Anyone who has ever worked with small development boards will know how hard it is to keep them in place on your desktop when numerous cables are connected. To solve this problem, Adafruit has announced the arrival of a new heavy stainless steel PCB holder which is now available to purchase priced at $16.95. The holders were initially marketed for people carrying out smartphone repair and have been redesigned for development boards.
The heavy stainless steel PCB holder is capable of fitting development boards up to 100 mm x 90 mm in size. “This flat and dense vise is great because your hands can rest directly on the work table, allowing you to steady yourself with minimal effort for precise soldering and probing. The thick metal plate weighs 430 grams (almost a pound!) and keeps it from moving around so you don’t have to worry about the PCB shifting while you’re trying to heat up a stubborn component.’
– Hold your PCB flat – give your arms a rest! This vise holds your circuit board flat so you can solder more easily at table/desk level.
– Solid stainless steel body with grippy rubber feet
– Product Dimensions: 130.0mm x 90.0mm x 26.0mm / 5.1″ x 3.5″ x 1.0″
– Product Weight: 431.0g / 15.2oz
