that acts like a hand that clamps on a small item like the deans connector. It has a base also.

I think they're just called helping hands, with a couple alligator clips on swivels and a magnifying glass.

yeah my dad uses one of those...can't find the name though. You can search for "hobby clamp" or "hobby vice" but those are different and not quite as good for the really small stuff.

I use a pair of pliers or needle nose and a rubber band for deans. I have a one of those "helping hands" and seems like it just never will get the right angle for what I'm looking to do with deans. Does work great for tinning and small wire work.

You can also make a simple one yourself just using a piece of wood, some CA, and some wood clothespins. The wood clothespings work great.

Not my setup (I found it on the web), but it shows the clothespin vice anyone can make. I use one just like it.

All you need is a table vice for the deans and a cloths pin & the same vice for bullets as shown on the above post.

30 bucks for on of those fancy jigs sure would buy a bunch of cloths pins and rubber bands. Maybe enough left over for a few beers. Most of us have that stuff laying around.
