Test Lead Holder
An open source wire lead holder that can be easily printed for any lab. Saving both time and money.
A commercial off the shelf wire holder would cost about $15, this holder will cost $2.03 to print and mount. It can be printed in just a few hours which would be much faster than if you had to order and ship one.
