That blue stuff is cool. Do I need a 3D printer now?

>>> Hi there,
>>> I’m working with SMT all the time now. Occasionally (right now) I have to replace 50 of the same 0603 resistor on a PCB. I have hot tweezers, which is very fast for taking them off/putting them on, but getting the new resistor out of a reel or bin in my parts box is clumsy and slow. Is there a feeder system that anyone knows of that is intended for hand rework, so that each resistor appears on the tape ready to be picked up? All this dropping and flipping them is making me crazy.
