GRS Solder Station Third Hand Maintenance

Thank you Rob! The project for tomorrow! I’ll have to sacrifice some pliers I think. Thanks all.


are you sureyour springs are bad…?…


I thought I’d add, that I occasionally wreck my springs by getting them too hot and messing up the temper. That’s why, I’ve occasionally had to replace them.

Thanks all! Okay was not the day for it but I think the springs in one side are for sure overheated and need replac8ng.

The text is SO small here! Typo cut6, sorry

I hadn’t thought about that possibility. I will be more careful in the future where I point my torch while I am fluxing, adding solder chips or just thinking. Thanks…Rob


Thanks for everyone who helped. I’ve removed springs and ordered one new, ultrasonic and 3 in one oiled ball joints and flipped the messy board. I think it would be OK to file the third hand gripper points down to more of an extra fine point … lmk if that is ok idea.

Thank you!!
