Well made and works as it should.

The joint that holds the magnifying glass isn't strong enough to hold it in place unless you position it a certain way (and I have tried tightening the wing nut).

This item is very helpful when needed for soldering small wires.

I bought this for use with some hobby electronics soldering. After reading the reviews I figured I knew what to expect and for a little over $6 shipped (gotta love Amazon Prime) I took the leap. Some people complained that it was not assembled and came without instructions. Mine was ready to go and completely assembled out of the box. Others complained that the magnifying glass rattled around with the parts and was scratched. Mine was wrapped in plastic and cardboard and as I said earlier, it was completely assembled. Others complained that it is "tippy", and I fully intended to mount it to a board and make a little portable soldering station. I don't find it "tippy" or uneven at all. For what I will use it for it is perfect. It totally exceeded my expectations given the reviews. I hope everyone else who orders this has the same experience I had. Maybe I'm lucky, and I'm sure there is some validity to the other reviewers complaints, but this is exactly what I had hoped for.

I love this little helping hand -- can't believe how handy it is. As a jewelry designer, it's a must have for holding bracelets while I add parts to it. The adjustable arms work perfectly so that I can customize to the size of the item I'm working on. I have found it just as helpful with necklaces, because of how wide I can adjust the clips. Also, the clips are quite strong, so no chance of anything falling off.

When it came in the mail, it was totally assembled, however, the nuts were so tight, I had to ask my other half to loosen them so I can move everything as I need. He fussed at me for spending so much money on another tool. He thought it cost between $30 and $50. He quit fussing when I told him how affordable it was. It is definitely worth the price.

In order to keep it from tipping over, I keep the magnifier toward the back to give it balance (that's all I use the magnifier for). That gives it enough weight to counter the weight of the jewelry I'm working on. I have a magnifying lamp that I use for better vision, so the magnifier serves no other purpose than for balance -- but it works perfectly. This tool has ended a lot of frustration, making my work much more enjoyable.

I'm planning to buy a second one so I can have two pieces in progress at the same time.

My boyfriend and I have many crafty hobbies, he paints figures for Warhammer and Dungeons and dragons and I sew knit crochet and make jewelry and we both find this tool SUPER useful! It clasps onto things so that your fingers don't get as tired as they would if you had to hold a bead or a small miniature piece. and the magnifying glass makes it so that he can get into greater detail with his figures. The base is sturdy so it doesn't fall over easy and you know that your project is secure. I love this product. A must have for any Crafter!

Helping hands tend to get some flak in the eletronics community but they can be quite invaluable if you know how to use them. It helps to use two of them to hold the board. If you only use one then it tends to tip over. A second word of advice is to put a little heat shrink over the tips of the alligator clips. I find this helps them hold onto the board better while preventing the sharp edges of the clips from digging into the board.

Some assembly is required, but there are no directions. You have to figure it out from the pictures and looking at the pieces you have. But it's mostly assembled. Also, it was a bit "tippy" until I figued out to put the second to last "arm" on the glass forward and the last arm heading to the back. (This puts more weight to the front.)

I ordered this item even though it had some negative reviews because the picture looked like what I needed and I thought I would be able to figure out the assembly. As it turns out, the item I received didn't rattle as one reviewer had stated or need assembly as stated by another.

The unit I received was fully assembled and the magnifier was covered by two thin cardboard sheets and wrapped in plastic film. All in all, I am very pleased with the purchase. I hope others have as good an experience as I did.

This product has been extrememely helpful for my needs. I make jewelry at home. It holds the small pieces that I am working on and I can see the extrememly small pieces easily.

The glass is moveable and the helping hands are readily adjustable to fit the project. I can manuever the item as I need for it to be.
I love it, would reccommend it readily. Would not be with out mine.

Thanks So Much

My electronics level is around 'intermediate'. I typically bread board my circuits and try to avoid soldering since my projects generally educational/ hobby or for research at frequencies where a ground plate is not required.

This is my first soldering jig I have ever bought. I wanted to start cheap and decide what features were important before spending more money.

My review:

The weight of base is a bit too light, I would like a heavier stand in the future.
The alligator clip arms have enough range of motion for holding PCB and soldering wires. The elbow joints are
fair and not a major hassle to adjust. The magnifying glass is good although it is not so easy to adjust it's position, sinc eit is heavier than the other parts.

Over all I think this jig is a fair deal on quality and usability for the entry level price.
