Thanks, the host is actually the thing I'm most curious about since the pictures on the website aren't that great. I'd love to see some more pictures of your 405 in the same style. How's the heatsink/duty cycle on that one?I like O-Like but I could not get an order to go through a couple days ago.
Have you been able to place an order lately?
In answer to your question, the laser should work just fine, I have that same housing with a 400mw 405nm in it, it's a good housing for a 1w or less diode, waterproof too with a double o-ring seal on the front and on the focus shaft.
It has an AR coated waterproof dust window in the front.
My 405 in that housing from O-like has been a good one.
p.s. I would get the EMS shipping.....Do show it off if you get it, I might order one as well.
ALSO my 405 is positive towards the tail so I mark inside my caps with a marker.
Just tried placing an order on the site, it didn't work just like RedCowboy described..What's the best email address to use to get into contact with them?You gotta email them and susie will send you a paypal invoice.
I last bought from them around 4 months ago and got all my items without issue. Shipping took a little over a month, but it wasn't 'sci-fi' bad or anything.Just tried placing an order on the site, it didn't work just like RedCowboy described..What's the best email address to use to get into contact with them?
Also, I'm just now seeing some threads on here warning against buying from O-like from 2012. Is it still a good place to purchase stuff from? This will be my first time buying from them.
