AS&S Helping Hands... and Eyes
American Science and Surplus sells some pretty unusual items (their nav menu has a category called, "Robot Parts"), and they tend to sell them at very reasonable prices. Their Helping Hand clamp (for lack of a better word) fits the bill: unusual and under $10. It's a little stand with two alligator clips, a magnifying glass, and a little light. Each piece is fully adjustable resulting in virtually limitless possibilities of how to use the thing.
If you're a detail guy; a hobbyist who works with minutia and who agonizes over every little detail of each little piece, this might be something to add to your workbench. If you're not like that, you should probably still get one because it just looks so damn cool and it only costs eight bucks.
