Insertion Tool for Edge Connector

      This disclosure provides a tool to automatically insert an edge
connector onto a circuit card.  It provides a clamping force to keep
the conductive lands in place until they are soldered securely.

      Shown in the figure is the disclosed insertion tool. The side
view allows the unique design of the tool to be observed.  Both top
and bottom jaws have a groove that has been machined to allow an
O-ring to be slit and placed in the groove.  This design allows
repeated placement and retraction of the tool leaving the conductor
in the correct alignment.
