These stainless steel cross-lock tweezers are ideal for soldering or gripping a part securely. The straight tips help access your work effectively, and heat-resistant fiber grips protect your hands from heat. The polished stainless steel tips firmly hold the piece without contaminating the metal; the cross-lock mechanism opens when pressed and closes snugly when released to grip objects through its own tension, reducing hand fatigue. For laser-welding applications, cover the tips to prevent marring soft metals. Tough, rust-resistant stainless steel gives a reasonable tool life and good value.
