Mine showed up!

very cool.  Holds my small PCBs exactly how I want, and very nice to work with my reflow iron.

One thing I hadn't realised is the base of the device is epoxy of some sort.. no idea at all what the temperature range of this is, so that means sitting it on a preheater is pretty much completely out, and I'm definitely going to want something else to use when I eventually get a preheater.. Standard panavise 301 model with the additional PCB holding head is looking a likely combo.

Is the item sent from EU, or outside EU?
- it's a neat product, and somewhat usefull imho.

I do have one idea, or request to make it super usefull for someone like me:
The top, where the spring and washer is located, can easily be flipped around - so a double sided board can be worked without the clamps has to be worked each time the board is flipped.
The height should not vary too much between top and bottom work side, if possible.
A strong magnet on the bottom item sticking to the base plate - and a weaker magnet in the top, with a ferromagnetic core embedded inside the spring/washer item?  :wtf:  :-+ :-+ :-+
(Yep, the PCBite has bitten and cracked itself on an iron toothache :-DD)

I just pledged for the Version 2.0 !

I don't need the new probes, but the larger plate will be welcome.

-- EDIT --

By the way, this kickstarter also permits to get the original package for the original Kickstarter price, which is nice for those that missed it and want it at a discount.

-- EDIT --

I created a new topic dedicated to the 2.0 KS : http://www.eevblog.com/forum/crowd-funded-projects/pcbite-2-0-a-new-kickstarter-for-an-upgraded-version/

cool!

I'm still getting use out of my original pcbites.

Not sure I personally need more, or probes, but the basic product is very solid and my go-to PCB holding solution for rework.

Definitely recommended to anyone who's watching this campaign and sitting on the fence.

For the protocol: I pledged for the full set (with four probes and the large base) and received it only a few days after I filled the survey. I haven't actually used it yet but it looks exactly like what I expected.
Thumbs up  :-+ !

I got my V2 set and it is great! :) much better than sliding helping hands

just remember surface scratches easy - so don't leave needle tip on it! :) Maybe that is an idea for future - "a needle tip parking area" - a little rubber ? square somewhere.

But I would have liked a lot more banana plugs! *G*
