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

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.
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.
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
Worth the price if your solder coils are narrow enough to fit in the unit.
