    A must have for electronics hobbyists

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    I am not aware of any cons although it is smaller than I expected, however, it is big enough for my needs

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    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 ...
    Cons:
    The cast iron base could be a bit more wide on the bottom for more stability. The alligator clips are sometimes damaging the ou...

    Cons:
    The bottom part is cast iron and very heavy, but my desk is made out of glass so it will slide over my dest when working, it is...
