Based on chrischs question i made a RE-lid tool glue the heatspreader easier at the correct position again.
THIS IS Alpha !- untested from me as i have no CPU to test with, so kindly please give feedback if it will work
Materials and methods
* put the heatspreader into the tray
* apply glue
* apply thermal compund either on the cpu or the heatspreader
* put the CPU into the tray
* put the Cover over the Tray
ensure that the Notches of the CPU PCB are at the same place of the notches of the tray !
* move the clamp over the "sandwich" , probably best would be sideways ?
Ensure that you print it at high quality and test if the CPU will really touch the Heatspreader, otherwise it may damage your CPU when glueing it with a gap in between.
As always use at your own risk !
some sort of glue ?

Scaled up to 101% as Eondar suggested, worked perfectly with Coffee Lake!
@ SkyNETTestGames, sorry, can`t say if it will work with Coffeelake, i have no so cpu
@ImpulsiveJames , sorry but won`t happen.
Any chance you'd consider an Ivy Bridge re-lid tool in the next few days? :) I'm de-lidding in about three days :)
will it go for the i7 8700k?
Hy Monsun, sorry but this tool is not compatible with Ivy Bridge.
Hi Chri could you provide information about compatiblity with Ivy Bridge CPUs?
it was a custom prusa i3. Outside perimeters were printed first. Layerheight was 0,1mm. Infill 25%. However this was probably the 5th print I ever made with the printer, so other settings might have been a little off.
If I have the time I could try to print it again without scaling and test it with another cpu.
But in general I don't think that it is much of an issue to upscale it a bit. Even if the IHS of the cpu would sit 0,5mm off, the endresult will work without a problem ;)
@ Eondar, with which printer have you printed it ?
Most printer with pre deliveres Settings come with "outside perimeters" last which always causes prints to be larger at outside dimension and smaller at inside dimension.
the outside perimeters should be printed at first (even if it becomes more troublesome to overhangs) to get more accurate prints ;)
After I printed it at 101% it worked flawlessly. I can't tell if my printer has a little overextrusion or if the tolerances are too tight on this model.
