Need a Hot Plate? Use an Iron as a Quick (And Free) DIY Alternative

If you're the kind of person who frequently does science experiments at home, you probably have a hot plate. But if you're more of an occasional amateur scientist (or just don't want to buy one), it's much easier to hack your own.

Charlie over on Topologic Oceans came up with this super quick and easy DIY hot plate, and all you need is a clamp and a regular old iron.
