Hold This So I Can See

EVERYONE has stood in a workshop, frustrated enough to trade their self-respect for magnifying steampunk goggles and an extra set of hands, after growling at a helper for the fifteenth time: “Hold this still for me, PLEASE, so I can see.”

We all know this. I’m just the only honest one of us. It’s ok. Today’s Cool Tool means you never have to trade your self-esteem for brass eyewear loaded with useless gears. At least, not until Comic-Con; then, do all you want with your cosplay pals — what happens at Comic-Con, stays at Comic-Con.

Unless someone has a camera phone. Then everyone on YouTube sees. Okay: that’s a bad example.

But in your workshop? YOU reign supreme, and you alone, and when you ARE alone, here you go – an extra pair of hands, beneath a magnifying glass, no less.

Perfect for soldering, sizing, or what have you.

Also perfect for Father’s Day.
