Chip-Clips you ask?

Yep, how to remove the chip from the hub solutions... other than the full cartridge, of course.

This little solution could be fun.
Now I should be able to make a filament driver clamp that allows just the driver to snap onto the printer.

But before I did than, we need a chip contact solution.

I went and got these on eBay for a little over a buck.


I've seen the EE's use them around work but never actually owned any.
Now I've got a few cables built up. This will help with a lot of future projects.

Initially I was going to solder the chip to the wires... and I thought "why?".

This works nicely and has a pretty good grip on both ends:

Simple overview (sorry for the poor focus)

A reading:


The contact end well secured and isolated:


And securing the chip:


It needs a little work to maintain the driver vertical (I once put one out that would work... need to find it again)


What do you think... worth pursuing?

Of course, these clips should work well with the chip modifier as well
I really need to finish that project
