Description: This is a simple soldering iron stand composed of a heavy-duty metal base and a reinforced spring holder. The base and holder are detachable. A circular cleaning sponge, which has a nice home at the bottom of the base, is included.
This holder should fit most soldering irons, and it’s a great way to keep our ‘fire-starter’ handy and off your floor.

The spring iron holder on this stand is fine. It’s long enough to hold most irons, and has stood up with heavy use. Now, the base… it isn’t heavy enough to balance any but the tiniest iron. Sparkfun doesn’t sell tiny irons, they sell normal irons. Put the normal iron in the stand, stand falls over. Repeat. You will burn something, probably your desk and maybe your hand. The sponge is also terrible, but you should be using a brass sponge anyway. I modified mine with some lead wire to keep it from falling over, but it still wobbles. Spend $10 and get something better.
