Fish Fin Tweezers
  $16.95

Fish Fin Tweezers with Detail TN

We have been making this tool in a pliers version for many years. Now we are making them as tweezers. Just as wonderful a tool, but at half the price of the old pliers version. These clever little mashers press a blob of molten glass into a delicate, bead scale fish fin, two fin bones wide at a time. Just heat the glass and mash it side by side repeatedly to make a wider and wider fin.

With their robust ergonomic handle, the Ruffler Tool mashes a ruffle pattern into glass that can also be easily turned into a bird wing or fish fin. There are two versions. One version has a straight end to nest up tight to a cylinder shaped bead or straight edged form. The other has a curve to it to more closely follow a curved form. Either will work on any type of base form nicely. Top view of tool to show pattern and side view to show the ergonomic handle.

As you probably already know, many of our tools are based on tweezers. Some we re-profile their tips for special applications, others we make various sizes and shapes of stainless steel squares and patterns and weld or braze them to tweezers. Always looking to develop new tools and to improve on existing ones, we have come up with an improved, very robust, ergonomic tweezers design. As you can see in the pictures, they are easier to hold and easier to use. Angled Tweezers Mashers are for profiling the bottom of heart shaped beads and more.
To make these Tweezers Mashers as robust as possible, we cut down much longer tweezers to remove the slender and weaker portion, producing a Tweezers Mashers superb to all others!
