that each part of the device discharges a function, the handle at this time being disposed outwardly of a side of the bowl, and the bail of the bowl being disposed in a horizontal posi-.

tion, approximately parallel with the arm 9',

the shoe 15 engaging the side 'of the bowl and,

together with that part of the arm 10 outwardly of the intersection 11, operating as a shoe 115 discharges a second function; 1 1 1 r It has been found that the device is of great advantage when used as illustrated in -Fig. -2

since the handle is disposed in a position remote from the bowl, and the latter may be conveni-' "ently supported while disposed in positions of 1 advantage during the operation of soldering,

Numeral 16 indicates a jacket or-cover for the handle, this covering consisting of any suitable material to operate, preferablmas a non-conductor of heat and electricity.

The loop 11 at the intersection of the arms 9 and 10 may be dispensed with provided the metallic strip mentioned has adequate strengthl for practical purposes, it being necessary, of course, that the device should be or rigid construction since the receptacle or bowl and its contents may have a considerable weight.

I claim as my invention, I 1. Ina holder for the purposes described,

a metallic strip bent between its ends to provide a handle and a pair of intersecting-arms, one of said arms being providedroutwardly' of said intersection with a'hook, the other arm of said pair being provided at its terminal, transversely thereof, with a shoe having a longitudinal curvature, said last named arm being bent to provide a supporting-member between said intersection and said shoe.

2. In a holder for the purposes described, a

a book of spiral form, the other arm of said pair being provided at its terminal, transversely ,metall-ic strip bent to provide a handle and a pair of intersecting arms, one of said arms outwardly of said intersection being provided with thereof, with a shoe,ancl provided between said I intersection and said shoe with a curved supporting-member.

3. In a ,holder forthe purposes described, a 7

metallic strip, bent adjacent to its ends to provide a handle and a-pair of arms intersecting and connected with each other inter-mediate their ends and said handle; one of said'arms being provided at its end with a hook of spiral.-

form, the other arm of said pair being provided at its end with a .shoe and having a part ap;

proximately of' U-shape to operate as support between said'shoe and said intersection.
