Default need help with my first laser build?

I don't know where to start lol, the person i bought it from said it would be a 1 minute assembly... it's obviously not. It also said it would come with an instruction guide, well that didn't happen either... so i turn to you guys...

There is a list of things that it comes with on this page, here. This is the product i purchased.

it also says no soldering too so im hoping that that is true.

Here are pictures of what i am dealing with. * will add in a second *


sorry for being a noob* Came to this forum to learn.

Im pretty sure that heat sink is made to fit the diode in. Here is a video of how to install a diode for that heat sink 1.5w 1.7w mod and driver help - YouTube

Are the wire leads already soldered to the driver or is there plastic leads for you to connect?

ya nm, thats not what the description in the ebay auction shows. Looks like they lied and you have some soldering to do.... If you dont want to solder i would file a claim.

With that heat sink you use a screw to tighten down the module holding the diode.

If you want to give it a go check this out for some tips. Tutorial: 3405 Build Tips!

You will want to use flux and only keep the solder iron on leads for a second or 2 max.
