Even a 1/16" spring-loaded aluminum heatsink clamp is ungainly when you're working at this scale.

I had Tek issue artery forceps circa 1969 that could be clamped on the lead of some tender little device while soldering to provide an alternate heat flow path.

Dennis, I think you're thinking of the 067-0681-01 TD Pulser. That's the John Addis design with 43-ohm resistor in the BNC.

I wonder if soldering the TD could be made safer by having an assistant spray the body with freezer while you solder the lead.
That's assuming steep gradient is less of a danger than overheating.
