Default Got a great candidate for a host body on amazon

I just ordered this the other day for another purpose and after looking it will make a great host body.

Amazon.com : Suzie's Mall 395 nM 51 UV Ultraviolet LED flashlight Blacklight 3 AA Battery : Black Light Flashlights : Electronics

It has a 52mm lens diameter (~56mm outside diameter) and an insert could be made either threaded on or an insert quite easily. the lens ring threads on and so does the flared section onto the main body (35mm outside diameter). It has a forward mounted switch with a ~15mm thick housing that could be either bored out and used or replaced with a momentary switch at the user's discretion. the battery holder was designed for 3 AA batteries, but it easily holds 3 14500's giving it far more power to work with.

All in all it has better tolerances than most cheap hosts and a lot of potential for an ~$11 flashlight.

That's pretty good for 10 bucks, will you have to machine a heat sink suitable for this?
