Straight from Dr. Frankenstein’s lab, these hemostats will help you hold on to smaller parts and keep fluids from spilling out of disconnected hoses. I’m sure there are other uses for ’em, too — think legal, folks! Store ’em with the rubber gloves, dental mirrors and picks, and all the other medical tools that have made it into the shop.
This extra-long set from GearWrench includes a straight and a 45-degree model, each measuring almost ten inches long. The hemostats offer multiple stopping points so you can vary the pressure and the size of the opening. They’re made of a polished, corrosion-resistant alloy, and as with all Double X tools, the hinges allow the jaws to open wider than the handles.
The GearWrench Double X Hemostat set sells for about $45.
