Hi,

Well, here are my 2¢ worth.

For feeding, instead of having the huge things - aka feeders for large runs, why not implement an 'old style' dot matrix printer feeder, but with adjustable width spokes.

Then on the side, depending on the maximum pcb workable area, have an attachment, that will be a small oven, with side walls that can open and close, as to save space and energy.

I can input more, but... some others have referred to other projects.

Desktop pickup and place

The way my brain works: when I saw "desktop pick and place machine" I immediately thought of a robot that you put on your desk which cleans up your desktop. The question is, after it has finished placing everything, will I be able to find anything?

Good day,

There are already some low cost PnP projects started and so perhaps it would be best to work with these groups, as opposed to starting another one.  Here are some that I have found:
