Making Glaze Tongs

Recommended Posts

Yeh, I know, but I'm just a dope about making stuff.... Got "hot dog" tongs at the dollar store that I'll try to modify. Need the teeth parallel, not like a + to grip object. Been using the same store bought ones for 30 years, but they don't quite work with a new odd shaped pot that is a commercial success.

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.

Using the stapler removers is a cool idea! Thanks Min I bet I have a couple old ones hanging out in a box somewhere....

 

Oh where oh where did they go.

 

The scavenger hunt is ON!
