Crucible tongs are steel tools used to lift a hot crucible from a furnace. "Front Loading" tongs are used to remove crucibles from a furnace horizontally (opens like a home oven).
Non-Latching Tongs do not have a latching bar. A user adjustable stop is provided that limits the amount of clamping force applied to the crucible.
These tongs are custom made to fit a #3B Bilge Shape clay graphite crucible. Since these tongs are custom made for these specific type and size of crucible they are not returnable. Please allow 3 weeks for delivery.
