i've been away from lasers for a few years so i've lost touch with the people here. i'd like to buy an old used host i could drop a 12 mm module from dtr into. i'm going for a 405 16x diode run at ~500 mW used for short <60 sec runtimes so massive heat sink not needed. ideally i'd just want to solder 2 leads from the driver and burn.
i had a lot of lasers at one time. still have a few hene's and stuff, but no balloon popper.

Welcome back:beer:
The best and quickest and cheapest right now would be to look at "Lifetime17" sales threads.
He has ton's of 2 wire connect plug and play's and usually something simple and in your budget like your looking for..

Why not use this as your host for the 405nm diode? I am not as familiar with it as I am with a similar host by sinner called the Envy. They seem to be close to the same thing.
