There’s always those times when you wished you had an extra pair of hands. 1mikey77’s ‘Ultimate Helping Hand Jig’ might not be an extra pair of hands, but it could be useful to those who solder, glue, paint or just do jobs that are fiddly in nature.
The Hand Jig is highly configurable and can hold a number of different objects in various positions. It has six configurable, lock in place, arms with interchangeable grippers. While mikey’s version is printed on a MakerBot Replicator 2 in PLA, it can be made using traditional manufacturing techniques.
The gripper donuts can be cast in silicone or Oogoo and were cast using donutmold.stl.
Here’s a list of extra parts needed:
- 24 4-40 x 1″ round head screws and nuts
- 6 4-40 x 3/4″ round head screws and nuts
- 2 1/2″ diameter x 3/8″ long neodymium magnets
