    This is a classic. I finally got around to making one. I made my workstation from wood and drilled holes to mount the arms (via 3-way junctions, machine screws, and hex nuts.) This way the arms can spin.Mounting the attachments to the loc line was an issue because I didn't have nozzles handy. I also wanted more flexibility. So I hotglued 8-32 nylon thumbscrews like the ones here below into the links. glue bonds well to nylon and I hope to the plastic of the loc line. Time will tell, but it seems really solid. I like this solution because I can mount anything that fits onto an 8-32 screw with an acorn nut, hex nut, or even a decorative filial (pictured). Thanks again for the idea!
