Review by Robert

Works but handles are difficult to use as they don't tighten easily.

Bonne tenue.

Review by Michel

Tout comme Matt, j'utilise la loupe comme contrepoids. Il peut arriver qu'on doivent utiliser du ruban adhésif pour l'empêcher de basculer, mais ça indique également que les bras sont capables de maintenir un poids relativement lourd!

well made third hand

Review by rene

good quality,what can you buy for $7.today.

I use this almost every time I solder.

Review by Matt

Excellent product. You may need to tape it down so it doesn't tip over if you're holding something heavy. I have good eyes so I actually use the magnifying glass as a counterweight on the other side.

Too light.

Review by Luke

The base is too light had to screw it into a larger base to hold it still.

Review by William

I am very pleased with the Third Hand. It amazes me that I get so much for so little.

Great third hand, very good price

Review by Adrian

Very good third hand, with good construction. And the price is a fraction of what you find in other stores.

Good product

Review by Sylvain

Very useful.

I would have liked the magnifier with a longer arm, but works nice overall.

Very fast shipping (24 hours). Impressive.

IF the stand was more wide

Review by abdellah

Very useful tool, no burning of fingers or clothing now (I still have a spot on my right hand). I note on 5 if only the base was still wide and even better to the shape of a bowl.

Good value

Review by Antoine

I'm new to all this soldering/robotics/electronics stuff and its for my 6 years old rather smart son. I can tell you this was essential to soldering properly. You need one of these. Great value. In the future I'll get a bigger one but for starters it works perfectly. Nothing to complain about. PS: get an LCD lamp as well otherwise you'll regret it ;)

Good Value

Review by lmimkac

For the few bugs you pay, this little tool is a good deal. The relatively heavy base contributes to the toll's stability, however, I would prefer a few grams more. It is easy to use and I recommend it when a third hand is needed.

Kind of small

Review by Jimmy

This unit is quite small. If I install the magnifying glass then there is very little room below the glass and between the arms. I usually just remove the magnifying glass and use it to hold stuff, and it works fairly well for holding small things like wires when I'm soldering.

Very good price!

Review by Frederic

The price is great. For 5$, you have a great holder.

The base could have been heavier.

Good value and price

Review by Edouard

For this price, I would recommend it, very satisfied, really useful with PCB's

(Posted on 7/2/14)

Good value

Review by Daniel

For just over $5, this little tool is a good deal. If you can buy it locally, I would recommend it. The heavy base contributes to your overall shipping weight quite a bit. The third hand tool is sturdy. My only complaint is that that magnifying glass holder is a bit loose, which isn't a big deal.

Review by Daniel

(Posted on 5/23/14)

Good product

Review by Terryl

good build quality
good range of positions
some joint slip under moderate pressure
not suitable for medium to large PCBs

(Posted on 5/18/14)

Good tool for soldering small PCBs

Review by David

This is a really great tool, the only problem that I could say is that if you apply too much strenght when soldering the PCB moves.

Great Little Product

Review by Thierry

Construction is sturdy and the lens is actually glass with a metal frame. Great tool to solder small PCB's
