• Please HELP…

    Posted by Mike Brown on October 16, 2002 at 6:46 pm

    can anyone help to identify where I might find the type of tweezer shown below?

    We joked recently, in another post, about how we all get really attached to a certain type and low-and-behold…I had two pairs – have now lost one and this remaining pair are losing their ‘spring’…mind you, we’ve had them for about five years!

    I’d dearly love to get some replacments – they’re just right for us…

    Can you help?

    thanks

    more soon

    Hi Mike.

    They look a lot like Spandex ones, which are supplied with their cutters as part of a tool kit, pretty sure they are availble on their own.

    I think I have a pair at work, so I will take a look. We have an account with Spandx so we can get you some no problem .

    If you are really stuck I will post you the pair we have, to give them a try, if you like.

    Either way I will let you know waht we have.

    Tim

    Do these tweezers have a sort of yellowy green bit at the top just like in the photies Mike? 😀
