Solder Monster

The Solder Monster has four bendable arms to hold parts securely without damage.

The fifth arm is a vacuum tube for drawing away hazardous solder fumes. The wisps of smoke from solder contain harmful toxins. With the hose kit provided, attach this tube to your vacuum. Position it over your work to remove these fumes.

The plywood cabinet stores spools of wire, with eyelets to keep the wire from tangling. Holes in the top store your cutters, pliers and other wiring tools.

1. Attach the left and right sides to the base, using four flat-head wood screws. The holes in the sides are off-center; position them upward and toward the front.
