Awesome Tool
I really love this new tool and I'm impressed with the quality of construction as well. This should last a long time. The only negative is the size of the OLED dispaly and the push buttons, they could have been made bigger to see and operate more clearly. With that being the only downside, this is a great tool. :)
Super Produkt !!!
Ein sehr gutes Produkt.
Einfach zu handhaben, präzise, vielseitig.
Die exakte Einstellung der Dosierung perfekt.
Auch die Möglichkeit schnell und unkompliziert die zu dosiernden Medien durch Tausch der Behälter zu wechseln ist genial.
Jederzeit würde ich dieses Produkt weiterepfehlen. :)
Well made...
I am very impressed with the quality of manufacture. Precision dies, good plastic selection, and quality machined parts. I expect to be using this very useful tool for many years. The only criticism is the size of the display and menu buttons. Ok for young guys with sharp eyes and skinny fingers but not for old workshop hacks with stubby digits.
It is the best tool I have been waiting for
I am very happy to use I-Extruder with my electrical hobby life. Usability of I-Extruder is best than the other competing products.

Most strong point is that possible to supply small amount of solder onto small PAD. Furthermore、it is Small, light, stable, quiet, multi function, Reasonable price.

Thank you Artline team.
Impressive Product
I discovered I-Extruder via Kickstarter and was really impressed with how well designed and thought out the product was. Communication throughout the campaign was impeccable. There have been 27 updates to date, and each one provided additional information about the status of build process. The team also handled a small customer service issue for me, which was the result of a mistake I made when completing a form. It was resolved quickly and politely.

I just recently received the finished product, and I'm very impressed with its build quality and packaging. I don't do much surface mount soldering, so I'm brainstorming the perfect project to give it a more thorough test.

Hands down, one of the best Kickstarter campaigns that I've supported.
i-Extruder is wonderful !
I backed the i-Extruder twice, once for the campaign that didn't make the goal, the second time for the one that DID make the goal. Since then, my i-Extruder has been sitting and waiting patiently for my projects to require it. That day was today.

I switched the type of flux I've been using (MG Chemicals liquid rosin flux) for Amtech NC-559-V2-TF Tacky Flux, recommended by Louis Rossmann in NYC, who uses it for board-level repairs on Apple motherboards. I love the stuff, but I got the big 30cc syringe, and it was just really unwieldy to use. So I pulled out the i-Extruder, filled a 10cc syringe and hooked everything up. It works perfectly, delivering just enough flux, then pulling back to keep more from oozing out. And since I do plan on getting into SMD components soon, it'll come in handy for solder paste application, too! (I have both hot air rework station AND a ReflowR programmable reflow plate, but haven't done enough SMD to really take advantage of them yet. But soon...)

This device is a real godsend, especially because I have difficulty with my hands due to a spinal injury. Squeezing the plunger on a syringe is possible, but painful, so this really helps me with my electronics work!

Thank you, and I hope you're having a lot of success! I just sang the praises of the i-Extruder to a worldwide mailing list of ham radio homebuilders and modders, so we'll see if they think so too and order some!
Best SMD tool on my bench.
The prospect of dabbing solder paste onto my boards with a toothpick was too much to bear, so I jumped at this Kickstarter.
Ten minutes playing with it and I was an old hand. Programming this thing is a breeze, and it feels solid in the hand with good ergonomics. I recommend the foot pedal. It allows you to lay down a really precise dab of paste right where you want it.
Solder paste placement is fast! You can do a small board in a few minutes with no mess at all. The pick and place lets you populate your board fast.
There is no downside with this product. It is quiet and feels good in the hand. There is no compressor noise since it uses a stepper motor for the drive.
This is the handiest SMD tool on my bench. If you are making your own boards then this is the must-have for your workplace, at home or on the job. Period.
The most useful tool for soldering
I-Extruder is the most useful tool for soldering. It's confortable to hold in the hand and dispenses solder easily. The best features are the XYZ stand and the foot pedal which free your hands to hold the board and the components. I definitely recommend it for your hobby projects.
That's a real "Made In France" quality product
That's a real "Made In France" quality product

I just received my I-Extruder pack with XYZ aluminum stand yesterday and I was very surprised, since I hadn't expected such a great quality of manufacturing !
That's a real "Made In France" quality, like it used to be many years ago.
Good job guys !

Great product!
This dispenser tool is fantastic! The quality of all components, including the optional XYZ stand is very high, the tool is versatile, well manufactured and easy to use. Although it looks pretty bulky on the pictures, it is actually lightweight and well balanced. I can highly recommend this tool.
