Post-it notes.

Takes a couple of minutes.

I had this idea too, but I found out that the Laser diods are not exactly just aligned to the casing

This may be a stupid question, but how do the two parts fit together?

Those are 2 different sizes. They don't fit together.

Nice idea, just wondering how much play you have once installed on the tube? is it trust-able stable to avoid misalignment?
Thanks anyway for your sharing.

It gives you a good understanding how to calibrate the laser. Unfortunately I haven't managed to align it with the actual laser path. It depends how accurate you can put it on the tube end I guess. Anyhow I got some better practice in calibrating the beam so it was easier to get the CO2 laser beam adjusted correctly.

Hi, what are the dimensions of the laser diode you used?

Hi, it has about 6mm and is with driver so it just needs 5V to operate.
