i am planing for a stringy stand but not this!!!!!!!!!!!<br><br><br>
My homebrew stand is a bit more involved but I wanted to make it like the commercial ones were. The outlet is even switched so I can turn the iron off when not in use. Then I ended up getting a soldering station. Oh in case you can't tell I made the one on the left :) ha ha!
I have a stand like in the ibble, but I like your homebrew. Building in progress!
This was one of those I want one sorts of projects. So, it was drag through the junk pile, assemble likely trash, and stick it together sort of a deal.<br><br>The trickiest aspect of it that I can recall was getting the aperture where the iron rests just the right size. I used a thin strip of sheet metal that my pneumatic shears spits out as material to form the correct sized hole for my iron.<br><br>Found coiled up on the top of my garbage pail of course!<br><br>I should add that I'm left handed so that is why mine is how it is. If I was to do it again I'd somehow figure out a way I could attach a sponge pan to the thing. Other than that no complaints. It served me well for many years.<br><br>The sound the iron makes being drawn, then holstered still says I'm soldering to me!
nice stand! I haven't had to do this since mine came with one, but this is great for standalone irons.
