Default replacing arcane 2.0 module - first time doing laser surgery!

I just recently received an Arcane 2.0 after the typical scifi laser shipping and while I ordered a 7W, I actually got a laser that is around 1.5W or so. I was advised to take the driver out and replace it with one from DTR's shop. my questions are,
1) How do you take out the driver from this thing's heat sink? http://youtu.be/Z91_4Si26_Y (video of my laser module for reference)
2) Which specific driver should I order from DTR that would work and fit? it's measuring about 40mm long and 9mm wide (just the diode inside not the whole heat sink). I was looking at the 6W NWBM44 450nm on DTR but I have no idea how it'll fit and it seems to be the only 6W+ on the site.

A clue would be the set screw in the side. Find the Allen wrench that fits it. You may need to try both English and metric.

Default Re: replacing arcane 2.0 module - first time doing laser surgery!

Melt those two clumps of solder on the back and pull the spring board genyly back, loosen the set screw near the front and put in a junk lens and see if you can gently push it all out the back from the front, that would be my guess.

His driver could be clamped down but somehow I doubt it.

You can pull the 12 mm module forward and see if there is enough wire slack, but I would cut out the module and shove the rest out the back, his drivers look like flashlight crap anyway, are they 3 or 5 mode deals, if they are they are probably hard on the diodes, you may have an old 1.5 watt used diode, who knows, near the end anything he did was cobbled together from what I have seen.

I was able to get the module (and driver) out of my dead 520nm Arcane without melting anything. I think I just tapped on the driver to get it out (there was very little solder on mine) and the set screw was easy to remove.

awesome! it's good to hear that this won't be the most hardcore of laser surgeries to perform. Mine has enough solder in the way to prevent tapping
Do you happen to remember the measurements of what the diode is? I'll probably be able to get my hands on a soldering iron tomorrow but I wanna be sure I order the right part if possible! The 6W+ NUBM44 from DTR seems to be in the direction... but I'm not 100% sure lol

well as Joker stated before that he bought modules from DTR so a new module should fit right in.
