[PjotrStrog]’s rugged Pinecil / TS100 storage scenario is the fantastic printable accessory to go with a hacker’s decision of either the Pine64 Pinecil, or the Miniware TS100 soldering irons. There are some thoughtful characteristics over and above just storing the iron, much too!
Some of you could have spotted a 608 bearing in the picture over, and may be thinking what it is for. In very pleased hacker tradition of employing points for a thing other than their supposed objective, the bearing will make a heat-resistant stand to hold the iron while in use.
This style and design has a pretty deep background that illustrates the worth of sharing one’s types and allowing for other folks to remix and refine tips. [PjotrStrog]’s work tends to make use of the earlier and remarkably considerate TS100, Pinecil, TS80 & TS80p conditions with possibilities by [Termiman], which themselves are centered on bearing-outfitted TS100 scenario by [Olvin] that we included back in 2020.
We liked the Pine64 Pinecil soldering iron, and this seems like a great printable storage and have alternative. There are a couple pieces of components essential to put the rugged version alongside one another, but [PjotrStrog] also provides a considerably less rugged style with fewer components needs, so check that out as well.
