I don't know if it's striped or what. It worked earlier, and now the cap is stuck on my Thor H series(or knock off) I didn't over screw it and I don't think I cross-threaded? Any help or suggestions?
Edit: finally got it removed.

Star caps are usually plastic so it's easy to strip. Not what I really wanted to say though.
There is no Thor "knock off".. They are all the same laser made in China which vendors sometimes put their own name on..;)

The recent star caps that have come out that have silver paint over the plastic are of a much cheaper quality than earlier ones used on the 303 style lasers. I have both and the difference is obvious.

Groovie, thanks for the heads up. When my spare comes I would like to send one or two lasers to you to check out. I wanna wait until my extra H comes in so I can still use one while I wait.

Not a problem. I'm always here to help members with their laser questions and have lots of test equipment to measure these kinds of things. You will only have to pay for the shipping. ;)
