Electric Vacuum Pen From Aquarium Air Pump.


Step 29: THe Alligator Clip.

Picture of THe Alligator Clip.
While the tip is drying lets work on our valve cover clip.

First off we need to cut the bottom lip off of the alligator clip so the top can sit against the nose cone when we attach it to the pen.

I recommend using a Dremel tool for this while pinching open the clip.  If you don't pinch it open the pressure from the upper clip will start to buckle the lower clip making it harder to cut.
