    pros: Easy to set up Sturdy base cons: Weak ball joints may only hold light weight objects Very heavy magnifying glass so the ball joints will not hold it in place. Nut or bold may strip Just be careful when assembling the ball joints as the screw thread may get stripped Read more

    Practical and affordable support for soldering even on laptop computer mobos, strong clamps and sufficient stable base. Metal surfaces are finished with crude and thick layers of chrome, prevent rusting but some threads are almost impossible to screw at first to adjust pieces. With oil and pliers finally problem solved. Joints are crude but funcional.... Read more

    It is really convenient to use when you need a "third " hand, keeps well, and the bad thing is heavy slides on the table. Clamps conveniently, you can rotate the clamps. Assembling shaky, magnifying glass falls out, the increase in very small loops (although the large increase is not necessary.) Instead of a heavy stand would be much more ... Read more

    This is a great little tool - better than I expected for the price. You can adjust it to just about any angle you want. The spring in the crocodile clips are nice and strong. The magnification is strong enough to see all the detail you need to see. I am not aware of any cons although it is smaller than I expected, however, it is big enough for my needs ... Read more

    This thing is awesome. I'm always repairing electronics, and the third hand helps so much. Hold item very well and has strong grip to do so. You don't get burned trying to hold wires in your hands anymore. Magnifier glass works great to see little stuff I work on. Fully adjustable for work and solid. Clips can be removed and replaced. Base is a little ... Read more

    I like the simple design and the cast iron base is stabilizing the hands nicely. The alligator clips are capable of holding most of the stuff needed to solder and the magnifier is a cool addition when soldering really tiny parts. It's easy to rearrange the joints of the system and also it can be zipped into a tiny place to store when not used. The cast ... Read more

    necessary thing for people who can hold a soldering iron in his hand :) does not take up much space, small and easy to use, keep your clips much detail and do a good job stand could be a bit on the heavier and with holes for fastening the workbench I sit and think - to order another one, or what? :) how many nerves were wasted until I bought this third ...

    It looks great, it is very useful for soldering small electronics. It feels also pretty strong and solid...... It may be adjusted with many different bolts. The base is too small so if the arms and the magnifying glass are not set in a balanced way it may fall over even if there is nothing attached to it. If you use it in a permanent location, such ...
