Threaded Insert Soldering Iron Tip Storage

I’m collaborating with someone at my maker space to build a threaded insert press for the space. I’m handling the base. As part of that I’m integrating storage for the different tips.

3D printed a storage fixture with magnets added into the bottom. It will set into a recess in the base that will have matching embedded magnets.

I sanded the top smooth up to 1500 grit and then lightly flamed polished. Masked and then laser engraved the lettering and backfilled with paint.

I’ll post more about the press as it comes along.


You deserve a tip for that!
