Would you mind telling us how you cold extract them ABarnett? Or maybe a PM if you don't want on here?
Wow great job, that's what I'm working on right now, covering the lenses.Yeah I'm about to start chopping. I wanted to double wrap the diodes before I started. I used a plastic type masking tape to cover the window and made a little bubble so the tape won't leave a residue of adhesive. Then made the caps from shrink tube. Now I can go at it without having to worry to much.
You mean cut right along the line of the bottom of the diode where the pins start? then pry the diode out? that might work! just be careful not to bend the diode frame.I know about popped windows
I think I can use my metal carbide metal cutting blace on my table saw and rip a 1/8 inch wide grove the depth in my pic above at the bond line between the diode and block, just right down the side and with a sharpened screwdriver pop them out through that cut.
