Good tools make modeling easier, and every modeler needs several types of tweezers and the toolbox. Plusmodel is now offering tweezers designed for the modeler.

Flat Tip tweezers are very useful tools when handling plastic bits and decals. The key factor with Flat Tip tweezers is that the jaws are parallel and "meet" when closed without any overhang or gap between the jaws. We've all seen "inexpensive" flat tip tweezers that, from the get-go, display a gap. The Plusmodel Flat Tip Tweezers, # 026, come out of the package with a perfect "bite". These tweezers close and grip well.

Crossed Tweezers are closed "at rest" and open when squeezed. Crossed Tweezers are excellent tools used to grip and hold small parts. The Plusmodel Crossed Type Tweezers, #021 has pointed tips (some Crossed Tweezers are engineered with flat tips) and can pick up very small items, holding them firmly but gently.

Both of these tweezers samples are of high quality and will prove to be very useful. The price may be a bit more than you are used to, but you get what you pay for. These tweezers are highly recommended for their quality, the "fit" of the jaws, and a robust construction which should provide for a long and useful life of the tool. Thanks to Plusmodel for providing these tools to IPMS for review.
