    Beats needing three hands to hold everything in some awkward places.

    Neat! Now we just a pencil iron system like a MIG/wire welder. That I would seriously consider when re-flowing PCB's.

    WOW! Now the one arm paper hangers can solder too. Getting it set up right would be challenging. When soldering the solder is applied to the joint not the soldering iron other than a tinning before making contact with the joint.

    A spool gun for soldering. That trigger looks like fun. I would just make a mess. LOL

    Yup. I'm thinking that mine would stick and empty the solder reel all over the place. :eek:
