One size lens fits all?

I am planning on machining a couple of heatsinks where the diode will be pressed directly into the heatsink, however before I do so, I was wondering if the lens people use here for the 5.6MM can diodes are pretty much all the same (M9 thread that is).

Im relying on the len's messurements from the O-like modules, as I will more then likely end up using the same dimentions for the lens insert and the len's housing itself. (although the heatsink is 1.5" wide).

Here is the O-like lens for referance:
405nm laser /445nm laser collimation lens/glasses lens [OLBLE] - $8.00 : Welcome to O-Like.com, Your source for laser products

Are these thread size and lens housing compatible with most/all lenses around the forum? (Aixiz, etc). (that is, when I thread the hole for the lens to go in, will one size fit all?)

Thanks.

If you use the "standard" lens holders that goes with Aixiz and similar modules, they are all M9x0.5mm, as far as i know.
