electronics kits third hand soldering iron

Workholding Octopus

I know, not a very elegant name, but the description fits. I fabricated the contraption from mild steel and pre-existing plastic parts. That base is solid steel bar stock, gives it some nice weight. There is something similar in common use called a 'Third Hand', but I thought I'd take it a step further.

All the other items pictured (soldering iron, flush cutters, electronics projects) were Christmas gifts from Santa for Ocean and I.
