    Ahhh, so Sparkfun is the reason why the TI boosterpack is out of stock everywhere !!! YOU bought all the modules!!!

    Call me cynical, but I wonder how this would have panned out if there had not been a massive outcry on their own Facebook page???

    Would Fluke still have ‘done the right thing’?

    Damage control in my mind.

    I agree with the previous poster re: cookie jar…hand….

    When Robert said the customer was having cold solder joint issues I didn’t think he meant it quite this literally !!!

    I recently bought a used Quad 4C for about $12K loaded with 40 feeders, vibe feeder and up vision camera (in addition to the down facing camera).
    This uses a laser alignment component tracking which gives EXCELLENT placement without the need to move the component over the up facing camera (hence fast). It can place 0.65mm PSOPs without any trouble and can do 0402 with a modified nozzle.
    I have some very dense boards which it manages with no problem.
    It took a while for me to reverse engineer the file format since the base software is not very user friendly, but once I got past that it was plain sailing.
    The big issue I have at the moment though is getting my re-flow profile correct. It would be really useful to see a guide on re-flow issues and debug :) :) :)
    My discrete components re-flow great, but the larger PSOPs don’t seem to be flowing well (look like dry joints).
    It is a joy to watch running though :) a LOT quicker than my hand placement !!!

No public wish lists :(
