    In response to a request by AAH if it was possible to put together some sort of SMD manual feed dispenser I put together a modular design that can have as many or as few channels as needed.


    The units are all designed to clip over 6mm Aluminium rod, this rod measures 6.1 mm in diameter so smaller diameter threaded rod is likely to be a touch small.


    The current components designed are:
    Side brackets for spools:
    [attachimg=1]


    Standard resistor tape: 8mm wide
    [attachimg=2]


    12mm wide IC type tape on the left and 8mm on the right
    [attachimg=3]


    In addition I wanted a soldering Spool holder so did this
    [attachimg=4]


    This could be used by itself as well
    [attachimg=5]


    All this goes together something like this:
