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.
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.
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
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.
Gadgeteers, get out your charge card. This is an instrument you absolutely have to own. It reaches down below sofa cushions, inside piggy banks, into fish tanks, and past a gallbladder. Not simultaneously, of course. The slim stainless steel alligator forceps is 11" long OA, with a 2-1/2" angled handle and an 8-1/2" reach. It has small 5/8" long serrated jaws, delicate but tight, at the very tip! Better buy an extra. We guarantee people are going to "borrow" these if they see them.
A variety of shapes and ugliness, though no unbroken tips. Some single
ended, some double. Super for all manner of hobbyism, except for
do-it-yourself-dentistry. Excellent price in today's weakened dollar
market. All stainless steel.
Just because hospitals toss 'em after one
use doesn't mean you should. These are sterile scalpels, and they're
ultra-handy in the shop or craft room. Measure 6" long with snap-off
blade shields. You pick #10 with a rounded profile or #11 with pointed
Picky, picky, picky. If that's you, you'd better get this 4-piece chrome vanadium pick set, including straight, 35-degree, 90-degree and O-ring picks, all of which screw into a 3-3/8" long threaded aluminum hex-sided handle, with a 3/4 lb-pull magnet in the bottom. Picks themselves are 3" to 3-3/8" long, so the assembled tool is approx 6-1/2".
