  • I actually like this stand, and I use it with the 30w iron sold here. By itself, the stand doesn’t stay put when using a soldering iron that has a thick cord as the comments suggest. The solution is to screw this to a board (one screw through the sponge holder). I used a 6" piece of a 2x6. With the extra room on the board I used a hole saw to recess a spot for my flux can, and I put in two long screws to hold a spool of solder and some electrical tape. This makes for a cheap soldering station.

No public wish lists :(
