Paste Press Solder Paste Dispenser

Easy to use Paste Press solder dispenser from Pieco.

It’s Cake Boss meets the world of DIY Printed Circuit Boards.

Pieco’s “Paste Press” solder paste dispenser makes applying all the super-fiddly solder bits onto your custom PCBs far simpler and less sploogy. The design from  NYC-based Pieco feels solid to the grip and dramatically reduced production time on my current Arduino knock-off PCB. More tasty tools like this, please!

Circuit Scribe: Draw Circuits Instantly

Ever sketch out an idea for a circuit on a napkin and then never did anything with it?

Now, with Circuit Scribe — a wonderful new project on Kickstarter — there’s no longer any excuse for getting those iterations going. Circuit Scribe is a rollerball pen that writes with conductive silver (and safe!) ink. It’s a marvelous way to draw your ideas for your circuits on a regular piece of paper, then immediately start testing the idea…using the paper sketch itself.

Goodbye breadboard, hello back-of-napkin prototyping.
