All,

As several of you have noticed, our solder paste dispenser is doing worse and worse lately. After investigation, we are buying a newer, simpler, cheaper dispenser which should arrive soon. The new dispenser will feed off of building nitrogen, which we are lucky to have available to us. No more piston pump!

In the meantime, it's possible to successfully dispense with our current device---let me know if you're having problems and I'll share some troubleshooting tips. Expect it to be a little slow-going and frustrating, especially with older solder paste and thinner needles. Thanks for your patience.

Non-pneumatic features of the Pace soldering station are still working as designed.

Best,
Blaise
