Title: Preheater Board Holder
Post by: squ1d_ink on December 08, 2021, 07:34:09 am
I just picked up Pace ST400 preheater and I am looking for a good board holder.  Need somthing that can do boards from ATX motherboard size to small credit card sized boards.  Pace, Metcal, and Hakko all have good designs but what I am finding hard to swallow is the price-$500-$1000.  I have no problem paying the high price for good gear but what is being asked for a good board holder feels like a shot to the nutts. I am hoping I have missed a reasonable priced choice that someone can point me too.  Any  thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated.
