    Hi there,

    I need some help from someone who has experience soldering laser diodes.

    I have recently bought a laser cutter as a kit (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mrbeam/mr-beam-a-portable-laser-cutter-and-engraver-kit) but managed to fry the laser diode while constructing it.

    I have bought a couple of replacement diodes and tried to resolder the connections but it seems like I have managed to overheat the diode while soldering.

    If there is anyone who has experience with this and thinks they might be able to help me out I would be willing to pay for the assistance.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    Is it a big chunk of copper/crystal, or is it in a package with leads?
    If its the former, you’ll need to preheat the job to about 80 degree’s before you solder it.
    Either way, we should have the gear to do the job. Drop me a PM..
