Perfect Clamp style!

I have had two different soldering types of "helping hands" from the smaller compact kind with alligator clips to the jumbo style with long extensions that are magnetized to the board. This one, however, is just much better all the way around. It is the perfect size for more than 90% of solder jobs. The clips, anchors and adjustability is well thought-through. The proximal aspect of the clips are non-jaged, while the distal aspect has nice jaws to bite anything needed. The base is sturdy and has a nice balanced weight making this set of helping hands my "go-to" for making connectorscap packs and adapters. Highly Recommend!

Works beautifully for largish work

My third soldering gizmo, and by far the best. I’ve done several jobs. Claws grip firmly and are big enough to grab onto plugs. Plugs are probably too strong for small wires and may damage insulation, so don’t throw away your little one.

They almost made it good.

I love their other soldering stand better even though it only has 1 hand because the whole unit is heavier and doesnt move around as much. This one is fine for certain applications but if your using a hand to hold a bullet connector at a 30ish degree angle when you go to apply pressure to the bullet from the wire one of two things happens. Either the arm start moving sideways no matter how hard I clamp it down or the entire base slides because the unit has no weight to it. If these two issues were addressed Id give it 4 stars. If they replaced all the plastic parts that get tightened with metal where I could really lock everything in place to where no amoutn of pressure would make it move or have to worry about breaking it then Id give it 5 Stars

New to me soldering stand

The soldering stand comes with 2 clamps. I ordered additional clamps which makes it much easier to butt splice small electronic wires together.

Nice but plastic parts failed

A nice idea, but the plastic nuts that secure the clamps to the base almost all failed on mine. This rendered it useless and I didn't want to spend $6 on each to replace them.

ProgressiveRC Comment: We have seen a handful of failures of this plastic nut from over-tightening over the years of selling this product and are currently looking at improvements to the design to eliminate this. Please contact us if you would like a replacement plastic nut.
