After my first crash and burn on making a N450 build. Waited for the wounds to heal, and had to take another crack at it. Well this time I got Photons, and lots of them. I'm using a3 element lens and the dot is surprisingly small. Think this diode is a winner!

There were a couple of thing new to this build in comparison to my previous lux-pro builds. I used a bb6 on this one which not qiute as tall as the sxd drivers. Which meant I could reuse the O-nut that held the contact board in. Made it a little cleaner of a build. Also had to use some double-sided Thermal Conductive tape to hold the driver in. I also used the tape as a padding/buffer between the bottom of the contact board and the top of the driver just to make sure nothing was going to touch something it shouldn't. To be on the safe side I tested the driver twice during this build. Once after I finished the pill and just before I soldered the diode on. Didn't want to take any chances. Over 4.7 watts at 4.0 amps not to shabby at all. Hopefully the pictures are pretty much in order so you get an idea of the step by step. Without further ado it's picture time! :)





























































































Ps; I updated the pictures, their a weeee bit clearer. :)

Well just re-posted the pics for the third time. Add some new ones. Used Imgur this time, it does seem to be quicker and easier. Hoping they stay up this time. Hope you enjoy the new pics. :)

Absolutely stunning :)
I wish I could rep you :(
Thanks so very much Richie. I really like this Lux-Pro builds. There relatively inexpensive. You can get the hosts on eBay for about 20.00 and the sink from Lifetime. All in all they make a pretty nice pocket build. They got some mass in the sink so you can get 30- 45 seconds run time out of a 44. Which really isn't that bad out of a unit you can carry on your pocket. :)
