    Soldering Aid

    Just a simple little jig using a helping hand from HF and some wood with a couple of cloths pins...(Does anyone use cloths pins any more) ?

    The brass wire clamps were replacements for the original alligator clips which are quite hard on the insulation.

    Round un-insulated (bullet) connectors may be held inside the cloths pins.

    Cheers, JR

    The use of the crocodile clip is great for not hurting the insulation and the clothes pins, nice old school!! Thanks for sharing it.

    Lucky catch on eBay. I did not know they were called crocodile clips. Thanks. JR
