SMD Solder Aid

I made this project 2 years ago but I didn’t put it on my site. Yesterday somebody asked for pictures so I decided to ad it as a project.


The base of my solder aid is an old cutting board, on which I attached an arm that is pulled down by a spring.

(There is another spring on the other side)


I put the smd component on the pcb underneath the screw. Then it stays in place during soldering. On top of the arm I’ve placed 2 leds for some extra light.
