Decent unit with some drawbacks – Solder Core Wire Holder - Blue Reviews

posted by AriMc on 03/11/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Apart from the base and coil holder, all parts are made of metal. Assembled properly with bolts and nuts so it is easy to take apart and adjust.
Cons:
The unit is a bit too narrow. Common 75 mm wide solder coils are just a bit too wide to fit in the unit. Mine was poorly assembled and a bit askew in all aspects. After disassembling, straightening all the metal parts, deburring and then reassembling the parts with proper adjustements everything was fine.
Other:
For those wondering about the dimensions of the coil holder, here they are: Max. coil width: 72 mm Minimum coil center hole diameter: 16 mm
Bottomline:
Worth the price if your solder coils are narrow enough to fit in the unit.
