Hi everyone, New member here.

I've recently started to take an interest in lasers, im wanting to make my own laser from scratch using a laser diode.
I've found one, I understand its powerful.
NICHIA NUBM08 φ9mm Blue 455nm 450nm 4.75W 5W Laser Diode LD for Laser Pointers (Tin-pin)

Now, I know I need a driver and a heat sink.
Im unsure if I can make a handheld laser with this diode as its powerful. If I can, Where can I find a suitable housing, driver & heatsink?
If not, what are my other options for a powerful handheld laser?

Thank you!

You should start small first. Check out the stickies for more information as it contains everything you need to know.

Thanks for the replies.

Looking at
NUBM08 455nm
25mm Copper Module W/Driver
In a G8 lens.

A 22mm heatsink
and then a housing to host two 18650 batteries.

My question is, is this Housing appropriate for the stuff selected above?

S4X™ Host Assembly​

A nubm08 (the common ones at least) and a G8 lens aren't compatible. You need something that isn't fitted with a Gball lens if you want to use any kind of lens.
