Hi,

I've lurked on this site for a while, helping my son gain knowledge to build a laser. I'm a huge proponent of safety and picked up a pair of eye protection glasses from Survival Laser - you don't get a second chance with your eyes. The tail cap of the laser is locked away too - not used unless I am present.

I have too many hobbies, one of which is electronics. Over the past year or so I have been working an a project to help with electronics projects. It is called PCBGRIP, and effectively is a tool that not only holds PCBs (printed circuit boards) but also holds anything else you need to help you with your electronics project. I actually used PCBGRIP to help align the driver wires to the diode leads when we soldered. in the last few days I have launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to make PCBGRIP a reality.

Thought I drop by and introduce myself.
Jason

Sounds like an interesting pitch. Always could use an extra hand.
Welcome to the party.

Welcome!

As someone who makes a LOT of circuits I'm really quite interested in your device. It definitely looks better than my Panavise. I love how it has an adjustable height above the base, as that is the main issue I have with the panavise; it is only 2 inches above the tabletop and it is nearly 12 inches wide so while the joint mechanics allow you to rotate your work piece over in the jaws, simple physics do not allow such. So I wind up having to remove the workpiece from the jaws, flip it, and reseat it in the jaws. Also, those hold downs you have that look like they're spring loaded or just able to be set on an angle so they hold the component against the board is genius.

If I had money to spare I'd invest in your kickstarter for sure.
