So good news - I finally got the new diode into the host and it seems to be working even though I don't actually have a permanent fit - I just pressed it in REALLY hard (diameter of the inside had shrunk due to hardened thermal adhesive).

It seems that the thermal contact isn't as good, and the diode isn't as efficient, but I am still getting nearly 2.5W out of it from a cold start.

Thanks Wolfman29 for doing this build and posting your (fantastic) results. This answers/confirms some questions I had in regards to the use of silver as heatsink, not to mention host! Beautiful craftsmanship...you'll be passing this one down to your kids one day.

And someday I too would certainly like to build something like this. A pen-size yet powerful pointer = GRAIL!

I've read in some ancient scriptures before that you can turn the eyes of a wizard bright blue if you stab him in the torso with a silver laser like yours & turn it on while he's screaming. Sadly though, you can also reverse time if you dont remove the laser after a few minutes or if he passes out

Haha. Titanium would be no good, and there are already lots of them out there - it has poor thermal conductivity. And gold also has poor thermal conductivity. =p

Diamond has a heat transfer coefficient five times better than copper.
I love to see a diamond host. Don't forget to put on the goggles because laser will be blindingly bright.

Diamond Materials - Thermal Properties of CVD Diamond

I have seen a video of a person holding a industrial diamond disc and it slices though ice because the heat from the hand was enough to melt the ice.
