Introduction: The Quickest Way to Make Kits

I learned this trick from my friend Becky, and it seemed painfully obvious after having seen it. However, I would have never thought of this on my own. At the very least, it would have taken me a while to come to this conclusion.

But, to get on with it... this trick is so simple that you probably have already figured it out from the picture itself. To make a lot of electronics kits quickly, you use cups. Simply count out each of the parts into each of the cups. When you are done, you dump the entire cup into an anti-static bag.

This saves you the hassle from having to handle every bag for every new part, and remarkably cuts down the time it takes to assemble a kit by hand.

    You could also use cupcake tins or the actual cupcake baking pan.

    I love this idea; I see almost the same idea in a video of make: magazine :) but this vre better pictures to my reference archive

    Careful, though. Those cups are NOT anti-static. I was happy that in this video, chips went into anti-static foam before they went into the cups: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7NjSn9Xc0U

    If you're really worried about static you could always line the cups with aluminum foil.

    My thoughts exactly.

    This is a great idea! I repair broken Ipods, Iphones, and cell phones and I use cups to seperate my parts.
