Instructables
Hello, i will show you how to make 3rd hand helper for only 1$ ?!
Yes it is possible!
I bet that everybody have some old heatsink from dead PC ?

oh yes, price list 4x aligator clips 36cents
                          wire 0.5 m 10 cents
                           heatsink depends, if you salvaged it from computer then 0$ but if you buy probably 50 cents
                           total price 96 cents (in Serbian valute its 70 din)
fan is optional but its also salvaged, probably most expensive thing will be magnifiyng glass (about 1 $ or less, i dont want some big ones)         , led is cheap( i will 100% put led on it, maybe 4 of them, one for each side, and 2 high so it will light 360)
  switch for led and fan, ......... 1000 configurations

if you like this instruction ,.....
P.S. if you didnt understand something just ask, i will answer. And also, sorry for my English, ......

First you will need hot glue gun and hot glue, and probably pliers
then you will need some solid core wires ( i used double wire because its more solid, more stable )
and last , but not least aligator clips ( i used 4 of them, smaller,bigger, it is your choice, maybe the best is combo of 2 big ones, and 2 smaller)

Step 3: Gluing

when you bend them, you just need to glue them in place
just be careful , dont mess like i did

Step 4: Adding aligator clips
