Mon, 11 Sep 2017 13:00:25 +0000

I’ve got a Hakko FX-901 Cordless Soldering Iron and I love it. I was reminded how much I love it when Donald mentioned it in Maker Update #37. I got mine about two years ago after using one at the Be A Maker space. I stick a set of rechargeable AA batteries in it and […]

The Fondoodler

I picked up a 3D printing pen a while back, and yes, I should blog about it, but in the meantime I’ll just drop this post about the Fondoodler, which is a little like a 3D printing pen, but more like a hot glue gun for cheese… or chocolate! When I got the Fondoodler (back […]
