So if anyone here has ever gone to a 5 below they have some nice stuff for cheap. I picked up a handheld mini mag lite knockoff that is full metal and nice. I'll post pics soon. It's got a button on the back and the battery pack is 4.5 volts. If I had a custom heat sink made and got it all setup whats the most power I could push through it? Also how would I go about wiring it? I would prefer putting a violet diode in it. Thanks, nate

heres some photos. the metal disk was inside the head and is for keeping the battery from flying out the tip.

DTR has a good selection and is also very helpful, he also has a list of heat sink vendors on his page :) http://laserpointerforums.com/f64/dtr-s-laser-shop-1-5w-2w-m140-diodes-45-shipped-us-61635.html

Nice looking host, don't have 5 Belows where I live though.

Pi R Squared posted a nice build thread recently...

Searching "build threads" should help. There are many excellent threads by some of our great Vets and members. Best of Luck Sir, look forward to an awesome build :beer:
