Hi Everyone,

I recently tried building this pen, and had nothing but trouble.  I used Deal extreme and got the pens for about $3.40, 3 weeks later...  I have been trying to use the Vishay TSAL6400 and here are my dilemma's;

1. Like stated above I ruined the first two pens trying to remove the cap. I tried using Gaffers tape around the top, rubber bands, and shop towels.  The rubber bands worked best but still scratched the cap, other than shrink tubing, has anyone found a remedy?

2. Connecting the IRLED, sighhh... ruined the first one by burning the board. The second one I connected and tested... laser works, the IR works but it turns on and then off immediately. So does anyone has a video tutorial, or tips on how they assembled the pen?
