    This fixture allows you to rotate a stove to the best angle for soldering.
    It allows you to hold the stove securely without denting it.
    You can even turn the stove upside down by simply wiring it to the dowel rod
    To avoid the need for exact hole placement, I drilled the holes slightly oversize and epoxied the pins in place with the stove attached.
    Of course you still need to wrap the stove in wet rags when soldering.

    Good idea! :thumbup:

    Just add rotary head and angle can be adjusted accurately. :content:
