Is your cutter sharp? On firm snip should be all it takes. The other idea is a dremel tool or hack saw. The only reason I don't use the dowel method is because I am afraid of breaking it.phukudmss said:I don't know why but its taking me forever to snip it out!! What should i use if I want to tap it out? i dont have a wooden dowel at the moment..
Yup i have. this one is a red laser diode. Oh yea and that tool was what I was using.SenKat said:Definitely take your time with it - I KNOW it is frustrating, BIG time ! But, it will all be worth it, man ! Uhm...one thing...have you tested (I haven't scrolled back through the posts) to see if it IS the red diode, and not the IR one ? (GULP !) If not, uhm....now would be a good time to do that !
