Make a tool fence for your hand tools to hang on.
3mm(2.5mm)  clear plexiglass lets you see through to items behind.
The magnets sit on a 403 stainless steel sheet covered with Teflon.

If you have ever tried to drag solder a fine pitched I.C. package, you will know it can be challenging.
Even solder paste, stencils and ovens can give different success rates.
The Gull Wing soldering tip can make this job much easier.
For basic soldering, I use a curved tip and change to the Gull Wing for fine pitched components.
Allways use liquid flux and of course practice.
I use the Hakko FX888D soldering iron, but it is next to impossible to buy these tips for this iron.
I think there is a patent issue.
You can make your own version of these tips from a simple Bevel tip.
Use diamond burrs to hollow out the tip, slow speed is best.
The Bevel tip shown below had a thick iron coating which was not breached.

See these YouTube links for tips for usage.

Plato sells Gull Wing tips compatible with the FX888D soldering iron.

Make a high quality clamp or spring vice from a few inexpensive components.

- 1.25" Binder Clip
- 6-32 nylon standoffs
- 6-32 screws and nuts
- .5 or .75" rare earth magnet with cup.

Drill a 9/32" hole in the side and bottom of the binder clip (the clip steel is very hard).
Add 6-32 screws and nuts to the binder clip.
Screw the clip assembly to the standoff and magnet.

You can mount the clip either horizontal or vertical.
