We’re Getting A Little Punchy
Jewelers and crafters sometimes need to punch a tiny hole, and we’re here to help. This 6” long pliers-style punch with rubber-coated handles is for making 2mm holes in soft metals such as gold, silver or copper. Comes with (2) extra punch tips and a 12mm screw to adjust the maximum depth, in case you want to indent instead of punching all the way through.

Got Big Plastic Slivers?
Time to get these large plastic tweezers, at 7-1/4” long with 3/4” serrated jaws and round tips. Sometimes metal tweezers just won’t cut it, like when they might scratch what you’re tweezing, or when you’re working in electrical situations. Our each is dozen, (3) each in red, yellow, green and blue. Dandy for arts & crafts and indispensable for mosaic work.

Helping Hands... and Eyes
We just wish there was something, anything, to do around here that required this thing, on account of it's so cool. Our newest Helping Hand has a pair of alligator clips on swiveling arms, likewise a 2-1/4" dia x 1.5X magnifier plus an LED flashlight on a gooseneck. Everything swivels every way there is and tightens with little thumbscrews-and some of the configurations look like it's maybe alive, and from Venus. Jewelry makers? Diamond cutters? Forensic scientists? Maybe we'll start making small electronics, or tying flies.
$9.95 EACH
Need A Hand With That?
You've come to the right place. Our illuminated, magnifying helping hand even has a stand to hold a soldering iron. On a 2-1/4" x 2-1/2" cast iron base with a small-parts well, it has a sliding arm on a ball-joint with (2) alligator clips that move on (2) axes. On a second rotating ball-joint arm is a generous 3-1/4" dia 2X magnifier with a 6X inset lens and a pair of white LEDS. More like (3) helping hands than (1).
