“A pen-shaped, and very stylish soldering iron”

FabLab Solidaire Egypt   -  Egypt

SPIN, is a soldering iron made for and by makers: you hold it like a pen and simply apply pressure with your index finger to make it work! This presents several advantages: increased control over component parts and energy consumption strictly limited to what is needed as the pen is only activated when pressed. Important for efficient and environmentally responsible use of makers’ favourite tool.
