I found these on Thingaverse and they looked useful.

I have printed the soldering fingers and they work well, if like me you have trouble holding wires while soldering them together they are a godsend.

Very nifty.
I've used one of those Helping Hands thingummyjigs for years, though I have modified it to make it a lot more sophisticated ..... by adding wooden clothes pegs to the crocodile clips ...... :lol:

(It enables me to hold things like circuit boards without damaging them.)

PS Good to see you back in action Graeme. I hope you're now fully recovered and fighting fit :thumbright:
