Thanks! awesome video.. I am going to be harvesting a couple from GGW sled, it seems to me that your method will work well for harvesting all diodes? unless there are other methods that are better for different sleds?:bowdown:
I started with the LPC-815, so I'm already lucky lol, I was really shocked to find it open like that, I didn't know what 'open-cap' meant, the pics I saw were odd in themselves, then I actually saw that it really is open lol.
I've managed to get the LPC diode out using a vise and pliers to break away pieces of the heatsink without any filing. Takes a bit of effort to get right, but seeing al that metal dust flying off a file near an open can diode makes me a bit weary.
