I had nowhere to set my helping hands down in an amp chassis I was repairing, and then it struck me - I had a machinist dial indicator kit in the shop, and after a few moments I had this!

Reached over and into the chassis just fine, and the base can magnetically clamp to a surface with great strength.
If you don't have one around... they're pretty cheap online.
