Introduction: 5 Min Soldering Iron Base

This is a simple and easy to make base for a soldering iron made in about 5 minutes or less!

Step 1: Materials

You will only need:

●A 4x2 wooden block
●A metal spring (I got mine from an umbrella)
●3 cable clips/nails

And a hammer as the only tool.

Step 2: Hammering

All you have to do is hammer the cable clips in place forming the same angle between them. You can do this while the spring is in place or add it when you are done.

Step 3: Done!

There you have it! A simple way to keep your soldering iron in place and away from accidents while soldering.

    Ele funciona muito bem, ainda mais com uma placa de mdf que eu colei na base. A mola é de um guarda chuva e é bem resistente, claro que com os equipamentos vc consegue fazer de um jeito mais personalizado, talvez com outro ângulo e fazendo uma mola que enrosque na madeira.

    Awesome! You should probably build the base out of plastic/metal as the wood could be a fire hazard
