Very good – Helping Third Hand Soldering Stand w/ 2-LED White Light & Magnifier (3 x AAA) Reviews

Pros:
It's perfect if you need to solder or repair some small parts. It has a LED light which is not extremely bright, but it's exactly enough for this small distance and it helps.
Cons:
Build quality is decent, but you need to apply a bit more force to the screws if you want the arms to hold in the position, otherwise it's a bit shaky.
Other:
I have previously used a small jaw vice for fixing stuff when soldering but this is much better, more flexible, plus the magnifying glass is very useful even if your eyes are good :-)
Bottomline:
Definitelly buy it if you need something to fix things while repairing or soldering. I wouldn't recommend it for professional use but if you just need to use it here and there, it's perfect.
