Michael writes: “I was reminded today — twice actually — what a great tool these are. I bought my first pair a few years ago from a brick-and-mortar camping store that was going out of business. I recently found them again at Lee Valley and bought several more. They make great gifts for woodworkers. One of the neat features is the small clip that that comes with them., which allows you to keep the tweezers on a key chain. I’ve easily removed slivers I couldn’t even see with these. It’s a simple product that does what it’s supposed to do and still made in the USA.”
From Lee Valley:
These stainless-steel tweezers are unequalled for removing slivers. They are accurately ground to a fine point with a light cross-score on the inside to grip the sliver. The holes in either side make for a secure finger grip since the fleshy part of your finger naturally beds in the hole as you squeeze.
These look handy indeed, and at just $7 we might need to go ahead and pick a set up — maybe two: one for the first-aid kit and one for the shop.
