When I received my laser from Jay the thumb screw was to tight and when I tried to adjust it the brass tube unscrewed. Once I realized this I got them apart and threaded the tube into the heat sink and was finally able to adjust the focusing lens.
Take your time and really pay attention to see what is turning. Once you get it adjusted you will have loads of success with a great product.
