    Ran into a problem with some board debug where I kept on needing one hand to hold a scope probe, one hand to control an oscilloscope and then another hand to control the computer to start and stop the firmware.

    For those of you counting, that was 3 hands.... it was not going well :)

    I also found it difficult to keep using a microscope to probe fine pitch parts.

    Came up with a jig which holds the scope probe and has a "vision" system which allows placing the probe without a microscope.

    Perhaps of use to other members? Attached is a link to a youtube video
