Recently I bought a IDC tool ($10 plastic version) and it was stuffed after about 20 uses as the plastic fingers started wearing and bending so I wanted to design and get one made for myself. The beauty is it is double ended so in theory it should last you a life time as the pin pusher part is stainless steel and the handle is solid nylon.

You can find it via this link and will be around $35 total for both parts.

I will be ordering one over the weekend and then people can order in about a months. Currently the 2 insertion tips are slightly different to determine which is the best at testing with the final version to be updated in about a months time.

Your prices are far too good, swinks.

Great work on reproducing these near impossible to find pieces.  ^^^

 I couldn't agree more, I looked for near 12 months before Rob found that drive wheel for me. Now others won't have the hassle. Great work Jady!

thanks guys, and in all honesty they are priced to hopefully sell (my percentage is small) and I like to help people out especially when there are no other options, at the end of the day it is design practice for something bigger (I hope)

Sorry to high jack your thread Swinks, I love you’re your work and after seeing this TED video, 3D printing seems to have no limits in the future. I can’t see injection moulding lasting too much longer!
Interesting video, as all TED videos are.
