Default Need to collimate the beam on my DHOM 2W 532nm lab

Title pretty much says it all. I have a DHOM 2W+ 532nm labbie (purchased from meierlight) and I'd like to collimate the beam a bit and also be able to adjust it as needed.

I haven't been able to find any optics packages designed to go right onto the aperture of a labbie. The diameter of the aperture is 9/10 of an inch. Does anybody have any experience with this. I'm open to all suggestions, if you know of a place to buy a pre-made optics package tell me. If you know of a good way to build a collimating lens myself tell me.

I've been considering purchasing an empty lens tube from thor labs.
Thorlabs - 1" Lens Tubes

With one of these I can just build the whole assembly myself but I'd like to find out if anyone knows of something easier. All help is appreciated.

Is the beam already collimated? Do you just want to focus it?

The beam is already collimated.

I want to be able to focus it (and defocus it).
