    If you're in the UK try the stores listed in the article I recommend them as ones I've used personally, if you're in the US or would like to look around, check Ebay for X-Acto handle or X-acto copy for the handle part, and crocodile clip for the clips. There are the names listed in the article for you to search in Google/Froogle, good luck!

    I just use an old beat up pair of needlenose pliers with a thick rubber band wrapped around the handle. Turns the pliers into grips. I think that's even cheaper.

    These are great ideas. I had some luck finding the hand vises on Amazon. Thanks for the tip. They appear to be a standard tool in the the jeweler/watchmaking tool kit.

    As long as the figure is not too large, or too heavy, I CA them to the plastic tops of pop bottles or milk carton covers. It makes a handy little stand for them, as well as to handle them during painting. The tops are also useful for mixing small quantities of paint in.
