handy little helpers.

Left: microlady leg rig. Right: microlady arm rig.

made these micro-rigs the other day to help me disassemble/assemble Microlady parts (mainly those held together by pins). Made these after realizing that doing the process in my old way spent too much time and did too much damage to my work area, so I built these things to hold the parts steady while I work.

The process is basically wedging the part into the holding rig that was designed to fit it tightly (2) and using a small screw bit and a hammer to extract the pins into the catcher holes embedded at the bottom of the rig (3)

With the rigs, there's less chance of breakage on the pins, and no damage to my desk or fingers, lol.
