New PCB magnetic plate clamp testing

I just had ordered a new PCB magnetic plate clam because I always wanted this for long time and because I have lot of soldering and PCB works to do in coming days. For now, I will need this a lot for building my Arduino robot car and for the cigarette tobacco filling machine. 

 I couldn't contain my excitement as I eagerly waited for the delivery of my new PCB magnetic plate clamp. It had been a long-time dream of mine to own one, and I knew it would be an invaluable addition to my DIY electronics workspace. With a multitude of soldering and PCB projects lined up, including building an Arduino robot car and a cigarette tobacco filling machine, I needed a tool that could simplify the process and make my projects more efficient.

The PCB magnetic plate clam is a specialized tool designed to securely hold and position printed circuit boards (PCBs) during soldering, assembly, and testing. It consists of two magnetic plates with adjustable angles and a set of clamps to secure the PCB in place. Here's how it works and why it's so useful for DIY electronics circuit makers like me:

    Magnetic Holding: The two magnetic plates have strong magnets embedded within them. When you place a PCB on the lower plate, it instantly holds the board firmly in place without the need for traditional clamps or fixtures. This feature is particularly handy when you're working on intricate soldering tasks that require precision.

    Adjustable Angles: The magnetic plates are designed with adjustable angles, allowing you to position the PCB at various angles to suit your work. This flexibility is crucial when you're working on components located on different sides of the board or when you need to access specific areas for soldering or troubleshooting.

    Hands-Free Operation: With the PCB securely held in place by the magnetic field, you have both hands free to work on your project. This eliminates the need to hold the PCB with one hand while soldering or manipulating components with the other, making your work more precise and reducing the risk of damaging the board or the components.

    Versatility: The PCB magnetic plate clam is versatile and can accommodate various sizes of PCBs. This means you can use it for a wide range of electronic projects, from small Arduino-based gadgets to larger PCBs for more complex systems.

    Time and Effort Savings: One of the most significant advantages of using a PCB magnetic plate clam is the time and effort it saves. It streamlines the soldering and assembly process, making it quicker and more efficient. This is especially crucial when you have multiple projects in the pipeline, like my Arduino robot car and cigarette tobacco filling machine.

As I eagerly unboxed my new PCB magnetic plate clam, I knew it was going to be a game-changer for my DIY electronics endeavors. With this tool by my side, I was confident that I could tackle my upcoming projects with greater ease, precision, and confidence, bringing my electronic creations to life in a more efficient and professional manner. It was a small investment that promised to yield significant returns in the quality and efficiency of my work. Below video shows how I used it for the cigarette tobacco filling machine.
