Solder Jig recommendations

Postby Text_Edifice » Mon Aug 24, 2015 11:13 am

Hi all,

I'm looking for a commercially available soldering jig / clamp / similar for a bunch of novice solderers.

What do you guys use?

If your wanting to solder XLR connectors, just attach a pair of panel mount XLRs (male and female) to a small block of wood.

I have a couple of Panavise 301 on my workbench, you can get cheaper knockoffs online. I have also seen chassis sockets mounted in a block to hold connectors while you're soldering, I just find the Panavise more versatile.
