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 :)
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!
Perfect Product
I really love this new tool.
Got my I-Extruder via Kickstarter.
Thank you very much, I-Extruder team.
Good Good Good!!!
Beautiful product, sophisticated design, I recommend it for those who like me will use it for work.
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 !

Quality product.
I'm really happy with my I-Extruder... presently reworking my product assembly techniques to incorporate using this tool into the processes. It will save a boatload of time in the assemply of a couple of the pinball boards that I sell. Hats off to the team who created it - your dedication delivered a quality product!
The best tool that I have ever owned.
The best tool for PCB assembly that I have ever owned.
Fully configurable with cool and user friendly menu and it is almost absolutely silent.
And it also work for SMD components placement in pick and place mode!!!
That is a really neat idea to combine two device into a single one.

I do PCB prototyping for living, and my previous pneumatic dispenser (Chinese) , with air compressor, was a real nightmare.

For those who are interested, I strongly recommend you the get "advanced" pack. Pick&Place pen and the foot switch are really good addition to I-Extruder.
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!

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.
Very nicely done!
I've used an EFD dispenser for a long time, but it requires I keep a bottle of Argon around to drive it (no clean shop air in my lab). The argon is not expensive, but it is inconvienent, and if I want to move the EFD around, it's bulky, and has 3 cables plus the air line.

The i-Extruder, on the other hand, is highly portable (I use a USB battery pack sometimes), just as accurate and repeatable as the EFD, and LOT easier to use, and no 3000 PSI pony bottle of Argon to lug around.

This is truly a great product. Very well made, and the kind of project that other Kickstarter entries should use as a reference.
