    Nice and well priced third hand tool. The base seems to be metallic and has good heft to it. It’s provided with rubber feet, so it doesn’t slide through the bench. The kit comes with 6 arms, which is more than enough for regular soldering tasks. You can even use one of the arms to hols a small usb fan to get the fumes out of the area.

    The arms are really malleable. However, since they are made of plastic, getting them “exactly” in the position I wanted was a bit of a challenge as they wouldn’t stay in place. I would recommend this tool for soldering medium PCBs or large components. For soldering small components where precision adjustment/holding is needed, I would look elsewhere.

    Bought the large one for doing one off pc board assembly and breakouts…I can honestly say I like it much more than expected. The aligator clips have unshrunk shrink tube over them…at first this was seemed like a cheap out, but to be honest, after extended heavy use I have come to really like it….you need to be careful not to shrink it when applying heat right next to them, but the trade off became clear the other day while adjusting a pot while building a board….I did not have the clips for my meter with me, and by removing one side of the shrink wrap and sliding the probe under the other side I was able to hold and stabilize the board while making adjustments and keeping the meter connected so I could watch it all in real time.

    Very good. Alligator clips so strong they can occasionally pierce wires., June 10, 2018

    I finally got a chance to use this for a few hours when soldering several wires together for an aftermarket car stereo. Works great. Almost too good because the alligator clips have such force behind them they pierce wires fairly easily. Besides that the arms are really adjustable and after you get this into the position you want they really stay there which is great. I would definitely recommend this over the cheaper helping hands kits even tho you have to do something like tape up the clips so they don’t pierce the wires.
