Hi, Or if you want you can see the micro flex V5 driver for 25.00 , leave it in the 1st range and set it to your desired Amp. If you need a host I have one to go great with that diode . Prewired and holds 1X 18650 or 2X18350 30.00 + 4.00 ship 1st class
I use a small wire cutting pliers to make relief cuts around the case, then just break off the sections. This is the same way I do for a BRD-209/405nm sleds. Then after you figure out the size diode press it into to the selected 12mm module put it in a larger heat sink and hook it up to your...
Thank you for the confidence buddy I try my best there's just sometime to many hours in a day, Maybe when I retire I will have more time to spend machining stuff. Like I said I just ordered two more S2+ hosts to do tat larger sink on the OD.
hi Red, Yes that would work also the only reason I didn't do it that way is that the shell of the host is thin and would have to use a 4-40 x1/6 set screw so it wouldn't protrude out so much. I have made other hosts like you just described but the walls were thicker.
Hi Red, The only other way would be tun the lip off completely then machine the sink diameter to a tight tolerance almost to use a little force to seat it , then add a set screw for added strength . Then adjust the pill snug behind the sink.
I agree these convoys are built very well and the brass pills are for a flexible modification . you can either sink the driver in the pill or use it as a contact board, spring and wired. And they contact the copper heat sink well to. I had to make a choice on the blue one . AL with...
Wow you finllyhad some time to build into these hosts great job buddy . The 7475 520 goes great with the White PC host too.
The pen are incredible and an awesome choice of diodes and drivers. The pics are great and thank you for sharing these builds with us here at LPF.
Hi, Here is another Convoy but the S2+ version SS latching switch and upgraded lanyard loop.
Full copper sink and adapter prewired ready to drop in a DTR 12mm module of your choice.
And some pics of the S2 & the S2+ side by side. This also holds 2X18350 / 1X18650 batteries.
Hi, These S2 Covoys are a great host, this one I widened the front of the bezel by turning off the lip on it . That gave me a larger diameter for the copper sink. More copper the better I say. I have one more in blue that should go well with a copper sink to . I have cases of different lasers...

Here is a Convoy full copper extended sink and adapter , prewired to drop in a DTR 12mm module.
1X18650 / 2X18350 batteries . The copper sink gives this host a nice heavy feeling and adds to the cooling of the diode.
Thanks for looking
