This "press fit tool" you mention, do I really need that? How can I find them and what do they even look like?

Chrisbee gave you the link, but yes, they are good to have. There are other ways to press the diode but the press tools make it easy and reliable.

You'll need a vice to a press it with too ... :D

The price is insane. If this is really necessary, I will make my own one.

$25 really isn't too bad for what it is. That'll get you the press tool, the extraction tool (super handy!) and the brass alignment collar.

But you can always make your own too.
