These forceps, also called hemostats, are incredibly versatile for work holding and positioning. I often use them to hold parts and wires for soldering, positioning jumpers and wires inside my computer case, and for many other such applications.
I ordered this pair of curved and straight tip forceps from Amazon for less than $3, and they arrived today. These made-in-Pakistan forceps have a so-so fit and finish, but for $3 that’s okay. It’s near impossible to find made-in-USA hobby-priced hemostats anymore, and many advertised as such are often based on outdated product listings.
In any case, the quality is okay, but becomes pretty darn decent when I consider the price. The hemostats are perfectly usable and feel pretty durable, but I would be hesitant to trust them with critical work.
