Easy third hand device

Find yourself an inexpensive particle board or plastic clip board. Slice the board with a jig saw right across where the edge of the clip lines up. This will leave you with the clip attaached to a narrow strip of board; there will be two wings on either side of the clip which you can drill holes through to attach your homemade third hand device to your bench. Don't want to put holes in your bench?? Attach it with velcro strips.
There you have it....

Good idea on the chip clip, I saw some decent metal ones in the dollar store the other day but decided to go with the sturdier installation of the clip board.
PS I got inspired after rereading the second edition of Production Fly Tying the other day.
