As someone who enjoys soldering various different stuff, this is a great helping hand for doing your soldering projects. I can remember countless times where I didn’t have enough hands and failed to solder perfectly but this gizmo will let you do that, and you can make it yourself!
If you are doing a lot of soldering, I highly recommend you make this FIRST!
I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to build and it was just a matter of execution. Now, this certainly isn’t the cheapest solution, a pair of the original helping hand can be purchased from Harbor Freight for as little as $3, but if you’re looking for greatly enhanced function and usability I highly recommend building one of these, it’s quickly becoming the handiest tool in my collection.
