Some of you already know that recently a Youtube maker named Stephen Hawes built and open-sourced a very low-cost diy pick and place machine:
This got exciting, because the price point on a ‘typical’ DIY PnP machine is still $2-3k, and in kit form. This one OTOH, comes in at ~450 USD, with all the plans available on github:
@Arrgh, being a natural leader, pulled together a copy of the BOM, and we all started piling in what we could scrounge, given the super-simple design of much of this machine
so here we are, having ordered some of the parts, and realizing that this project will soon need a place to be managed, a blog post was needed.
Please let’s use this thread to further coordinate this exciting project, and build a DIY Pick & Place machine for VHS.
