I’ve lost the use of one hand due to a stroke
I’m trying to find a way to still solder stuff, wires, header pins and chips onto pcbs but nothing as small as SMD
So far I’ve found these options. Are thoughts on them and where I could buy them?
Hakko 373 Solder Wire Self Feeder
Any other suggestions?
Sorry to hear that, but glad to hear you’re not letting it stop you! I know you sent us some emails but I thought I’d share the result of that here for anyone else looking.
At the moment we’re seeing if we can source a Hakko FX-8803 and Hakko C1437 holder, along with a Hakko FX-888D.
If someone wanted to go the DIY route, they might like to look into making a kind of soldering gauntlet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSWzYG6eigA
