I just got two of Glen's tongs from GS Blacksmith Tongs one holds 3/8 squareand one pair is a 5/8 square bolt tong for RR spikes

also, go to Link removed at the request of anvilfire and look at blueprint 132

that was my first tong and I still use it today.

I just found out that if you follow "Sean Conner's ET tongs" also makes a firm gripping set of blade tongs.
