Why pay megabucks for a fancy Soldering Iron stand when you can build one yourself with scrap?
Or, why use that flimsy plastic stand that comes with your cheap pencil soldering iron, and risk burns, fire, or melted stuff?
Step 1: Parts
- piece of wood, appropriately sized for stability and weight
- heavy coat hangar wire
- broom handle (only needed temporarily.. borrow your mom's/wife's/roommate's broom for 5 minutes) or 3/4 - 1" dowel scrap
- half of a travel soap dish
- kitchen sponge
- rubber feet, or just staple a piece of old bicycle inner tube to the bottom of the wood to make it non-slip
