We gotta solder this and that or the other thing at the same time or it just won't work.
This helping hands tool is for all the poor hobby techs like me.
Step 1: The Find
By the time I got home I knew what my next project would be.
Step 2: Lose the Junk
The tabs on the ball mount must be cut off and smoothed.
Step 3: Pieces
Brass or tin would be better for the plate (probably .032) but I used what I had.
Match drill the ball mount and plate for #6x1/4in sheet metal screws.
Tin both ends of each wire, then bend a hard 90 onto one end for the alligator clip connection. Tin the board and solder it up like the picture shows.
Step 4: Parts
Reassemble and check out the useful mobility of the assembly.
Yes, it IS flexible and compliant. Just like my women.
(In my dreams...Ahhhh).
