I recommend a better helping hands setup than shown in the kit in the OP photo. I have completed many soldering projects using those but recently found a much better setup. The brand for the one I just used is Nakoos but there are other similar brands. it is more about having the moveable gooseneck alligator clips with plastic coating to protect wires, heavy platform, and little magnetic pin things to support the soldering project. Lighted gooseneck magnifier awesome too. Just completed my last project and it was so much better.
