I've been trying to figure out where to put my so6j 12x for some time now...

What's a great < $20 host that someone would be willing to make a massive < $20 heatsink for?

I want to push it up to around 700mW output and I want to overkill on the heatsink - if this is practical...

I've actually got a chunk of 1.5" round aluminum bar stock that I had intended to put in a maglight, with a 445 A140 but I haven't had the motivation to set my drill press up like a lathe - I'm sure it would be a disaster...
I could always mail a piece of the bar stock to someone if they'd be able to use it in my 12x 405nm project...

Thanks!

There's this other really cool guy, Eudaimonium, who made me a host before and I was thinking about asking him if he's up for making a bigger one for a larger host - I'm just not sure which host to ask him to make one for...and I guess I picked a boring topic to ask opinions on (and I guess I'm not very popular/don't get my ideas out very well).

I had wanted to use something like a 3C sized maglight, but I was told that it was a poor choice for a host (not sure why though).

I will contact Ehgemus tonight or tomorrow to see if he's made any large heatsinks that are easy to make since I don't want him to have to spend a lot of time working on it if he doesn't have to...
I would send him (or whomever) a chunk of aluminum to help keep his cost down if he can use it... if it's large enough that is! :p

Thanks again,

The SAiK SA-305 is what I'd recommend. Moh sells a $20 heatsink (although I think he's out. But request one and I'm sure he'd make it!) for it. Its a $16 flashlight. It runs off of 3xAA's but can be fit for a few battery combos for lithiums.

Yes, you could ask him too. Anybody with a lathe can make a sink. He lives in Europe. You should consider the shipping cost back and fort to him.

I PM'ed Ehgemus and I'll give him several few days to respond then I'll ask another person if he doesn't respond (or if he doesn't have time, etc)

Thanks again guys for the suggestions.... you've reminded me why I donate to the forum!
