Short, fast fast solders. After you solder one lead, I'd probably let it cool before the other, so that the heat doesn't compound itself. I also generally unplug my soldering iron right before soldering the diode itself.
ahh I notice my radio shack station has a plug for a grounding line but no such cable, can trace volts enter from the iron into the diode or do you unplug so it dont spike in temp?

spikes -

And I don't know whether the physics/science is on my side or not, but I just do it because "why not?"

Basically, don't take any chances right? Cooler always = better with laser diodes. And less voltage spike potential, also a good thing

I don't have a clue when my LPM will get here. The tracking info on the website has not been updated since the LPM shipped 4 days ago. If its not here by Friday I must prolong this auction. I will keep everyone updated.

Considering you're in the US, I certainly don't mind waiting to have the laser tested, I don't think others will either.

Actually, I know a guy locally who has an LPM so if my LPM isn't here I will see if I can meet up with him. I don't know why I didn't think about that earlier.

Yeah it's not a big deal, just if you start it at $100, and people bid 1 cent higher at a time, you could get $100.50 for it, and had 50 bids go through, and at the last second ten people bid 5 cents or 1 dollar higher, and it's not really an auction

No big deal though, I am very happy with how my auction went!
