It’s a partially 3D printed tool that allows for mounting of a soldering iron so that when pressing brass heat set inserts into 3D printed parts they can be done with precision and control making your results squarer and more consistent.

I feel I’ve completely redesigned this tool since I first worked on it so I do not consider this a derivative, adaptation or modification of any previous design. Nevertheless here are the links for the old design that inspired my previous creation which led to this current design.

*soldering iron grips can come in any size so it will fit provided you use the right size, and don’t have some crazy 6ft soldering iron.
