Hi,Good call on the set screw, as I was reading the OP I was wondering if you did that mod yourself or did you order it pre taped.
I once was rushing a build with this exact host. I put the whole host in the vice and tried to press the module in. I didn't have the tail cap on so it crumble the whole rear tail switch in (a piece of cardboard did nothing to prevent this). I scrapped the whole thing.
Anyways if you Dremel too much I've used aluminum foil as a spacer. Little arctic silver 5 and you're golden. ;-) I don't think this is optimal though.
Nice work with this, it fills a power-to-pen void well.
I used the dremmel but i took my time little be little very slow and keep testing the id every so often until the module slides in with minimal pressure . It takes time but like any of my builds i go slow. Press fits scare me because that means permanent, and i don't like that just in case . bore out a small amount and test repeat again. Don't give-up buddy try it again i know you can do it and you will be satisfied with your results.
