Stand for Weller WMRT Tweezers Rev 2

I didn't know they made desoldering tweezers! This could make my life so much easier.
This is going on my shopping list

It's amazing there aren't more of them on the market. The choice now is between this ($400-$600) and a pair for $19.99 that look like they're for some kind of veterinary work. The Weller is German-made and of very high quality. Heats from ambient to 660 degrees in like 3 seconds. Definitely life-changing.

I should add that the base station accounts for 2/3 of the price of the Weller system. Once you've got that you can also add a standard "pencil" type iron for $150 - $100 and switch between it and the tweezers.

It's a lot of money but I should think it'll last for many years. Plus given that "time is money" in the long run it'll make up for the expense in time saved and stress averted.

Yep. My policy is never to scrimp on tools.
