Looking for a DIP lead part-prep tool

Looking for a DIP lead part-prep tool | 5 March, 2019

Looking to purchase a DIP lead forming tool. The tool that has the 2 rollers that let you place the DIP part on the rail and run it between 2 rollers (ball-bearing?).

I found a place that once sold them. They were called an RS Pro IC Insertion Tool. That companies page says that they have been discontinued. https://ae.rsdelivers.com/product/rs-pro/uls/rs-pro-ic-insertion-tool/0424658

Someone has to be making/selling these things. Does anyone have a source?

Ours are all DLS-340 from Fancort. They don't appear on their website. Your description was accurate. 2 adjustable bearings with a spacer in the middle. Maybe a phone call to fancort might unearth something.

Charliedci,

Thank you for the lead. I contacted Fancort, and they informed me that they have discontinued (long ago) that product.

The search continues.

I could swear I posted a link to a Hakko "Dipliner" on this thread but lets try again https://www.hakko.com/english/products/hakko_dipliner.html

spoiltforchoice,

Have you used this device? If you have, how does it preform as compared to the original tool I am looking for?

Thank you,

We have used both. They basically operated the same way, the discs are adjustable on the Hakko device as well. It also has a spring to help keep the IC's down on the flat bar. They both perform the same function.
