Default TO18 diode insertion tool

Hi. Happened upon this piece of hardware @ Lowe's this evening. It's a brass tube, just shy of 5mm and nicely surrounds the pins on a standard TO18 laser diode. It allows you to put even pressure on the diode while protecting the pins. Best yet, you get enough tube to cut it down into several "tools".

Yep, I've heard of some of our more economically challenged members using pieces of old telescoping antennas and other random things found around the house/garage. Thanks for sharing your find!

Default Re: TO18 diode insertion tool

I myself use a big fat toy car axel to gently tap the diode in, though thisis with TO-5.
It was a big fat pain in the a$$ trying to tap the to-18 in though with that rod.

I must go to bunnings and see if i can get myself a brass rod, hopefully 5mm is enough for both to-5 and to-18
