    Default Glass BBQ Lampworking Finishing Tongs

    Hey TMP

    Just started making these guys for some friends recently and received some good responses on them. So now I am making these for a bigger crowd!

    These are 16" stainless steel bbq tongs, with oak handles. The ends are wrapped in a soft, high heat wrap. The wrap can withstand temperatures up to 2500 and is held in place with 2 stainless steel ties on both sides.

    For my TMP family I am giving you $10 off. Just use the coupon code TMP10 when you check out.

    Hit me up if you have any questions.

    Nice tongs. I would make a couple of smaller sizes also. I used to make them with the smaller tongs and pliers. I just cut a finger off an old glove and wired it on with rebar wire. I actually wish I had a smaller set for gripping finished gong slides to load the kiln. I used to use the pliers for spoons. But I use tweezers now.
    Just an idea nothing serious.

    I was actually just thinking about smaller version in pliers today. My idea was hemostats with wrapped ends.

    Maybe, but I already have a foot in that door if I go that route. I work full time at MGA

    Those are just like the ones a lot of us have made . First time I saw that type was at a Jason lee or marcel demo .


    They used the thicker glove material .


    What kind of material and thickness are on these .

    Yeah they aren't anything new, I just enjoy making them. Gotten good responses on the tongs and tape I use too.

    From my webstore description:
    "The wrap is a high temperature silicate fiber made to handle continuous operating temperatures of 1500 Fahrenheit and intermittent temperatures of 2000F."
    It's header tape. I actually line the bottom of my kiln with the stuff. No smoking and doesn't break down.

    Thickness is about 3/8"-1/2". I wrap twice and have two inserts down the middle.
