Testimonials

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.
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.
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.
Should be nominated for Invention of the year

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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
