In my previous post a few months back, I built my SMD manual parts picker using a fish tank air pump and a custom wood handle. There was one big oversight in that build that basically made the picker useless for most of the things I built it for. I failed to check before the build if the ball inflator needle I planned to use was actually small enough to pick up 0603 parts. Well, it wasn’t… So, that tool has mostly been collecting dust since the build. I’ve got a lot of 0603 parts to place in the next few weeks and it was time to get this baby working!
