An all-PCB solderable
solder spool holder
Once assembled SPOOLT will hold one or more solder or other wire spools and will look amazing while doing it.
The kit contains two rib and six bar circuit boards. Also included is a card for crafting a spool.
It's quite straightforward. Make sure that the pieces are soldered flush with the edges, particularly the bottom two bars so that there is maximum contact with the surface; this helps against the thing moving as you pull on the solder.
The 3mm holes can be used to affix the holder to a surface using screws or cable ties. Here's a PDF for making more card spools.
SPOOLT is an open source design, as is most of our work. You can find the design files for the hardware and packaging at our GitHub repository. You can edit the design files using our own PCB design open source software, PCBmodE.
The circuit boards were lovingly made by Eurocircuits who also kindly supported this project financially.
