Hey, I was looking at building this for myself and found a way that might make this build even cheaper. You could use the following which is a 1/8" barb to a male luer lock. You could than 3d print a pen w/ a hollow center to run the tube through and would cover the barb up so that it just exposes the luer lock and provides a customized grip.
Are you sure? yes | no
Hi, Dave. Great tool, tutorial, and resource! I'm in the midst of upgrading my tool chain from hand soldering to reflow, and I'm just about to start work modding a toaster oven for a ControLeo2. A vacuum pick was next on the list, so I just ordered everything on your BOM and will put the boxes in the closet until I'm ready for them. It's a shame that most of the cool Luer lock tips aren't available individually (I'm only seeing 25 packs and such). If you have some extras you want to unload some, let me know.
hey! thanks for the feedback! i'll be doing some videos on solder paste dispenser and solder paste stencils soon! i use the luer lock tips with the solder paste dispenser and flux tubes as well, so i use them up pretty quickly. be sure to post a picture of your build and make sure you subscribe to the Dave's Dev Lab youtube channel!
