Brass tweezers bending

Recommended Posts

Hello sirs,

I notice that my brass tweezers tips are bending to the outside... probably I use them for things were they not made for. :D

 

So what do I do, I bend them back in place, bud one day it will go wrong and they brake of. So do you sharpen them again then?

 

Hope you understand what I mean. :blink:

 

Thanks in advance.

They do bend. I keep my brass tweezers  pretty round and short. Not the sharp as i do with other tweezers.  I use them for bending up parts to

 :). I use a diamond plate i bought on cousinsuk for dressing them. Also use some  wet and dry paper.

Gentle press on tweezers just to hold a piece, excessive force not only ruins the tweezers but you get lots of pieces ping off.

You ahould streigthen the bent and then dress the tweezers, lay a fine grade sand paper on top of flat glass, stroke are to be  away from the tip of prongs.

A good and properly dressed pair tweezers lets you hold an endstone on the premeter without the ping off. That is both prong keep staying aligned as you hold.
