Orginizing Multple soldering irons Wiring???

(1/2) > >>

AlbertZeroK:
I'm looking for ideas on how to organize the wires from my soldering stations to my irons.  Any ideas?

I want them to be available at all times, so disconnecting the cables isn't an option



Because some one is going to ask:

Yes, I am a bit OCD, like having the right tools for the job, and I like my tools to be available quickly and on demand. 

This is a hot knife, tweezers, insulation cuter, second tweezers, two pace irons with different tips, de-soldering station and two hot air rework stations (one typically used for heat shrink, the other for smd work).  I have another station to add for placing brass threaded inserts into 3d prints.

Jester:
This helps

SteveyG:
Try putting the soldering stations under the bench, that way the cables naturally drape down into the right place.

like here !?

Shock:
Dangling off the side of the bench (rather than the front) allows you to keep all the stations up top and at any reasonable height as the cable routing is all out of the way, it looks tidy as well. Even better is move the stations onto a side bench or shelf. Use that new dead space to "park" your optics.

The downside is the sponge and brass wool are harder to access, so you use an external wool holder or cleaner. It's way more efficient having one wet sponge and wool for all tools.

I use the Pace cleaning station and tools 6021-0006-P1, 1100-0233-P1, 1100-0232-P1 and a Hakko style wool holder. That way I can clean all tips (even rework ones) in one spot and keeps dross off the floor. It's shown in this video which sold me on the idea and something like this is key if the handpieces are off to one side.
