    DIY Third Hand For Soldering, Gluing, Hobby Work, etc.

    DIY 3rd hand for holding wires while soldering, holding small parts to be glued / painted or other.




    MATERIALS
    - 4 mm wire (about 15 inches or about 38 cms)
    - 2 alligator clips (size as desired)


    WARNINGS:
    - Soldering can be dangerous. If you do not know soldering safety, learn it or don't solder.
    - Never solder live circuits of any type.
    - Soldering house wiring, power wiring, etc. is outside the scope of this video. That should be left to professionals only.
    - Electricity can cause damage, fires, burns and death. If you don't know about electricity, learn before doing.
    - These are demonstrated for hobby work, low voltage - low amperage applications. NOT for mains voltages or currents or similar.
    - Never use lead type solders where it will come in contact with food or drink or where it will come in regular contact with people.
    - Lead is toxic. Take care to ensure that the byproducts / waste are contained and disposed of properly. Never hold solder in your mouth. Have proper ventilation.
    - This is for hobby soldering only. Industrial users have more stringent requirements for industrial or large scale soldering operations.
    - This is not all inclusive. If you don't know, get training before continuing.
