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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 !

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!
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 :)
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.
