    after a few years distraction I've returned to modelling with the development of a couple of ideas around Cycle Car/ Karts and I need to make/buy a simplish chassis jig to compensate for a reduction in steadiness of hand. I need something that will positively hold parts in place for soldering. I have a 3D printer I can use to make it but having big trouble getting my mind around CAD especially 3D CAD. I could also use other materials so long as I don't over do it.

    any/all help welcomed

    Hello!

    For soldering you’ll need to use materials that can handle the heat.

    You might want to look in the tool catalogs offered by Rio Grande, a supplier of jewelry supplies.

    Soldering tweasers and fire bricks work for most of us.

    Machinists have one, two, three blocks which can be assembled in many configurations, . . .

    Many years ago I bought a book from a $1 remainder table. Metal Techniques for Craftsmen, by Oppi Uttrecht. While written for jewelry makers, it is a wealth of information on cutting, bending, hammering, soldering, brazing, casting chassis jig design and even some machining of small metal parts, and techniques are explained somewhere between layman and engineer - that is, craftsman, level. It's my first references when wondering how to do something to a piece of metal.
