Oh help me Michael Knight! So this started yesterday and I just finished a box of 20 "badges" (gotta be careful around here what to call badge and what not). Some conclusions for the next badge, if I ever tend to be so crazy:

I stole the idea of processing from tymkrs.com where they put together 10 badges at a time with the help of a lazy Susan. Pretty cool idea and it worked great (unless I forgot I can rotate the assembly line). 

So 7 hours of production and I was able to take this picture: 

Now I'm off to @Tindie and see that I can put up a store etc. I don't have 0603 resistors for kits yet, once they're here I will put up kits as well. Any tindie tips?

That's almost like a conveyor belt, shame you can't clone yourself to man multiple stations along it. Perhaps you could hire some students and set up a real sweat shop!

next round is going to be solder paste and reflow from the start. Had to reflow every LED and resistor again anyway.
