It's inevitable that interesting hacks emerge as one creates and assembles circuit boards. Over time I've come up with a few techniques that help me get the job done, and I'm happy to share them. The tools are Kapton tape, a straight top-edge good quality knife, and a hammer. The boards in the video are the 'itemv' smartcard analysis tool, the 'cordwood puzzle', and in the corner there, the 'superhero' plaque.
