Diode Decanning Tool

Hi, Folks just want to share a few pics of a great tool . Probably everyone knows about this tool. But i think it's worth the pics at least. This is an awesome devise Will come in handy,but i hope it never comes to that. Hey better to "Have and not need than to need and not have".... Well enjoy guys and gals...
I practiced on some dead diodes i had it works great It's stop adjustable for depth ..

Re: Diode Decanning Tool

Nice tool. Looks almost like a can opener.

Can you remove cans while the diode is pressed into an Aixiz module?

Thanks,

Re: Diode Decanning Tool

Hi,
@ Alaskan It sure does make it easy, hey a great investment i say. I'll try it on a M140 diode i have , burnt window but doesn't effect the integrity of the beam profile go figure. Glad you like Buddy thank you for looking..
@ Jersa, Yes it does look like a can opener and it also opens diode cans. It's a Ronco decanning tool..

The famous Veg-O-Matic sure could.

It was a golden age of high tech advancements.
