Building my first high powered laser(1w) and I would like to know if there is like an online distributor or something of such or do I just buy a flashlight to use as a host? And what about the heatsink, since much heat would be generated, how would I find a heatsink to fit in a host?

Please post something in the welcome section introducing yourself..

Those who have a basic understanding of what is needed in a laser host (accessible pill, large enough for heatsink, etc) sometimes browse DX for hosts to get custom heatsinks for, and later, lasers.

Or you can go to jayrob and get one of his kits.

Please get glasses, a 1W laser is nothing to mess around with. It's not a game...

if you took the time to use the search button and have a look around the forum you'd discover that there are plenty of very useful threads that answer your question

for example, for the hosts

http://laserpointerforums.com/f44/looking-host-click-me-51445.html

and for the heatsinks

http://laserpointerforums.com/f64/eudaimonium-s-machine-shop-73749.html

use the search button before asking questions as 99% of the time they've already been answered on another thread, if you take the time to find things out yourself you'll gain a much better understanding
