2021-04-05 (M) UVLaserModule COMPLETED

I wired the button, laser module, and battery holder. A quick test showed that the circuit worked. I snipped off the holder's black wire and passed the red wire through the unit to keep it neat. For the negative connection, I soldered directly to the tab on the outside, which I wouldn't recommend since it melted the plastic and threatened to fall out.

The screws didn't fit as planned. I had to drill out the top portion and tap the bottom half of the screw holes. Fortunately, I didn't need nuts so the result was clean looking.

Everything performed as I had hoped. The lens was focusable, and I could adjust it without twisting the laser module. The button rebounded cleanly every time, and I am happy to have a UV resin-curing handheld with a fine point.

I created a Thingiverse project.
