it's few months ago when I came across the plastic handle with tacky head in three different sizes originally used by modellers for glueying and hadling the tiny metal parts.
It seemed to be very interresting and I got an idea to use it instead of tweezers for SMD parts soldering and handling during the PCB assembling.
A simple but very effective idea for placing SMD parts and tiny electronics parts when PCB assembly or electronics bench work is here...
All electronics, modellers, ham radio, laboratory, science and technology enthusiasts, professionals and bench operators who have had troubles picking up and accurately placing the SMD, then just as importantly releasing SMD small parts has maybe the solution over here.
Tweezers seem to launch small pieces as often as they place them but the parts fall off half the time before they reach their target.
The Sticky Pen tool will address this small parts dilemma with a simple but very effective and reusable solution. Three sizes are available - Fine, Medium and Large.
Using the tool could not be easier. Pick it to it's place, heat up quickly with soldering tip the paste and that's it. Each tool comes with a clear plastic cover for the tip. This will help keep the tip clean.
If the heads get dirty or they lose their tack, they may be restored by simply running them under warm tap water and allowing them to air dry. If they are really gummed up, you could also roll the head back and forth on clear adhesive tape.
I tried to use the Sticky Pen in my home lab as same as in daily job - professional lab and after assembling several SMD parts in different sizes I can say... it works nice!
Stick Pen tools are simple but very useful and reusable instruments for all types of electronics, soldering, assembly, modeling etc.
I can highly recommend them.
