just go and buy a rckstr driver or a flexdrive, you can order them on a pre-set current already.

but just a piece of advice, learn to set the driver also on yoru own...

Have a nice day..

check the buy and sell section.. there are drivers out there..

They all work for me except the AixiZ link.

Go to the "Buy, Sell, Trade" section and you will find everything you need.

Also check out the DIY section (click the banner in my sig). There are a few more links to similar tutorials there.

I dont get it.

He charges $12 for any international orders of complete lasers, but $26 for a driver.

http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/da...ide-42103.html

Me thinks you are getting ripped off.

FlexDrive = $3 shipping...
http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/la...ens-22502.html

Rkcstr Diver = Under $5

Are you saying that he wants to charge you $28 for shipping IN ADDITION to the cost of the driver ?!?

A flat rate priority envelope to you (6-10 days) costs $13. First class (slow mail) should cost no more than $5 to you for this.

Send me a PM. I'll fix you up

Avoid Tyler, the scam artist .

Peace,
dave

**EDIT** @ TJ -- The Rkcstr is $15 with shipping for an assembled driver

Few lil errors u might wanna fix in op..

Next pull out the laser diode in its mini heatsink, you may have to put a little force into breaking it off from the rest of the sled. Be careful not to touch the diode during extracting because the glass window on the from can break easily

After that pull the diode in its mine heatsink out by grabbing the little ribbon cable and pulling on it.

Btw use the [yt] tags for youtube videos.. just put [yt.] [/yt.] and this in the middle DVugSGldXZ8

that will solve everything!

BTW yes i know this is an old thread but if its getting reffer to.... may as well be typo free!

Thanks for pointing out the typos, I wrote this tutorial a year and a half ago so there probably are even more typos.
