@Caleb: Not a horrible idea. I wonder if there are enough people out there who really need a pick and place to justify it?

Maybe not hobbyists -- but a small engineering company who needs to build 10 prototypes for projects before going into production... possibly...

@Caleb: I guess they could make a kit form and get costs down by buying in bulk.
