The chips no longer get caught up in the cutting tool during each pass and do not get deposited on the rails for cleaner, more accurate cuts. The dust shoe…

We get a lot of people asking us about our in-house prototyping and manufacturing processes.  We love sharing what we’ve learned in the trenches! Today’s topic is how to take a bunch of Amazon parts and make a low cost (< $75) adjustable DIY vacuum pickup tool (with a foot pedal) for doing manual pick and place. Why is this useful? It helps you prototype boards faster and with less effort!  In our tests, we were…
