I leave it on, just to help stabilize the pins.(keep them from bending) during the pressing into the module. Also keeps them from breaking off, for the noobies.Pretty much covered all the bases--good emphasis on safety-gotta +rep you on this sir!!!:yh:
one question tho--any advantage or disavantage to removing the pink plastic part from the diode pins, in your opinion?
Does it help to seat the diode in the AixiZ module properly?
:thanks:for a job well done.
The only other concern I have would be it melting. But if your diode is getting that hot, you need better heat-sinking.
