Having the correct tool makes any job easier and I recently found two tools that make working with the Aixiz lens assembly much less frustrating. A gentleman by the name Brandon, from Microtek Illumination machines them and they work wonderfully.

My first attempt at the Jayrob 405-G-1 Glass Lens Mod was a frustrating disaster. I tried using a flathead screwdriver to disassemble a brass Aixiz assembly but only ended up mangling the threaded retaining ring. I thought that the assembly was trashed beyond redemption, a total loss, but with the Lens Removal Tool I was actually able to get that *&^%$#@ stripped-out ring unscrewed with very little difficulty.

The Lens Removal Tool is machined from stainless steel.

If you have an Aixiz module but lost your focus ring or you use the Lasers4u module then you know that adjusting the focus is kind of a pain in the ass. It requires that you use a screwdriver and that means you can't actually see the dot as you are attempting to focus. There is a better solution... a custom made Aixiz Module Lens Adjusting Tool (think screwdriver with a hole down the center).

The Lens Adjusting Tool is machined from aluminum.

Brandon also does custom work. (The lens removal tool was my idea :) ) If you need something turned up on the lathe or machined in the mill, shoot him an email and ask for a price quote.

I was using my AixiZ lens adjusting tool this morning to focus the lens in a WL Sonar bluray repair job I finished last night. I was thinking about how easy it made a normally troublesome job. I realized that I had never posted a follow-up here.

This is a very useful little tool. When you are using one of these hosts, that have the lens set deeply in the host, your fingers are always in the way when trying to focus it. With the 8X, 10X, and 12X this is not only a hassle, it can also be painful ;)

This little focus tool makes the job easy, fast, and painless

It is a fine addition to my toolbox

Peace,
dave
