Hey I am planning to build a 520nm 200mW laser using one of DTR's https://sites.google.com/site/dtrlpf/home/diodes/osram-plp520 at $115.My question is would this host work? Survival Laser C6 Host Assembly And how would I put the module inside of it. Thanks in advance! Im assuming you just press fit the module into the copper heatsink, tighten the module with the wrench and out the heatsink to the body. Am I correct?

Yes, it would work. But you need something like this for it to work. Other than that it's very easy. Just fit the module inside the heatsink, tighten it with the screw, solder two wires and put everything together.

Oh ya totally forgot about Budget Beams bought one of their XML-T6 Kits before. So I would need a WF-501B shell then buy one of their Heatsinks that fit in it and thats it? Or would I still need a 501B Driver pill? Sorry for all the question I am still new to building lasers.
