  • I definitely don’t recommend this. It came with my simon says PTH soldering kit. After taking it out of the box, the joint connecting the spring to the main support wire just broke. I was able to secure it with a twist-tie (just the metal to avoid the paper catching fire with the iron). When I placed the iron on the stand, it just BARELY manages to balance on the front, where the sponge is. This stand does not have enough weight to it to support an iron on its own. If you don’t have something to bolt this down to (there is a screw hole on the bottom), then don’t get this. I nearly burned myself many times thinking that the iron was about to fall off of my table.

  • This is awesomely tiny.
