The patented Made in USA Original Spider was developed to assist in placement of embellishments and Bails that are sometimes difficult to position. Many time it is cumbersome to use the conventional Third Hand due to its limited flexibility and high heat sink propertie. The Spider makes positioning embellishments that are to small to hold a much easier task, It allows you to place components accurately without having to fiddle with adjustments that may change when the solder melts and saves time when setting up to solder small components.
The Original Spider is most often used on silver jewelry with a backplate size of over 1 square inch,
The Cold Rolled Steel Original Spider is delivered with 3 Legs, approximately 90, 45 and 22.5 degrees..
