Nice enough little iron holder

Reviewed by: Mr Robert Crawford - 16 September 2016
I bought this at the same time as I bought some lead/tin solder so it's getting less use than I expected. For rebuilds of things where leadfree solder has been used it is very useful and a vast improvement on other tip cleaning methods and led to a big reduction in being forced to re-tin the soldering iron tip. Will have to see if they do a version with a sponge for my leaded solder exploits.
