Stupid Ham Shack Tricks 4

Another one of my new favorite tools to use in the Ham Shack.  The Helping Magnifier.  If you have ever had to  solder crimp connectors on to a cable or hold a circuit board vertically to desolder a connection, this is the tool for you.

Helping MagnifierI purchased mine over a year ago from Harbor Freight, Item #00319.  I know I have seen them at other hardware stores, so they shouldn’t be hard to find.  I have resisted the “I need a magnifying glass” for a long time, but at my age I finally had to succumb to the need for addtional help.  So I finally got it out of the package a few days ago and I really don’t know how I did with out it.
