I can’t drum like Bucket Man, but I do realize the power of using accessible items to save time and add value. Transparent tape and box-cutter refills are 2 of my favorite office supplies for laboratory improvision. Tape can be used to hold things in place, even during some reflow profiles. Razor blades and tape combine to form a flux tray and doctor blade for component dipping when you need one in a pinch. When you’re prototyping a new assembly process, keep in mind that you can use tricks like this while you are waiting for some long lead-time machined parts to arrive.
Thank you for the inspiration Bucket Man!
