Project: Third Hand Tool Build

Project: Third Hand Tool Build

I decided to build a Third Hand tool to lend a hand with some future projects rather than buy one at a store. For those that don't know what a third hand tool is. Basically its a crucial tool in doing successful electronics work. Giving you the ability to hold items while soldering. 

Ok i started with the steel plate, I ground down the edges a bit and painting it with Red enamel paint. While that is drying i start snapping together the Log-line parts (the tool is worth the money makes it go way easier) I left the nozzles off for the time being. Next i screwed the bolts to the alligator clips. I wanted to make it so i can remove the alligator clips if i wanted the ability to change things up so i decided to tap all the nozzle's with a 8/32 bolt Once that is done i screwed them into the alligator clips and connected them to the Log-Line hose

Done.
