Knipex tweezers
« on: February 26, 2022, 01:47 PM »
Don't know who else got the KC tool notice for the Knipex tweezer sale but you might want to take a look.

My question though is has anybody ordered any of these types of tweezers before? I would like to order a good pair for obvious splinter removal reasons. Might be cleaner and safer than using a drywall knife to dig out splinters. My usual method.
Unfortunately I look at the offerings and my head starts spinning. Who would have thought there would be so many variations.
Any advice on which one works or doesn't so well is appreciated.

Unless I was ordering something else shipping would kill the deal for me.

I could probably print something like this for $0.10 of filament and a half hours time.

Edit: Actually looks like I was close. 31 minutes to print and $0.17 worth of filament

It's a table saw, do you know where your fingers are?

Yeah, I started looking at the  Knipex tweezer line up and had the same immediate problem. Which ones? Too many to figure out and sort through just to pick a couple for having on hand when needed. 

A few years ago I had tried a pair for a particular use. They were too stiff for what I needed. Not a clue which model it was now. They were probably perfect for whatever intended use but not for mine. Trouble is that going any further would just be trial and error to find a good fit.

I guess just buy them all would work ? !  [eek]
