Making Glaze TongsTools
Posted 27 August 2014 - 12:33 PM
I have used commercial tongs for 22 years. The same set, in fact. The thing I like about them is that they are slightly flexible, so I don't put holes in my pots. I find that tongs that are made of modified pliers put too much pressure.

Don't know the shape of the pot you need tongs for but for shallow things like lids and tiles that you dip more on a horizontal plane plus little itsy bitsy stuff I use filed down staple removers. They are cheap and they work, I just filed down the prongs so they fit on the rims / edges.
