ProTip: Use wooden clothespins if you need to elevate a board for soldering. Unlike metal or even dense plastic, they don't wick away heat as easily so you don't need to keep the soldering iron tip on the components as long

@cypnk OH MY GOD THIS IS BRILLIANT! I literally have a whole bin of wooden clothes pins like, 5 ft away from where I usually do soldering and I just... Never thought.

@cypnk wooden clothepins are as uyeful as a swiss army knife 🙂

@cypnk Wooden clothes pins also make cheap and reusable substitute for plastic chip clips, bread ties and small binder clips.
