These strong, cross-locking tweezers are ideal for laser welding and other heat-related applications; the short, fine-point tip makes it maneuverable in close spaces and precise when working with fine wire or findings. The cross-lock mechanism opens when pressed and closes snugly when released to grip objects securely with natural tension. The shorter jaw length concentrates the spring power of standard cross-lock tweezers for an extremely powerful grip. Heat-resistant fiber grips protect fingers from heat. For laser-welding applications, cover the tips to prevent marring soft metals.
