Safe Soldering Iron Stand

Since the last 20 years I have been using the old design spiral coil type soldering iron stand and many times I have damaged the soldering iron power cable.

Other type of cable and other material which accidentally comes in the contact with this type of soldering iron stand were also damaged.

Gap between  coil can easily damage any wire which comes in contact.

So I decided to buy some good and safer soldering iron stand from our local electronics market to make my working environment safer. The electronics center that I went was called LAMINGTON ROAD at GRANT ROAD STATION in Mumbai and it was about 40Km away from my place.

It took me many hours to shop around the market for electronics tools. I eventually bought solder wire, small nose pliers, latest soldering iron stand and contactless AC live wire detector.

It can sense 90V- 1000V AC and give Beep and Light indication on live wire detection. You can check on the below link how this small little tool can be useful:

Now see how it protects accidental contacts of wire in the below photo:

My personal opinion to all the technicians please invest in good tools and equipment which can make your repair job faster, safer and comfortable.

    Good article Yogesh.
    On my good old Weller WTCP-S (over 35 years old) I replaced the cord for a sillicon one, about 25 years ago. Before that time I wrapped a piece of metal wire netting, also called "chicken wire" but with smaller holes (for mouses) around the metal spiral. It worked also fine for about 10 years.

    It looks very high quality. Thanks for this. I'll have to see if I can find something similar in the USA. I also use the standard "coil stand" and have had the problem of the cord damaging. I have one stand that has a perforated metal tube that goes inside the spring. The iron fits into the tube and helps keep it shielded somewhat.
