STL Custom Hobbies Ultimate Soldering Jig
Now here’s something that will make every electric driver’s life a lot easier. It’s the Ultimate Solder Jig from STL Custom Hobbies. The jig is made to hold most every type of connector firmly for quick and easy soldering. It’s got an adjustable spring clamp and an insert with slots for holding Dean’s Ultra Plugs, Losi EC3, Traxxas High-Current Connectors (just the gold tab, not the whole thing), and others. If you turn it on it’s side it’s got holes to hold various sizes of bullet connectors. The whole thing is milled out of 6061 aluminum and then it’s black anodized. The aluminum will also help keep the connector cool while you solder so that you don’t melt the plastic casing.
This is definately a cool little tool that any electric driver should be adding to their tool box. You can pick one up direct from STL for $49. Check out STL’s site for more info.
