In Sparkfun’s new product release they came out with a clever spin to the old helping hands. Many of you know, 1.0 helping hands (alligator clips) are tough to position and the base is never heavy enough to not tip over. Sparkfun came with a CNC inspired design, machined aluminum base plate and coolant hoses for helping hand arms. The base has 6 holes for six arms, so you never have to gang together two 1.0 versions ever again. Seems the design is also open source, drawing is available for the base plate. Carbide has some old 1/4in Lock-line laying around some where, we will have to build one!
Love the use of a taco holder
