Vice Petite

Introducing my
Vice Petite!

Ladies, tired of those cramped hands while trying to solder??  I was! So I made up some new little gadgets to relieve some of the problem.

My little Vice Petite is hand made, right here in the USA, in my backyard!  WH and I whipped up a few prototypes, okay, many, and voila!  We have a handy, dandy little third hand holder for your soldering iron projects.

You could make one of these, OR go to the hardware store about 50 times like we did to get the right everything!!  What a pain that was.

But, I'm thrilled with the outcome.

You just position your piece in the opening, move the sliding piece forward, tighten it down and it makes a nice, secure, but soft bed for your project.

Then you can rotate your work however you like, since I used really lightweight wood.  I chose one of my favorite blues, and painted these girls up pretty for you!

How do you like the name I chose?  I put "small vice" into a translator converting English to French, and it read "vice petite", so that's what the name will be for this little sweetie.

To read more about it you can visit my Esty store here.

Thanks for looking, hope you are having an exceptional day, whatever that might be.
