Boys and Girls,

I just finished a bit of drivel about laser engraving pens which left me with a penchant for sharing some of the different tools I have access to, that others may not be aware of.

Now not everyone is going to undertake the construction of a wooden ship and try to get intimate with the close proximity of a hard to reach mast’s base and all those “ropes”,

and consequently never experience the aid it was to me on that rigging, however, you may find some other uses for these tweezers.

While I can lead you to little pieces I can’t make you pick it up unless I loan you these scissors.
This is where I got them.

Personally I can’t recommend a bleeding thing for you to use it on at the moment, but, I’m sure the time will arrive in the future when you come scurrying for this blog and cursing that you didn’t listen to this duck when he had your attention.

Outside the rigging on my ship, I once used the alligator tweezers on my sewing machine... sewing machine you pansy, one may say, however, you might change your mind when I tell you that my sewing machine has a scanner so you can embroider your designed logo or cussing text in the middle of your favorite tie… but we’re here to talk about the tweezers.

Unfortunately I’ve run out of things to say so Keep Safe and bye.

Those would be perfect for plucking those pesky/deep nose hairs and other objects that end up in deep, dark crannies 8^)

Replace your buttons with a zipper… then you’ll find it… maybe even without the tweezers.

Popular with Europeans with big noses… does that pass racism?

Some people live sheltered lives rc. They haven’t heard of abranet, foam 150mm disc sanding blocks, and can you iimagine.. sewing machine in a workshop.
Every workshop should have one… Great for thin stock, but needless to say, a bugger on needles… I now need more!

No sewing machines in this house. Kinda a bummer, I tell the wife “Honey, can you darn my socks, they have holes in the toes”. She just picks one up, gives it a once-over and says “darn!”. That’s the last I ever hear about it…...

That’s why I wear nylons in my high heels, no holes and no excuse for SWMBO to slack off.

Nice story Alex. my favorite tweezers are surgical ones used to remove surgical staples. Doctors don’t like parting with them even though they are a single use item, because they have to be properly disposed and could be contaminated by your own body!!!!!
