In our previous episode, The Brat was dragging 8000 pound pallets of pick-and-place machine around with her Jeep.
Well, we finally got it installed and working.

It's a Universal dual-head (double side) pick and place.
This is the PCB washer. Behind that big door is a Kenmore dishwasher. Not kidding.
First boards through:
PnP time was 2.5 minutes per board, versus 2 hours per board on the semi-auto machines. But we'll still do the thru-hole parts by hand.
