StewMac PC Board Holder

About This Item

Make your delicate PCB work easy!
Working on small PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) is intricate work. One small slip can ruin a trace or melt a fragile component. You need both hands for these jobs, and holding your work steady is important for a clean connection (and so you don't burn yourself!).

Our PC Board Holder is adjustable to hold most PCBs and even small amp turret boards. The spring-loaded adjustable arms hold boards securely with notches for the most common sizes. Each notch is tapered to lock the board in place. The entire holder opens to a maximum of 7.87" (199.89mm) for larger boards.

Locks AND rotates for the perfect angle
The holder locks in four places to your board so it won't slip, slide, or move when you are working. You can rotate the board 360-degrees to find the perfect angle to work—even on a crowded board.

Perfect for our Pedal Kits
If you've ever worked on pedals, amps, piezo systems, or active preamps you'll save yourself the heartbreak and headache of accidentally destroying your work.

    Custom arms holds PCBs in four common thicknesses:
  • 5/64" (1.98mm)
  • 3/32" (2.38mm)
  • 1/8" (3.17mm)
  • 5/32" (3.9mm)

Max opening 7.87" (199.89mm). Some assembly required.

Never melt your work again!

Working on amps? Our Mojotone Amplifier Chassis Stand is perfect for holding larger chassis.

What a great little device!

By

Where has this been all my life? It makes it SO much easier to work on small circuit boards. Like having a second pair of hands.
Highly recommended!

Made putting together the 57 tweed kit a breeze! I am sure it will get plenty more use. Very well built.

I think my last review Bounced, so one more time...

I'm not writing that review again.

A picture speaks a thousand words. I'm working from home and incorporated this into my work as an HW engineer.

This is beautiful in its simplicity and functionality. Rotational degree of freedom is a joy for work and then display for video conf.

Stable!

Necessary for Circuit Board Soldering

By

I completed my Screamer pedal without the board holder, but it wasn't completely successful. I bought the board and have been working on some solder joints. I'd never try a pedal kit without the holder. The adjustment slides would benefit from a t-shaped screw-down instead of the small, round ones the unit comes with. It doesn't always hold because it slips if not tightened securely.

Pretty good, but

This is an OK PCB stand.Few things that I don't like;
- The locking mechanism is a pain. You have to turn locking screws while pressing on both sides of the stand to have the right tension on the board. A lever-type friction lock that you can flip with a thumb would be better.
- Not quite wide enough for even some amp kits StewMac sells. The eyelet board for the P-Reverb, for example, is too big for this stand.
- The PCB grips are metal. Plastic or something else less hard would be better.
But it's useful.

IT WORKS BETTER THAN HOLDING THE BOARD IN YOUR HAND

By

Verified Buyer


Decent price for what you get. Not a great holder, but adequate. Larger than I thought. Tension is only adjustable by pushing. Adjustable tension would be nice. The plastic holder is slippery and doesn't hold as solidly as it should. I roughed up mine with the tip of a needle file. I also added weights to the ends of the base arms. Overall, I still like it and would buy it again.

Where was this 20 years ago?

By

Verified Buyer


Used to build boards and pedals years ago, but quit because it was getting too hard to hold components in place as they began to get smaller. This little device is like having two extra hands. Love the multiple size slots for different thicknesses or widths. For the price, you can't find a better tool for building boards than this (except a good soldering iron)!

Why didn't I have this before?

By

Verified Buyer


Very handy device for PCBs, I'm shocked I had never gotten one before. Easy hold to mount components, then a quick flip to solder, just what you need.
4 instead of 5 starts because the width adjustment is a bit loose/sloppy, a thumbscrew and slide with lots of tolerance, I'd pay more for a machined fit between components.

Great for DIY pedal builds!

By

Wish I had this tool when I built my first DIY fuzz pedal last year. Working on a new DIY pedal and I've already saved at least 50% of the time it takes to stuff and solder a vero board. Cleaner work with much less cussing... lol.
