And how do I decan it? Do I need any special tools?
I'm gonna try some new cleaning ideas.
Sulfuric Acid. :huh:
Can the laser be decaned without removing it from the housing assembly?
Guys, so I have now looked at the lens under a microscope 100x and can see the problem in full view.
Problem: Piece of something that won't come off the lens is still harboring there. I don't think it is a scratch because I used a tiny fiber prick across the surface to try to feel a roughness. None there. I think it is a smoke film on the glass.
Are there any other chemicals to try?
OKAY GUYS. THE NEWS IS:
M140 Diode Window Advanced Surgery Gone Wrong. It ended up the diode window was scratched, under 100x magnification.
I attempted what seemed to work. I drilled out the glass window. Everything was fine until things weren't fine. I accidently destroyed the diode inside.
Sucks for me.
Diode is dead.
If anyone with a large stock of M140 diodes feels sorry for the poor diode, and would like to send me one for free, PM me.:beer:
