DIY Vacuum part lifter

Trouble holding and placing tiny SMD parts? Sjaak improvised a vacuum part lifter with a needle and the fume extractor on an Aoyue 968 soldering station

I did ran a quick test and the fume extractor is strong enough to lift 0603 and 0805 passive. The diameter of needle is big enough to hold the parts. Looks promising!
