Crucible tongs are steel tools used to lift a hot crucible from a furnace. The "Lift Out" type is used for lifting a crucible straight up from the opening of a top loading furnace.
These Latching Tongs have a latch bar holds the tongs closed to make lifting easier. A user adjustable stop is provided that limits the amount of clamping force applied to the crucible
Tongs are custom fit for one specific shape and size of crucible. This set will fit a #20 Bilge Crucible, either a clay graphite or silicon carbide composition.
Since these tongs are custom made for this specific type and size of crucible they are not returnable.
