When working with small parts, you come up with all kinds of creative ways to hold them so you don’t have to grow a third hand. Micro-Mark’s spring-loaded small parts holder may allow you to junk some of your jury-rigged creations.
This 4-1/4″ long by 1-1/4″ wide parts holder can grip regularly- or irregularly-shaped parts from 3/8″ to 1-3/8″ in diameter. The parts holder doesn’t use screws, clamps, or wedges that can apply to much pressure and damage your part; instead built-in springs hold the part against the “no-mar” plastic pins.
Normally Micro-Mark sells the parts holder for $9 but right now they have it on sale for $7 plus shipping.
