Useful thing – Soldering Workstation with 5X Magnifier for Electronic DIY Reviews

posted by madclone on 11/20/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Makes soldering small parts easier, very stable on the table due to heavy base. it can be dismantled easily and is very compact for storage in a tool box.
Cons:
bult qulity not so good, but at that price is acceptable. The mag. glass came stained both sides. Tried to clean it with different kinds of solvents (alcohol, white spirit, thinner, kerosine) - non of them helped. Had to polish it with Dremel and abrasive paste.
Other:
Bolts used for fixing "hands" and lens in position have large plastic heads - very easy to tighten/loosen. Maybe use same type of bolts for the iron holder and central post?
Bottomline:
Good thing exept for the lens.
