Legend has it, somebody once managed to take a Spyder 3 host apart...
Seriously though, I remember one post long ago, problem is most stuff is glued in, so you gotta use hot air gun on it, and the heatsink with the diode in it is threaded in, which makes it probable you'll twist and break the...
Here's a link:
Personally, no idea why people insist on the "1st introductory post" stuff. It should be OK to just come up and ask a question without first sharing personal information.
Thank you, I could use some info about new actual drivers. Some of these things take over 20 Watts of input power, I'm really curious what kind of driver will power this, while still being able to fit in a flashlight-sized host.
EDIT - As for the first build... hmm that 490nm thing looks exotic...
Indeed, the info compiled there will take me some time to chew through, it's quite comprehensive.
As for the football, heh yeah thanks. :beer: This is the highest we have ever ranked in World Cup. Pretty big news. People are going crazy over here.
Sweet, thank you! (Didn't actually expect somebody compiled such a neat list)

I'll be working on my game but I'll find out the result of today's match by the amount of car honking, fireworks and gunfire outside my window, anyway. Like 2 previous times.
Oh hi, always nice to see another familiar face :)
Thanks so much for the update. Reading all these...
Hey, Survival is still around! I think I did some heatsinks for them before...
Anyway, well take a look at my old shop, the heatsinks were made for empty flashlights we all commonly had a name for, like "C6" or "XM-L2" or "C3"...
Very good, but I meant premade hosts, flashlight shells.
We used to order it from DealExtreme... quickly checks if that even exists anymore ... Oh that still exists! There was this other alternative to DX I can't seem to remember anymore.
EDIT: @Bowtie, Woah Jetlasers's PL-E thing is ***y. I...
Reply to your edit,
Man, I don't even recognize most of those wavelength numbers. Things are quite different.
Should I get my lathe operational again, I'd love to produce some sinks for you all.
What are currently popular hosts? Where do you get them from?
What about drivers?
