Our newest superheroes are these titanium tweezers, non-magnetic, rust-proof, stronger than mortal tweezers and with really skinny tips. Our each is a trio, (2) at 4-5/8” long marked “1” and “5”, and (1) at 4-7/8” marked “AA”. All three are perfect for for high-precision work, including under a microscope, but they’re not too proud to pull a splinter out of your finger.
AKA wax carvers. Each tool is about 6"
long, stainless steel, with a shaped head on each end. Set "B" has two
smaller arrow heads, two sort of like golf clubs and two more small
(1/8"+) "spoons". The smaller sizes mean slightly sharper edges and
points, but they are still basically dull. You certainly could use them
to model in wax, or in clay, or to sculpt plaster of Paris. Handy and
A fine concept and pretty successful execution. Weighted bases hold
fully adjustable clips and lenses for delicate hands–free work. The
Helping Hand w/solder has a 2” high base connected to (2) alligator
clips via (3) universal joints and a 4–1/2" sliding beam, and to a
2–1/2" dia roughly 3X magnifier via another universal joint on the
sliding beam. It also adds a holder for your soldering iron, plus a hole
and thumbscrew in the base to firmly position it. The larger Work Stand
has a 3–1/2” x 4–3/4” stand with a 2–3/4” square x 3/8” deep reservoir
to hold small parts, an L–shaped sliding beam with (2) alligator clips,
and another L-shaped beam with a 3–1/2” lens, about 4X magnification.
Joints adjust every which way. The set screws can all be hand–tightened,
but we suggest a small pliers to secure the hefty 4X lens. Think of the
clips as extra hands to hold wires, components, beads, what-have-you
while you perform some operation on them with your own two hands.
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.
Who needs glue guns when you can have both hands free while using this 40-watt hot-melt glue pot. The Skillet from Ad tech™ measures 2-1/2” dia x 1/2” deep and is ready to glue sticks, beads, or chips so you can dip and position to your heart’s content. 120 volts. Insulated and on a 54” cord. CSA listed.
You know how when you try to replace a watch band yourself and that little spring bar flies out and you can never find it in your retro shag carpeting? We’re here to help. First, get rid of that carpeting. Then get this set of multiple standard 1.5mm spring bars. You’ll get between 7 and 10 of each in a dozen sizes (100 pieces altogether) from 8mm to 19mm, plus a double-ended tool to help you swap them out in the first place.
It's stylish, it's handy, it has a slightly menacing look to it, and-truth be told-it's a lot of fun. It's a handheld butane torch, great for everyone: in the lab, under the hood, working with circuitry, heck, a chef can even use it to flambé the dessert. 6-1/4" tall, 3-5/8" x 2-1/4" dia base, 3-5/8" long at the top, with a textured grip, push-button start with safety, and air adjustment to control the size of the flame. Easy to fill with butane, which you'll need to do 'cause no fuel is included.
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.
Diamond files never wear out, hardly, unless you file diamonds with them. This 10-piece set of diamond files has an assortment of wedges, flats, points and triangle files, all 6” long overall and up 5/16” wide. If you can’t find the one you need here, you probably shouldn’t file the thing in the first place.
