Homemade Soldering Stand

About: My name is ALI Essam, I'm interested in electronics and programming,but i'm still learning

The idea came to me when i saw it in my local store
The price was expensive for such an easy tool like this
so i decided to make it myself

Materials :
-Piece of wood (25 X 15 )
-Some Metal Clothes hanger
-3 Big crocodile clips


Step 1: Preparing the Hangers for the Solder Stand

make it straight using pliers
and remove any plastic from one of the hangers
and leave the other one with plastic

Step 2: Solder Iron Holder

twist it around the bottle to take the shape
but leave a little part of it to attach it to the stand
then put two nails in wood and attach the holder as in pictures

Step 3: Third Hand

cut three pieces of the hangers (about 20 cm each)
make them as L shape
then bend them as in the picture
remove the rubber cover of the clips
and attach them to the three pieces using pliers
put two nails in wood and attach each hand as in pictures

Step 4: Solder Roll Hoder

Get a piece of the hangers and make it as the shape in pictures
then attach it to wood using nails

    Its indeed very simple I am just gonna make it , you cant work without a solder stand, i have plastic sheet on my worktable , i have burnt several while soldering.

    I really tried to burn it but it didn't burn ,just melt
    then i made another one,but this time i removed the vinyl off first using pliers
    it's much easier when it's straight
