Have you been need some helping hands, but are limited on materials? well then this instructable is just right for you! This uses only 4 simple things that most beginners have and if not, can buy them for very cheap! :)
Step 1: Materials:
To do this simple thing, all you will need is:
An altoids box
Some solid-core wire
2-4 Alligator clips
Solder (and something to melt it)
Step 2: Twist the Wire
You'll need to cut 2 pieces of wire at the same length and twist them together like in the picture. Make 2-4 of these twisted wires all at the same length. Also, remember to strip the tips of the wires for soldering (on BOTH ends of the wires)
Step 3: Soldering the Clips
Now you want to solder the clips to the wires
Step 4: Soldering (continued)
Now you need to solder them to the altoids tin.
Step 5: Done!
