon build: Type 2 Phaser Pistol

I have a couple of diy adjustable "test jig" laser diode drivers I constructed from scratch using LM317's that work great. Also, you MUST have a dummy load to go with. I'm considering building one out of an LM350, or possibly an LM338 to get more power, if I want it.

Re: My current weapon build: Type 2 Phaser Pistol

24 diodes, and it is the Ca.si.o xj a140 (word filter so google doesn't come snooping) I think
I made another driver that is 1/3 the price and lets me regulate the voltage as well as the current.
My original lasers all had Lava's flexv5 in 'em but the new project (if I ever get around to finishing it) will use this new driver, there is just no excuse for $30+ for $2-4 in parts.
I guess he found a way to pay for his schooling :sad:
The fact that he doesn't respond to customers or answer emails pisses me off too.

I have no problem lighting matches (of any color) with my 1.6W 445.
Burns white paper as well but you will do immediate damage to your eyes without OD4+ laser glasses.

Ahhh, familiar numbers. There is only one 445nm diode that can do that, and only "Dr. Lava's" Micro Boost/Micro Flex drives can supply it with that much current. hell, even an LM317 wide open is only 1.5A. So regardless of your laser's host, you HAVE to have exactly the same laser that I built.
I have trusty tried and true laser safety glasses that I have had all along, those are rated for an OD4 in 2 bands: 200-450nm, and 800-2000nm. I have another (allbeit much cheaper) pair I got to go with this laser, that are rated for OD7 for about 400-500nm. I never use those, though, I prefer my old ones. I just have the other pair so I can show off safely, basicly, they serve mostly as the "guests" glasses.
The only source (regardless of where yours came from) for the diodes: they must be harvested from the new Casio "pico" DLP projectors, period. They have like 22 diodes each, so an unknown (but I think, huge) portion of those that they sell just get harvested, from what I understand, as DLP projector performance is concerned, they suck ass, compared to the traditional "light bulb" projectors. that is really funny to me, for some reason.

Re: My current weapon build: Type 2 Phaser Pistol

About 1.6 watts, so yes, yes, and yes. It's rediculous, actually. That was the whole point, after all. I cheat a little, i color the matchheads with a black magic marker so they light faster. White has immunity to lasers, but it really does a number on anything black. It pops black baloons good, too.

If you look at the ends of the thing, you'll see a bunch of that otherwise worthless #BB chilled lead shot glued in to make it balance, and so that it feels right: it has some weight to it, now. That was deliberate, i didn't like that it still felt like a toy. With all the extra weight added, it doesn't feel like a toy anymore, when you pick it up, you can tell that something is up.

Someone asked how I stuffed 2, 18650 cells into the phaser, this is how:

It aint pretty inside, but it works. This is then a 6000mAh 1S2P "pack". I put in that 1 farrad 5v "supercap", too.

Very good, Moe, Curly, and Shemp. But the 3 brothers never worked together at once. They always had bounce-off guy Larry. Go figure.

Stoogequiz: Of all of the stooges, that is of all 5 in total, which 3 were brothers? I was going to add and which 2 weren't, but that's sort of a given if you know who were.
