Using a Third Hand Tool
by Kristal Wick
I don't know about you but I can use all the help I can get when it comes to working with wire! When I started out in the WWW (Wonderful World of Wire), I was so clumsy, especially when wire wrapping. I tried to talk my bestie into coming over every time I wire wrapped so she could hold one end of my project while I wrapped away! LOL! Well, you can imagine how that went over...NOT! So, I found this nifty Single Third Hand with Tweezers and my life has been forever changed!
Instructions
The tweezers are really grippy so you can use them to clamp onto many things. I haven't experienced them making any marks on my wire, but you could place a small piece of latex (such as a rubber glove) in the jaws to prevent any marring if you desire.
This divine contraption frees up both hands and you can wrap until your hearts content. It's especially great for beginners and for gripping onto super small areas that your fingers just can't hold onto securely. I hope you find it as life changing as I do!
