I cleaned up an old ratchet box.
sprayed it Hammer green
lined it with cork
I made a collapse-able soldering iron stand. The hinge of the base is made from a hot connector block innard and some 3 mm brass rod. The base is made from bent aluminium plate.
or stand up
The case fits the soldering iron, stand, extractor, solder and multi-meter. Safe and in one place.
ready to use
