I needed help testing parts that have tiny leads using a micro-ohmmeter. (Cannot use J-hooks! “Micro-ohms.”) The micro-ohmmeter does not have a GPIB or rs232 interface, purchasing an interface card cost too much, and asking for help can be expensive, aggravating, and time-consuming. I have been using my elbow to push a button while I hold the probes on tiny leads. That has not worked out well.
Anyway, I needed some form of assistance to test the parts so, I made a button-pusher called the Igvier. …got a-lot of laughs but, sometimes the stupidest ideas can be the greatest cost and time saver as well as personal reward.
