Amazing Tool!
This is my new favorite tool in my workshop. SMD electronics are now as easy as traditional TH for me. Now I can take my electronics projects to much smaller cheaper places. I love it!
Best machinerie to becommentariëren happy
Almost inmissible now already. How did we do it all years without this very small handy machine. I like the extruder very much, it is making working with my small smd components so much easier and more comfortabel. One of my best kickstarter bus!
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!
Fantastic product !
This is absolutely fantastic product ! I really love it. I've backed Kickstarter project and now I have ordered two more I-Extruders for my work lab.
Big thanks to I-Extruder team for such a great job and fantastic support.
Very compact and we'll made
I have used other paste dispenser and suction tools, but this beats all of them in terms of compactness, ease of use and build quality. Very easy to set-up and become productive with it in a few minutes.
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 produit
Je vais pas dire que ce produit a changé ma vie mais pas loin. En tout cas celle de mes oreilles car le compresseur du systeme que j'utilisai precedemment etait plutot agressif !
La solution permet une depose precise et rapide de patte pour de petits protos. Elle n'est pas encombrante.
Seul petit point d'attention le produit peut chauffer fortement meme eteint si le pas a pas et dans une mauvaise position. Donc penser a le debrancher hors utilisation.
Joy
What can i say, this tool beats my expectations. I have been using it for dispensing glue for fabricating acylic products, and it has completly revolutionalised the gluing process, no more pools of glue that suddenly happen when giving to much pressure to the syringe, which ruin the athetics of the finished product. No more reject products!!, YET :)
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.
