This set of (6) tweezers is as useful as it looks daunting. The (6) stainless steel tweezers vary in size from 4-1/2" up to 7". Two of the tweezers have serrated tips one is inverse, one has a slide latch and the others are straight flat tip. The set comes in a clear front plastic carrying case. Good for model cars, planes or hard to reach splinters.
Hemostats are the clamplike devices dangling from veins and arteries in
melodramatic operating scenes. Our particular collection are Pakistani
surgical-grade instruments made of magnetic stainless steel. As such we
rate them pretty good, but not fantastic. Hemostats look like little
pliers. The jaws are relatively fine, with rounded tips. The inside
faces are lightly serrated to get a grip on tubing or body plumbing. And
the handles are much longer than the jaws. Now the heavenly part.
Great hobby clamps that can be worked into small areas. Fine heat sinks
for electronics. Good hook extractors for trout fisherpeople. Excellent
tubing clamps for flow-sensitive chemistry experiments. Sizes are
Prick tiny bits of gunk from nasty places with these U.S. made hardened stainless steel dental tools. But please don't use them for dental work. They are slight seconds, and some may have been re-worked which only matters to teeth. Trim excess glue from models, place a barrel on the deck of the ship-in-a-bottle, clean a rasp. If you need the strength and durability in a tiny pick, you need these tools. We have an assortment of the sort you've seen laid out on your dentist's tray. We'll pick (3) different ones for you.
These're pleasing tweezers, these are. They're clever cross-lock tweezers, 6" long with wood-grain grips and 1/2" long, serrated 90° jaws that grip tightly. The handy cross-locks will lay flat on their backs to hold stuff, like wires, while you solder.
No autoclave machine? Worry not. Like syringes and half of the medical equipment in the world, scalpels are now disposable. This one is 5-3'4" long and has a green plastic handle with a textured grip (with a 60mm rule on it) and a #11 (that’s pointy, for you non-surgeons) stainless steel blade. Perfect for all your hobbyist needs. Please replace the blade guard before disposal.
And then give us a little tweeze, and a couple more for luck. Our 4-piece stainless steel tweezer set includes: 4-5/8" long bent tweezers; 4-1/2” fine point; 4-5/8” cross-locks; and 4-1/4” blunt-tip stamp tweezers with 1/4” wide tips for you philatelists.
Our humongotweezer special is a twofer: (1) pair of straight steel tweezers at 12" long and another pair, the same, but with a 30-degree curve at the business end--both with smooth, un-grooved tips. Great for lab work or delicate grilling operations.
We love the name, so-called because they’re made for very small blood vessels. These are carbon-steel straight-locking hemostat forceps, 5” long with narrow serrated 7/16” tips. And yes, you’re permitted to use them for other stuff if you’re not a surgeon. (Or even if you are a surgeon, actually.)
