_Soldering Station

Feb 2019

To make my life easier and safer while soldering I decided to make an all-in-one soldering station, inspired by I Like To Make Stuff and Punished Props Academy.

The station is basically a wooden box with a drawer to store all soldering materials and tools. There are three bendable arms that have a clamp at the end to hold components and one with a light at its end. At the back of the station are two fans to suck out toxic fumes into a carbon filter. Lastly there's a silicone mat underneath the soldering surface to prevent solder to stick to the wood or damage it.

The entire thing is powered by a 12V plug and has separate switches to control the fans and light. It can also fold together to take up less space.
