[1424] DIY SMD Hold Down

DIY SMD Hold Down

Fran Blanche (of Frantone) posted some pictures of a clever device to hold down SMD chips while you solder them in place. I had planned on building such a device that used weights to stabilize the probe, but her hack is so much better!

A dental pick, a couple of screws, block of wood and rubber bands are all you need to make this tool. Check it out on Fran’s page.

I had planned on making a video to explain single and split supplies for opamps, but Alan Wolke has already made one that contains most of the points relevant to pedal construction. Check it out!
