solder-buddy-partsRecently suggested by one of our Twitter followers, is a motorised solder dispenser.

It’s beauty is in its simplicity and after seeing it in action you’re left asking the question where can I buy one? I am surprised that all makers don’t have one of these!

Maybe after this we all will…

With the touch of a button, solder is dispensed from a wand and instantly ready for use.

It is built using ABS plastic, cut and glued together to form the body. The solder is fed down an old brake cable, using a servo motor to drive it through.
Each step of the project is very well documented, and reading through the comments, others have had success in making their own solder buddy!

It’s no surprise that the maker who came up with this (Jude Pullen) is a Design Engineer working for Dyson!
