First Pair of Tongs...Almost Done!

Recommended Posts

I just made my first pair as well. I found that the flat spot for joining them needed to be much larger than I had expected (or you have to offset the S steeper) to make them open and close right. I was really pleased how easy and well the rivet worked.

If I were you, I would take those two and put holes in em but before joining them I would do my best to mimic their movement. I would bet that you are going to have binding issues the way your flat spot tapers. It's alot easier to adjust them now than to do it later with a file or grinder when they're joined.

Good job and let us know how they work!
