But i was just wondering if i put in in series to 1 ohm resistor in that 1w 445nm diode case then its resistance adds to my 1 ohm. But 1 ohm shows to be enough for 1w laser, so if i set it 0 so theres only my 1 ohm resistor and its enough, in this case i cant kill my diode, am i right?
Yes, you are right given the underlined statements are true. Good luck. Keep asking questions. That's what the forum is for. But make sure you're answering questions also for a productive dialog.

I don't know if they will ship to you but take a look at what laserlands offers at very good prices. Look at my post # 21

I cant buy mostly from your given webpages because the postage cost would be just too high. If i pay like 40 bucks for postage then it makes buying from there pointless. I checked eagles protective glasses and what i found. They cost 40 buck and postage is another 40 bucks. That makes it pointless. Best postage prices are usually in ebay. I wanna also thank for your offering to assist me.

473nm is usually DPSS which is much more complicated to produce than just a diode. You'd really need to buy a completed module with driver and just put it in a host. Still expensive that way.

520nm isn't that rare, it's just still fairly new technology so the prices are a little higher than 532nm - at least at the lower powers.

$80 for a good pair of laser glasses isn't pointless - how much is your eyesight worth to you? $80 is cheap as far as laser glasses go, I've seen certified glasses from other sources at ~$200 a pair. Better to spend $80 on something that you know works than cheap out and risk your eyesight.

Hi, Ovni sure if i have enough knowledge to answer And thanks again.

Pman, unfortunately they wont ship to estonia, but im gonna try to contact them maybe. I cant see their other diodes for sale also.

Diachi, sure eyes are the most valuable. But still not gonna buy first one, gonna watch price too, i think some chinese(around 40 bucks) would work too. Of course im gonna test them first when i get my laser done.
