First of all, thank you for the dessign!

I made both stand for WXMP ans WXMT but i have one isue.
I'm using a 12x4mm neodin magnet, this is what i found on a local store, and the sensor it's not working. I have a WX2 station and i wonder if this function may be locked by software or the magnet itself is the problem.
Can you give me a suggestion?

For me the magnet has been very non-critical - anything works. I have no experience with the WX2 or WXMP but on the Weller site the info for WMRP says "The pencil powers down when placed in the tool holder to extend tip life" but for the WXMP it does not say this, so maybe the feature is not supported by WXMP.

Nice demonstration video!

Out of curiosity I looked up the original Weller stand, and egads that's expensive! I blows my mind that they charge $130 for something that can be so easily replaced.
