Should be nominated for Invention of the year
I-Extruder dispenser should be nominated for Invention of the year.
It's simply incredible - fully configurable dispenser and pick n' place tool packed into such small and lightweight device!
Greetings from Japan.
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.
Perfect for veterinary medicine
I raise hampsters for a living and being the horny bastards they are I have to deal with their STDs on a regular basis. Using topical medicines is hard because their private parts are so sensitive and they'll claw and bite you so much so getting the exact right amount applied to their willies/coochies is an absolute must. I'm happy to say that using the I-Extruder I can handle these buggers with ease now. I don't have to look for hamster-sized condoms anymore.
Perfect Product
I really love this new tool.
Got my I-Extruder via Kickstarter.
Thank you very much, I-Extruder team.
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.
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!
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!
I love things that are well made
I-Extruder dispenser is very well engineered and the build quality is simply amazing.
it's a real time-saver for PCB prototyping. The plastic tapered tips that comes with it , are easy to use for solder paste dispensing. I've already used i-extruder for 0805 and 0603 components with perfect results.
Very good product, i highly recommend it !

Well made product that fills an old gap in the maker / hobby market
Received the i-Extruder pack last week. It was well packed with some extras already included in the base package (pick and place piston and cups). The tool was also smaller than expected. This is good news, because it makes it better suited to use under a microscope. First setup was easy, but it takes some time to find the optimal settings for the material used. It's a good idea to use the paste sold (for a reasonable price) by the designers because setup other solder paste was a bit of a hit and miss. Also the offered paste comes pre-filled in a compatible dispenser which also saves the filling chore. After finding the optimal settings the operation is pretty straight forward, altough people with large(r) hand or fingers would benefit from getting a foot pedal as the dispensing buttons are close together. All in all a good product for an affordable price that smartly fills a gap in the hobby market.
