    Default 3rd Hand

    I work alone most of the time, so I am always looking for that "3rd hand" or "skyhook." I came up with the idea of using a tripod for work on uneven ground. I tapped a small piece of channel to the size of the screw on the tripod and then can use most styles of clamps to secure the work.Alturus job.jpg

    Mike, maybe you can "branch" out!

    Hand out some "leaf-lets" for advertisements

    Gives new meaning to "root" pass!

    Is the "3rd hand" a "truncated" version?

    I better stop, I'm running out of smiley faces..................
