In many offline and online stores are soldquite good and quite comfortable stand for soldering irons, and inexpensive. But if you want, you can make them yourself. It turns out cheaper, plus you can adapt the stand for your own needs. There are a lot of ideas for making, so we decided not to limit ourselves to one, but to make a selection of the most interesting in our opinion self-made soldering stands for a soldering iron, made by own hands. Stand for soldering iron made of wire. Let's start with the most budgetary, simple and widespread option. In it, the attachment for the soldering iron is made of thick metal wire in the form of a conical spring and is attached to a wooden or other base. Instead of wire, you can use thin metal clothes hangers, which are practically in every house. Such a stand can be made more convenient by installing additional buns on it, for example, a metal sponge for cleaning a soldering iron, a box for tin and rosin or a holder for soldering. From the wire, you can make another home-made stand for a soldering iron, a little less convenient (although it's a matter of taste) and just as simple to manufacture. Stand for the soldering iron from the fuses. Another option is very easy to manufacture and does not require a money-consuming stand. The base is made of a wooden block or textolite, the fuses of the correct size are attached to it. Mobile stand. Homemade mobile stand for soldering iron, made of sheet metal, obtained from the burned power supply from the computer. The stand is designed primarily for people who often solder outside the house. It is quite comfortable and functional, while easily placed in a bag or even in a jacket pocket. Having such a stand, you do not have to wear itseparately tin, rosin and a clamp for soldering small parts. Where and what is stored well shown in the video, we recommend you look.

We will show only a few of them, the most interesting in our opinion. The first stand has everything you need for comfortable work, namely, a place for tin and rosin, a clip for soldering small parts, a sponge for cleaning the sting, an integrated regulator, and, in fact, fasteners for fast but reliable fixing of the soldering iron. See the manufacturing process here. Well, two more and no less interesting ideas in the video format. The simplest stand.

It is better to temporarily make a simple design, and then change it to something more worthy. The best option, which is done literally in a couple of minutes - is a wooden bar with four long screws.
