That's a pretty sweet looking host!

Just don't drop it in the snow, you'll loose it!:gj:

Hey, thanks :) I was pretty proud of it.

Should mention - it's a metal host. Even though it kind of looks plastic in the photos. It's a basic WF501B host. Wonder if Moh knows that his hotlights heatsinks are absolutely PERFECT fits for that super common flashlight???

(well, not quite perfect, they're actually a bit too tall to fully thread the crown on - but otherwise!)

It feels great to make you own handheld laser!
Matt does a very good job at a fair price as well.

Again nice build there! :beer:

I did, thanks to the suggestions in that thread :)

As a follow-up, do you know of a way to limit that driver to 550mA so that I could run a 405nm from it?

IE - is there a resistor that is easy to change?

yeah I'm beginning to find that a lot of these host's use the same measurements.
That is an awesome host though :D
