Must have tool for soldering! – Heavy Duty Steel Mini Vise Reviews

posted by iamalx on 04/10/2013 Certified Owner

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
Other:
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.
