I received the host and Al heatsink today and I have to say, it is awesome. I can't wait to get the diode pressed in and ready to go. The stand is also one of the best features of the host. now it is possible to aim the laser and have it remain focus one that spot instead of propping the laser up with books and wedging it in place. FP did an amazing job with the machining, and made a slight change to the design. Instead of sticking out of the front of the host, the heatsink is flush with the front, which I really like. I might get a few more of these and try my hand at machining the heatsinks myself, since they are fairly simple.
AWESOME job FP :gj:
Hey FP, do you have any of these hosts still floating around? I want to use one for a 445, but cant wait for it to arrive from DX. All I need is the host, I machined my own HS.
