  • Must have tool for soldering!

    posted by iamalx on 04/10/2013

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - The cheapest metal wise I'm aware of
    - It holds PCBs more reliable than specialized holders like sku-21651
    - I've just bought it randomly and now can't imagine myself soldering without this tool

    Cons:

    - The build quality is not so good, but still acceptable
    - You need to twist it really hard to your table - thats because the holder surface is too small
    - You need to turn it with care not to damage your PCB

    OtherThoughts:

    A good tool to start with if you tired of burning you hands with soldering iron while holding small pcbs

    Bottomline:

    I definitely recommend using metal wise instead of buying magnifier/pcb holder/iron holder. this thing is much more reliable.
