A quick flashback:
Tero sent me a beautiful host back in October last year with a green LED switch.
I asked people's opinion on whether to put an N520 or NDG7475 (to match the LED) or put an N465 in it.
See this thread:

Well, I loved it so much that I ended up buying another one from him.
The second one has a blue LED switch that Tero kindly put in for me.
This elevated the problem of matching the WL to the LED switch. :crackup:

Here's the original photo of the first host:



Well, today my order arrived from DTR with the diode modules that I'd ordered last week for these hosts. (Thanks Jordan, you're a legend :beer:).

Also in the order are two 490nm 12mm modules that I'll put in a couple of 510 Vape copper hosts that Rich made for me.



So, stay tuned, as I update this thread with my build progress.

PS: I've also got a couple of reviews to do of Billy's beautiful builds that I bought from him recently.

:beer:

N520 and NDG7475 are both great and very similar,ndg7475 seems to be little stronger,i suggest one of those two as you said to match the led ;) seems that you already got one 520nm diode so use the one that you already have :)

So no builds yet, Andrew? Just the modules that arrived? What the first two posts said. Shame on you. :eek: J/K

Post some pics soon :)

For some reason, bare modules and diodes are starting to seem strangely enamoring.

Think I might need LA(lasers anonymous)..

Put that host to good use

hehehe, sorry guys, didn't mean it as a tease. :beer:
I've had to wait till I could place an order for the diodes.
As soon as Jordan opened up shop again and put up the page, I ordered the N520 & N465.
Then a few days later the 490 appeared so I put another order in and Jordan was kind enough and quick enough to combine the orders and refund the shipping on the latter.
I didn't even have to ask him.
Legend !!
As I said, they arrived yesterday afternoon and so just took a photo as I unboxed the modules.

Now.... where did I put Tero's Hosts.... ??? :thinking:

:na::crackup:

Yep, you got a real mean streak there. :crackup:

Your going to love the N465. If merory serves Podo make a post saying his supply of n465’s has dried up. So I was thinking maybe they were not being manufactured anymore. (Food for thought). Best wishes with your builds. Looking forward to taking a grander at your new acquisitions. :)

hehehe, you think I was joking Bob! :crackup:
I really couldn't find them. :eek:
I put them in a safe place and forgot where I put them.
Thankfully I found them after I just spent an hour looking around.
Tero wants me to check the tolerance of the 25mm module.
Will have to do that later today.

Yeah the N465 and N520 are ones I really wanted for these builds.
Can't wait to see the beams.

:D

I want my money back from Donk. I paid him to hide them. Guess I should have bought him that second beer! :crackup:

Seriously though, they call this having a senior moment. :na:

Ha, I do that a lot!!
More important item is to me, to more "safer" place I usually put it... -And few weeks later I'll have to spend hour to find it.. It's very frustrating..
My wife says that I'm a master of hiding items from myself.. :D :D
