Default Helping hand or hands!

I know we all need a helping hand at some point and most of the ones I've seen (and in fact the one I have) only have two.

This one has 7 'Crazepony-UK Soldering Station Tool'
Might be handy for some one

Do you have to stand and sing the National Anthem before you use it?

Has anyone tried this style of helping hand before and are they any good?

I have the small one on heavy metal base with small circular mag glass and 2 helping hands. Have found it useful on several occasions, as by the time i have found heather, and she has walked upstairs, i have used this. john
