We don’t want to hype this solder TOO much, but this could possibly be the best solder in the world. There, we’ve said it. This is a special blend made specifically for us and we love it. It all started as a quest to find the best solder to use in our production process and en...

SF-TOL-13203

The Solder Vacuum, a great (and sometimes under appreciated) little tool for solder rework. It allows you to pull the molten solder out of a connection or via with ease. To use it you simply depress the plunger, heat up your solder, place the nozzle over the solder you want to...

SF-TOL-12078

These needle tipped multimeter probes are great for attaching to multimeters, power supplies, oscilloscopes, function generators, etc. Not only can these make a good replacement for any multimeter probes you have now that are damaged or worn, but thanks to the needle tip, thes...

AF-2075

If you've started designing your own PCBs in Eagle or KiCad and want to make your PCB a reality, you may end up with a CNC mill that can route out PCBs by cutting away the copper trace outlines. We initially ordered these end mills for our use with an Othermill but they will l...

These plastic Flexible Coolant Pipes have been primarily used to spray refrigeration or washing fluid for machine tools but, thanks to their articulation, they can be used in a multitude of different ways as well. We use them as extra arms for our third hand.

PL-1084

Gearmotor with bracket and hub.

PL-1086

These plastic mounting brackets allow you to easily and securely mount the ubiquitous 10 mm × 12 mm × 26 mm metal gearhead motors first popularized by Sanyo’s 12GN series (e.g. NA1S…NA3S), such as our micro metal gearmotors. We offer these brackets in black plastic and white ...

AF-3523

We're always digging around for various test lines to use with our power supply - whether we're checking current draw of our Feather, or trying out new LED samples. We picked up one of these and its so handy we use it all the time now. It's compact and has three of the most us...

SF-TOL-11650

This is a very simple fixed temp, quick heating, 30W 230VAC soldering iron. We really enjoy using the more expensive irons, but if you really need a cheap iron for your tool box, this lovely iron is a good choice. This is a low-cost iron and it works! But it doesn’t come with ...

AF-151

The best mini-vise for working on smaller PCBs (2.875" or less in one dimension)! The jaws are strong plastic that wont damage the PCB and doesn't mind if you hit it with the soldering iron by accident. Made in the USA.

SF-TOL-12942

The Bus Pirate v3.6a, created by Ian Lesnet, is a troubleshooting tool that communicates between a PC and any embedded device over 1-wire, 2-wire, 3-wire, UART, I2C, SPI, and HD44780 LCD protocols - all at voltages from 0-5.5VDC. This product eliminates a ton of early prototyp...

SF-TOL-12967

It seems like everything plugs in to your computer these days, and this digital multimeter is no exception. This auto-ranging multimeter will test AC and DC voltage and current as well as capacitance, resistance, frequency and even temperature. It features a large, easily read...

AF-1359

These tweezers are perfect for anyone who does a lot of work with SMD components (and hey, who isn't these days?) Use these instead of squinting and trying to use clumsy multimeter probes to detect an LED's color, polarity or resistor/cap value! The multimeter 'probes' are the...

AF-2660

Removing SMD parts more complex than a resistor or SOT-23 can be a real bear. You want to get the part off without damaging traces, and if possible, without damaging the part either. You could haul out your hot air tool or you could go in surgically with this handy SMD Removal...

AF-705

Put a voltage meter anywhere with this very handy display. These are often used by RC hobbyists for keeping track of batteries but we thought it would be great on a breadboard or enclosure. This is the 3-wire version of the volt meter, two wires are used to power it and the th...
