Inspired by others (thanks guys you know who you are) I decided to make a stand for my iPod Touch 3G (which doesn't come with a stand) using that stationary staple.........binder clips. Although some clever designs have been shown before, I wanted one that could accept the charging cable so it could sit on my desk all day.
I've been reading the site for ages and kept meaning to contribute (although I'd thought my first instructable would be something spectacular not this !!!) .........but hope this is of interest to some.
UPDATE - I've added some more detail is steps 4 and 5 - enjoy :-)
Step 1: The Build List
For this stand you will need :
2 x Large binder clips
2 x Medium binder clips
2 x Small binder clips
Alternatively variations on the above and some time to work out how to assemble them so it works for you :-)
1 x Pair of pliers (Grips for those not in the UK) or a multitool or really strong fingers
15 x minutes (including making a coffee and drinking it whilst admiring your new stand)
