CNC solder paste/pick n place

Just when I thought I’d seen most of the CNC mods out there, [Steve Ciciora] (who happens to be one of the driving forces behind the killacycle) sent in his diy solder paste dispenser *and* his diy pick and place machine. Both are extensions of his CNC taig mill. Hopefully [steve] will put up some more details of his mill mods.

    This is really amazing. I wish I had one of these, I have a very unsteady hand. Oh well.

  4. Hello1024 says:

    video links dead, and there doesn’t seem to be anything but a sentance of text and no pics to see.

  5. MacGyver says:

    Pretty darn slow… would be nice to see the machine zip from one place to another, then slow down for each action (pick up part, center it, etc.).

    Other than that Great Work!

    don’t understand the complaints. I was able to watch all of these videos about 10hours ago, in Ubuntu.

    Spyingwind, you have mplayer plugins installed?

  10. akmixdown says:

    I watched both videos under linux with mplayer. No problem at all.
