Custom parts and enclosures

Hexagon Bend Jig

This is what I used to help bend the brass rods into a nice hexagon shape.

Arduino Nano male header pin solder Jig

This is what I used to solder the Nanos header pins with. It holds the pins in place to ensure they are square and don't move around too much while soldering.
