Thanks. Yeah I found those. What I like about the thingy that Clive
uses is the 'backing' that he clips to it that holds the components
in place while he solders them and I've not found anything with
that feature. I guess I could make something (and probably will if
I can't find or
afford a made-up item).
I think it is :

available here for a silly price:
http://au.element14.com/cliff-electronic-components/wf1/assembly-jig-pcb-aluminium/dp/43976
That looks like it - thanks. The Element 14 URL didn't work for me
(perhaps becasue I'm in NZ and it's Aus?)

Nor me, and I'm in Aus. Searching for Cliff (no relation!) Electronic
Components worked though:

Thanks. Sweet Baby Jesus they're expensive! Likely made of platinum. :-/
Card, foam and masking tape it is then.

BigClive's youtube videos. You can see it here
https://youtu.be/nTQRRER1MOY?t=1186 He's fitting the PCB into it to
hold (small) through-hole components while he solders them. I've
searched AliExpress but didn't find any hits - maybe I'm using the
wrong search string or perhaps they don't sell them. Help appreciated.
I'm in New Zealand.

Cheers,



I modified a Panavice PCB holder years ago with some sheet aluminium
and some foam to operate like the one you've linked to. I found it
easier to do it without the additions.

The foam wasn't compliant enough for different height parts so I'd end
up doing say flat laid resistors first etc. Also the foam could push
parts over at an angle which for some parts meant re-soldering and
straightening them up. YMMV.


Thanks. I saw Clive using it in another video and he basically said the same
thing - do the components in groups according to height and solder taller
stuff by hand.

For batch work with lots of the same board, I've found a good
alternative using 3D printing.

Export the Silkscreen overlay with the component outlines from
your board into a 3D CAD program. Then use that plan to create
a block with hollows in it just the right depth for each
component. Initially I planed to put foam at the bottom of the
hollows to make up for any spacing inaccuracies, but it didn't
turn out to be nesessary.

It's even easier to use than the frame (which was an inspiration
for it) because it can handle all the different heights of
components at once. Just insert them, put the jig on top, turn
it upside-down, trim off the leads, and solder.


Interesting... Perhaps they could add generating that 3D model for the
block as a feature in Kicad.


Yes, and if you're lucky enough to be using components which they
have a model of for their 3D board previewer, you wouldn't even
have to input the component measurements.
