One Handed Soldering

Postby icanswim70 » Fri Oct 11, 2019 11:14 am

I've always had a helper that assisted me with soldering as I can only use one hand. Scheduling is making it extremely difficult to coordinate. So... is it possible to solder with one hand? Are there tools available to make it possible (I.E One Handed Solder Guns, Tools, Techniques?)

Indeed, those handy tools are called a third hand.
I love them when working on the bench, but it's more challenging when working under the playfield.
