Slick little workstation – Soldering Workstation with 5X Magnifier for Electronic DIY Reviews

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

Pros:
This is a great little workstation. Build quality is nice. The attached clips have a good, strong bite. The joints are of surprising quality, as well, though the benefit from a little lubricant. The magnifying glass is of high quality, and doesn't really have any weird distortion or flaws. The base is nice and heavy, and feels like it won't move unless you want it to.
Cons:
It's pretty expensive relative to what you can simply pick up at an electronics store in your home town. I found a similar model cheaper here. The convenience of being able to simply hit order and have the thing delivered is pretty nice, though.
Other:
Bottomline:
It's a good quality tool, and I'd buy it again. This is a good way to save a trip to the store. Otherwise, you might consider checking out local prices first.
