This handy little gizmo makes soldering plugs a breeze! The clamp features cavities that will accommodate 2mm and 3.5mm bullet plugs, XT-60 plugs, T-Connectors, Traxxas plugs and many more while up top you will find holes for 5.5mm and 4mm bullet connectors.
Specs. Size: 53mm x 49mm x 20mm Weight: 103g Material: Aluminum
* Note: Aluminum is a conductive material, never place 2 plugs from the same battery pack in Mr Jig simultaneously or he will get upset.
Wayne, I have this very model coming, they have two models you know, the other has carbon fiber top plate. Its a "New Item" I think. It wouldn't be so conductive. But if you are using a 15 watt iron like i was trying, you're right the alll alum. plate would hinder the soldering process which is why I also have the 60w vari/temp. soldering station coming as well Hehehe
my English is .. bad XDD
I use solder 80-100 amp
well be melted tin
tin should run between conductors
tin should be of good quality, with flux
mi ingles es .. malo XDD
para soldar yo uso 80-100 amperios
hay que fundir bien el estañ*o
el estañ*o debe correr entre los conductores
el estañ*o debe ser de buena calidad, con fundente
The hole sizes are as follows: 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm.
It could be used, just that they will sit loosely in the 4mm hole.
Alternatively, you could clamp them under the plate held by the wingnut, as there are some grooves there which would hold smaller pins.
Mr grippy is far better its not made from ally ( a frequently used heatsink material) and carbon has some albeit not large resistance for those who do put both battery connectors in at once (still not recomended)
The problem is that when you put an EC5 pin in the jig it specificly cools it. This means that a hotter iron is required to heat the combined mass of the pin and the aluminimum block to achieve a proper melt on the solder. A plastic bodied connector like an deans type is still going to deform as the plastic will melt from the inside. Proper soddering tequnique will aviod this problem.
Awesome product, great tool, superb build quality, except the thread for the winged screw is a bit too tight.
I am glad that I have bought two, so I have one in reserve.
Thank you Hobby King!

Excellent quality very happy with mine was using the old wooden block before for banana plugs etc but this works miles better as now when i solder XT60 or Deans they dont start to melt if the soldering iron is on ther for to long.
Nice one HobbyKing MR JiG is the MAN !
This is one of the most decent purchases that I have ever made. Got 2 of them and even got a refund of $4.00 for sharing the buddy code. The quality of this JIG is superb. Its milled from a solid aluminium block and has a very smooth and a shiny finish. The jig comes with four rubber feet and is very easy to use. I used it for soldering my XT60 connectors and it is very easy to solder once the connector is clamped in the jig. No short circuits as not part of the connector touches the jig, except for the nylon case. However, one needs to be careful soldering bullet connectors while connected to a power source. It surely is a quality product and very nice and handy to use.
