The Weller Soldering Work Station Mat is super handy both for shop use and for field repairs or installations. The high temperature silicone resist burning even when your Iron is very hot, plus it doesn’t “sink” heat away from the tip. That saves time since you don’t have to wait for a tip to come back to temp. With this mat, you can skip the heavy vice and bulk extras. That makes set up faster AND makes this perfect for a traveling soldering station. It rolls up to fit inside the display box with room left over for a cordless soldering iron! That’s HUGE for those of us who make field repairs of electronic equipment! And when you’re done with a job, it all rolls up safely and neatly to go back into the box; no waiting for the tip to cool down. My primary uses for this are installing guitar and bass pickups and repairing musical instrument cables and amplifiers. I also do some recording studio wiring that requires soldering such as making or repairing “audio snakes” and patch-bays. Having this heat-proof mat makes it MUCH easier because I don’t have to worry about expensive consoles being scarred by a carelessly placed Iron. The compartmentalized sections make storing and sorting small parts a breeze. Because this mat lays flat and stays in place, there is little chance of knocking small parts onto the floor. I like this so much, I had to buy another one just for my traveling repair kit. Highly recommended!

WELLER SOLDERING MAT This silicon mat from Weller really does work. It did not matter whether I was working on a metal work bench or a wooden table this mat made a difference. There was no heat loss, because you needed to put the iron down, even when you couldn't put it in its stand. It didn't allow the heat transfer into the fender of my old jeep, while soldering a hole in the old metallic radiator. It also preformed while in the foot well of my truck, to solder the trailer brake wires, for a more solid connect to the 18- and 20-gauge automotive wire connection. The added benefit of the various compartments and boxes on the mat, make disassembly and reassembly of your project even easier than the use of a magnetic tray that holds those screws and nuts, too securely. It took me way too long to get into the 20th century.

I thought this was a just a simple soldering mat, but it has several neat features. It’s a lot better than the tin-foil covered carpet remnant I have been using. FEATURES I LIKED: - Even though it is stowed rolled up in a box, it lays out flat quite easily. It does not curl. - It has four magnetic “hot spots” to hold small metal parts like resistors, LEDs etc - It has embossed rulers near the top (1 to 14 inches) and bottom (1 to 36 centimeters). Makes for easy measuring or wires. - Three small storage compartments with lids (for small parts). - Two sets of numbered storage “boxes” along the right side. The first set is numbered 1 through 124. The second set is numbered 1 through 30. These provide a place to organize & layout your small electronic components (LEDs, capacitors, screws etc.) when planning your work. There are also larger “layout boxes” around the perimeter for organizing larger components and planning your work. FEATURES THAT COULD BE IMPROVED: My only issue is the embossed numbers on the rulers and “organizing boxes”. They are difficult to see as they are red numbers on a red background. It would be helpful, and easier to see if they were white characters on red background (or black on red). OVERALL: This is a great product even if you do a small amount of soldering work. Especially if you do printed circuit board assembly or repair. I could see how this would make it easier to organize your work and be more efficient.

A perfect solution for making any table a soldering and small task workstation since I don't have a designated area / table when repairing electronics, eye-glasses, you name it .... This weighted, anti-slip workstation mat protects the table and has magnetic areas and closable compartments for storage and for keeping items in place...... Some of the things I like: it's easy to roll up and store when not in use; it has a ruler imprinted on the mat, the small compartment areas are labeled so they can be cross-referenced with diagrams or notes...... One thing to keep in mind: it's not anti-static rated so that will limit some of its uses...... Overall, it's an excellent addition to keeping my small projects organized.

I used this Weller mat while making some pieces out of solder and then soldering them onto rings of copper wire. The mat made it much easier to keep all the pieces organized and to insure that I did not burn the underlying surface. Keeping the table and bench surface from getting burned is one of the hazards associated with my home projects as I don't have a basement, garage, etc where working with solder can be done with fear of burning up a table, bench, etc. I'm glad to have this mat to use to keep small pieces organized in the covered pockets and to protect the work surface.. I'd been using a piece of drywall with metal flashing over it and this is a great alternative to that. This Weller mat is lightweight but very protective. I hope you find this helpful.

I'm a semi-retired I.T. technician, so this review comes from that standpoint. The new Weller soldering mat (model #WLACCWSM2-02) is working well for me. I’m using it as a disassembly/assembly mat as much as I am a soldering mat. I do have a couple of issues (see the attached photos) - the molded in rulers are difficult to read; the gradations are the same color as the mat itself. Also, the lower right corner didn't lay flat for a few hours after I deployed the workmat. I couldn't find any information about ESD specs - there's no provision for grounding the workmat and there are four magnets embedded in the mat, so caution is advised. For my purposes, the ESD isn't likely to be a problem, but YMMV. No downgrade in rating for this because Weller doesn't specifically market this model for electronics (although the advertising photos might lead you to believe that it's designed for that purpose). The quality of the silicone mat is fine, no rough edges or corners. There are three covered individual compartments that are working pretty well for holding laptop housing screws. The magnetic areas are strong enough to restrain small parts from walking off but, again, magnets and electronic bits and pieces don't mix nicely. No soldering tools or supplies come in the box, just the workmat itself. Overall size is 17 1/2" x 11 3/4". The mat, made in China, comes with a 180-day return policy. HTH Regards, Jim

Weller has developed a very fine soldering work station matt. It is made a a thick soft vinyl, with sections for holding items needed when soldering, within reach, while working on repairs, or making a useful item. I found that The size is perfect 11X75" X 17 X .5", as it fits nicely on my work surface. One side has snap closures keeping the smallest items confined .This is a product I will be using often..

Weller and I go back some 58 years when I first purchased their dual heat soldering gun. It came with good instructions and two very helpful soldering tools. One survives today (picture) and the other broke and was discarded. Those were made in the USA. The gun was since donated and was still working for the donation. Today's Weller Soldering Work Station is made in China. There are no instructions or any disclaimer showing what the mat is made of. However Weller does show pictures of various electrical components being worked on the mat. Visited Weller's website showing another picture orientation of this mat listed under consumer use. Their website does not list if the mat is ESD safe or what the mat is made of. They indicate it is made of silicon base material. Weller unfortunately must think that ESD does not play a role within consumer electronics. Use instructions were nowhere to be found. This is a big disappointment since my previous experience with Weller products self taught me how to solder at the ripe old age of 15 years or so. During my career was trained by High Reliability Soldering School China Lake CA. and other employers in ESD and IPC standards. ESD could be called the silent killer for electronics and having the right equipment is a must. However could not determine if this mat is made for electronic servicing since there are no provisions made for grounding hence the rating. The mat also contains magnets embedded within the mat but are visible on the bottom but not on the top. These can hold pesky steel plated small screws. Also, there is a provision to accommodate Weller soldering tools and three sealable component compartments. However the catalogue shows one configuration on the upper left hand side, the right handed version is the one in the box. Due to the lack of ESD material identification, no ESD grounding provisions, the lack of instructions, be very cautious in the purchase of this mat for use with sensitive consumer electronics..

WELLER SOLDERING WORK STATION MAT, I got this mat for the garage when I’m tinkering around with the motorcycle I wanted to use them under the front and rear tires and also for when I’m soldering my artwork I need this mat to work in a space without movement from the mat also the ability to solder without worry of damaging my work space. This mat provides a space that is not damaged by my tools as well different compartments for the small tools and attachments I use. The color is bright and vibrant which adds to a uplifting mood! Yes color of your environment is everything to me. The material is of high quality, has great flexibility and Works well for what I chose it for, I didn’t want to get anything on it as far as Soldering but it happened! To my surprise ZERO damage to this mat! I love it there are compartments I can place my small bolts and tool attachments in on my work space, and when working soldering my art work. I love the flexibility of this mat to have the ability to do both task that I chose it for all with one mat. This mat lays onto the table flat and doesn’t move until I move it that’s so important when doing the type work that I do. When you see the quality you’re tempted to not use it because it’s actually beautiful! but go ahead the quality far exceeds what you think may harm your mat! I went ahead and got a second mat and I’m a super happy camper. because it is of the exact quality and durability. Pros & Pros Durable, Flexible, High Quality, Small Compartments for tools, Lays flat, stays in place and Beauitful color.

I received my Weller soldering mat today; this is a massive workstation mat with many magnetic areas to securely hold parts in place. The mat comes with three storage areas with hinged covers to keep small parts in place. This Weller mat is not only suitable for soldering but can be used for other various assembly jobs. Overall, I like that the mat rolls up for easy storage, is heat resistant, and separate areas that will come in handy when disassembling items.
