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.

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.

Found coiled up on the top of my garbage pail of course!

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.

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.
