jeewhiz- it was hard enough to get all that stuff into those tiny places

capacitor, 1n4001 and 4 Ohm resistor all went inside the aixiz- THAT was tricky 8-)

LM317 and some wires weren't small enough to fit in the head AND keep the module straight... anybody tied cutting off the tab on the LM317?

so, it's not pretty, but it burns pretty good!

cutting off the tab is fine, it's only there for heat dissipation
