PCB Rax – A modular system for holding circuit boards.
The PCB Rax is an easy to use, versatile printed circuit board holder for repair, prototyping , and assembly that can hold nearly any shape of circuit board.
Hold on Tight
Not all circuit boards are rectangular. PCB Rax was designed to hold all kinds of different shaped circuit boards, from circles to christmas trees, and everything in-between. PCB Rax comes standard with 10″ connecting rods that can hold rectangular boards up to 9-1/4″ x 8″, and odd shaped boards up to 6-1/2″ x 8″. For larger projects the connecting rods can be replaced.
Move it Around
Position the work where you want it to be. Unlike a vise, you can move it to where you need it. You can flip it on its side to access both sides of the board, and flip it upside down to solder. It is even portable, take it to the project.
The PCB Rax is packed with features that make it easy to work on your projects.
The PCB Rax rails include a slot for holding rectangular circuit boards without needing the extension brackets. They also have accessory slots that hold all of our accessories.
The connecting rods are tightened with a set of thumb nuts (no tools needed) this makes it easy to set the correct pressure to hold the circuit board. If you need to hold larger circuit boards, the connecting rods can be replaced with inexpensive 1/4″-20 threaded rod available at most hardware stores.
Extension Brackets hold odd shaped boards, or boards with tight clearance. They tighten with thumbs screws in just a few seconds. We include four extension brackets.
