Hello Arv, K7HKL,
If you build your own Solder Paste Extruder, please send a snapshot of it to me.
I'm sure yours will look orders of magnitude better than mine.
Here are the approximate dimensions of the prototype that I made (not to scale):
I used a piece of scrap 1x pine, 0.75" thick.
The screw is 1/4-20 about 3.75" long, from the scrap box.
The hole for the nut was drilled, then filed out.
The slots that hole the finger tabs on the syringe are the width of the jig saw blade.
I put masking tape around that part to keep the syringe from twisting / falling out.
My dental hygienist saves broken dental tools for me. They come in handy.
