Default Fun with Fun-Tak

Found a good use for that adhesive putty known as fun-tak or BlueStick to
hold through hole parts in place when soldering them. I've also used it on
occasion for a temporary High voltage insulator before doing final potting.
The stuff is normally sold for putting posters and the like up on painted
walls without damage to the surfaces.

Also Stik-Tak, a similar product sold under the Duco name

Neat! Would never have thought of the temporary
HV insulator use.

Gives a whole new meaning to surface mount :-)

Great! I often would ball up a paper towel to hold the through hole
components while I solder them in place.

I've used Silly Putty on occasion.



No comment! ;-)

It's silicone. It might be a better insulator.

I never tried it for through hole parts, but I have used it in very small
blobs underneath SMD parts, and also on parts mounted on DIP headers.

Sounds like fun. What happens if you put it in the microwave?

But seriously, what's in Silly Putty that conducts and reacts? Is the
silicone responsible?

Come on Tom. The comments were about meatplow playing with silly
putty, and the fact it went right over your head.

OTOH, it DOES pick up ink from newspaper that may be carbon based.

Well whoosh can mean other things, like sudden conflagration.

On a similar note, I've used my old Gilbert Erector Set on occasion...for
parts and for making special clamps and jigs.


OTOH, it DOES pick up ink from newspaper that may be carbon based.


Definitely only clean, pure, silly putty should be used.

Don't let Dimbulb find out that you have an "Erector Set"

I agree, 100%! It would be insanely silly to do otherwise! ;-)

I tried the tiny bit of fun-tak under smd parts when I first started working
with them. Found out later that the solder paste alone did a fine job of
holding the parts in place until the board was put in the oven. Then surface
tension took over at melt temperature (and if everything was right) pulled
the parts to the center of their pads. If was not right, tombstoning and
rework. The right size pad and in relation to the device is important as is
the thermal profiles.

Great. Another use besides making a temporary holding screwdriver.

done that too - great when you can't use a magnetized screwdriver on brass
or some stainless screws.
