In order to buils some other stuff, like the NURDled and the CC2850 zigbee modules, we need a more ergonomic method to populate the boards rather than manually populate them with a pair of tweasers. So I'm building a crude, but handy manual PNP machine

Stuff needed

  • Wood
  • USB Microscope
  • Tubing
  • Footswitch
  • Airpump
  • Pickup tool
  • Bearings
  • Misc
  • Z-axis linear bearing


  • Get tubing
  • Convert airpump to vacuumpump
  • Assemble X-axis
  • Assemble Y-axis
  • Assemble Z-axis
  • Mount USB microscope
  • Assemble vaccuum assembly
  • Optional: Nurdify
