blacksmith tongs
« on: December 03, 2019, 05:40:38 AM »
I made up 12 pair of tongs last summer and had planned to offer them to ALR members once the weather cooled off. It didn't cool off here in CT it just got cold. I had wanted to keep the price as low as possible but learned that the shipping approached what I wanted to price them at, so I need to charge $25 a pair. The tongs are about 15 inches long which makes them pretty nimble. The handles (reins) are power drawn from a single piece so there are no welds. I made them to fit 3/8" round bar but they will fit nicely to 1/4" stuff and3/8 sq. Even if you are not forging iron, a nice pair of tongs is handy for picking up hot things or whatever. I will not deal with credit cards but will accept personal checks.

I am pretty well stocked on tongs, but if you have ever made a pair you will realize this price is more than fair. They look very nicely made.
