Intro: How to Make a Cheap As Free, and Easy "helping Hands" for Small Parts.
Well, this morning (2.23.08) and yesterday (2.22.08), I was trying to solder something, but I didn't have a helping hands, so I made this this morning. (2.23.08)
It works GREAT for me, usually no problems.
VERY easy to make, basically free, all you need is less than 10 seconds (unless.... look at next step) of your life.
I hope you like it!
Step 1: Gather Your Materials.
- Box. Any size, big or small.
- 10 or less (or maybe more unless you have problem finding a box.) seconds of your life.
- Something to poke holes with.
- Vacuum cleaner.
- 3 oranges.
- Video camera.
Step 2: Poke Any Hole(s).
Now is when you actually do whatever you want.
Poke the hole(s) wherever you need to do it, just make sure you'll be able to solder the two things together.
Step 3: Add in Whatever.
Well, basically you're done!
Add in whatever you wanted to add in to solder, and solder away!
I hoped you liked my Tool-Tip Instructable!
Step 4: Extras.
As said above...
Well, here's some extras.
In the picture below, those are some solder blobs that landed on the floor (good thing I don't have carpet anymore).
You do NOT want this to happen to you.
Unless you want to have chances of burning down the house!
Step 5: Fixing Up.
Did you see those two resistors I soldered together?
You might have been wondering: How is he going to solder it to something else like that?"
Well, here's the answer.
Bend it, obviously.
Step 6: Why?
You might have been wondering why I soldered two resistors together.
Here's the answer: look at the pictures below.
Yeah. I carved a Lego figurine head. Here's the original idea from Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories.
Here's the linky link link!
Yes, I know. They did a wonderful job, and mine sucked. At least I did it though. And yes, I used a smaller LED.
