total s&h to 73801? id be interested
Hmm… The diode doesn't seem to stay in the module after I've pressed it in. Maybe my module is damaged after I hammered the old diode out with a nail. Can't see any scratches/damage though. We'll se when my new modules arrive. Maybe I'll have to shorten the edges of the press with a file.
Edit: I just realized the inside part were loose. I just had to use a clamp.
:bumpit:You can do what is called "staking" with the diode in place in the Aixiz module take a very sharp center punch and make little dimples in the Aixiz module about 1/64" away from the diodes edge this will expand the metal in the Aixiz module and cause it to grab your diode start out with easy hits on the center punch make about 8-10 dimples around the diode if it still falls out do it again and hit a little harder. rember to sit this on a vise or something heavy and hard you don't want it bouncing when you tap the punch. good luck !!!
