How to tell if tongs can be resized


Recommended Posts

I’m shopping for some tongs. I’ve seen dozens of websites offering all sorts of tongs for blacksmiths and a few of them mention that their tongs can or can not be adjusted for size. 

My question is, what should you look for to know you’re getting a solid pair of tongs that you can continue to use and resize for a good long life?

Is if the size of stock they came from?
Is it the metal they’re made of?
Is it the size of the boss or the rivet?
