I have a lot of trouble with keeping a steady hand and this has become rather problematic in recent weeks.
Does anyone have any tips or things that could help curtail this issue?

Recently, it's been trying to making electrical contacts. More specifically, I have small layer of nickel that was deposited on a semiconductor material. I need to attach wires to the nickel, so I've been using conductive epoxy. When you place the wires with the epoxy on the chip, you have to make sure it is only on top of the nickel. So I need a steady hand so I can place wires only on the nickel. If I mess up and get it on the semiconductor material, I have to take it off and try again.

You need to work on the small muscle development of your arm to improve fine motor control.
This site is for people overcoming neurological damage due to stroke or head injury, but the exercises should still be helpful in your situation.

Is it neurological?

Might be a nervous reaction to drinking too much sugar or caffeine?
I sometimes get really jittery if I drink too much soda or coffee.

Yeah.....It's MY fault.
Babble was dirty was before I meandered in here 4 years ago

What, like nuvo?.........That shit turned my cups pink......I was scared to drink it after that, luckily I used to hang around a bunch of lushes.

No caffeine for starters. If it persists, see a doctor.
Is there a reason you need to put the epoxy on the wires instead of on the nickel and then stick the wires on that? Could you rig up a holder for the wires that you can position by turning knobs (I'm thinking of something along the lines of a micro-manipulators but on a bigger and less sophisticated scale )? That might be the quickest solution, unless this is something you'll be doing on a regular basis (on second thought, if it is something you'll be doing a lot, you might rig up something like that anyway. Seems like it would make the operation less time consuming and less prone to starting over).

The epoxy I had to use was a 2-part conductive epoxy. You put equal amounts next to each other and mix them together. Then I'd take the wire, dip it in the epoxy to get a good amount on the wire, then try to attach it to the nickel. I've thought about what would happen if I just attached the conductive epoxy straight on the surface instead, but I don't know if it will make the kind of electrical contact I need.
I've also been thinking about other ways I can attach my samples to our equipment so I don't have to bother with this freaking epoxy crap.
I've book marked the site 4HBabe linked, so I'm gonna check that out later to try some of the stuff.

That reminded me. A friend of mine gave me a bottle of multivitamins since he was concerned with my less than healthy eating habits (hot dogs and ramen). I'd forgotten I had them.

most peoples hand shake to some extent. blood pressure could be an issue (but probably isn't).
stress, drinking, ####ty diet, not drinking enough water and too much caffiene are the main culprits. also blood sugar problems(caused by a ####ty diet).
