16.5mm and 10mm.

If you can find some cooler clickies, I'll have to buy a truckload of 'em from you.

The apology letter was something that was printed onto a bag that the package was put in, so its something they use often whenever a package is ripped up/damaged as this was so hopefully nothing falls out.... So no hand written letter or anything that special but at least someone took the time to put it in the bag, as i shipped a laser out to someone a couple months ago the package was the same as your and only shipped a few states away after the package was lost and recovered during transit there was a tear in it that the laser fell right out of... So i had to make and send him another at my expense. Im glad nothing like that happened hear, i was worried about something falling out when i first looked at it but the way your wrapped the host together i think saved the focus piece from falling out
Again great job on the host it looks awesome, i cant wait to get it finished and build another.
Thanks for the response i thought it was the 16mm switches but wanted to double check. Looks like its gonna take till the beginning of next month to get to me.
Anyone in the US or even Canada have an extra switch they would be willing to send me? I will pay shipping and cost of the switch course.
Thanks again

The 401 looks like it would leave a nice finished look. How do i order from them do you have a link to where i can purchase that from? I would just bend the tabs over to connect with the battery? How do i make the connection with the case? or is there some other way to make this work with the host that i dont see?
TS and CLIF thanks, stand by chances are i will end up getting one from one of you. What kind of switches do you have, do they have the spring bounce? Maybe a link to a picture of the switch of possible would help.

The click pole may leave a bit to be desired, but I would imagine that it wouldn't be difficult to spruce it up with a fancy fitting of your own device. Basically, anything that can be mounted on a pole would be fine.

I left the Digikey link there if you feel like ordering

In terms of connecting it to the host - I'm not sure what approach you'll want to employ. For me, I'll probably use my fancy aluminum solder to solder one lead to the host wall. Then depending on spacing, I'll fashion a battery contact of some sort.

Default Re: From concept to reality - Phobos host (taking orders)

the DX one pushes right in, there are tabs on opposite sides which should make good host contact. I've not had time to finish mine yet, after going through 3 or 4 bad switches and killing a 12x diode in the process somehow - lol - I just put it aside until I really have time to work on it...

No, I will. There was supposed to be a switch in there, it's my responsibility.

Let me know when you want one shipped to your address and from whom, and I'll take care of the funds.

Ok, the sooner you can get it sent out the better, it probably fell out from the tears in the package before they put it in a bag to save the rest of the contents. Good thing the host didn't fall out and get tossed around or lost.
Any switch you can get and have sent to me that will work in the host will be fine, i would prefer the standard one with the spring bounce on it so i do not have to bend any tabs, solder anything, or try and rig up a battery terminal connection if the gap is not right. So it will be easier to get the one i believe DX sells that everyone is using. So whoever wants to send one to me EUD can take care of the details.
Thanks a bunch
I killed a diode myself too, not sure what it was all i know is i had it put out 850mw with an o-like 1.5amp (claimed) adjustable driver that wasn't turned up but a 3rd of the way i was scared to push it anymore being that i don't have specs on the diode and it only put out 450mw when i got it used from someone with a micro boost drive... so i feel it was only pushed to 450mw for a reason and me pushing it to 850mw im surprised it didnt kill it then while i used it. With good heat sinking it seemed to do alright tho, until i think i killed it trying to re-solder it to put in the phobos host for now till the M-140's come in.
Thanks again.

Finally got mine, and finally built something in it.

Decided to go red, and did a 1.1W Mits build with a 650-G. I created one of my "Magic" series polarity-free drivers Teaser side profile:


Here's the build in action. LOVE this host!
