Description: You can tell by our large assortment of tweezers that we here at SparkFun are way into picking up tiny things. To make sure we’re always up to date on the latest in ‘tweezing’ technology, we’re always buying and testing new tweezers. Okay… tweezers aren’t exactly the most exciting thing in the world, but they are super handy.
These are nice, solid curved tweezers. They have a very fine tip which allows you to pick up very small parts with precision. This is a great tool to have if you’re working with surface mount components or anything with very small parts. The ESD-safe coating will also help prevent electro-static damage to sensitive electronic components. The best part? They’re bright red and have the SparkFun logo printed right on them!

I bought these and loved the pointy-ness of the tips.. until I dropped them once… ONCE… and the tips bent outward and I could never quite get them as finely tuned again. Wish they were just a tad heavier gauge metal, or thicker along the taper. The tips are VERY pointy and sharp, which is great for small parts.
I use these for general all-purpose handling of small things, but where I find them really useful is in working with SMD components.
If you don’t have a Pick and Place machine, these tweezers are your best friend. I’ve used these to hold components as small as 0402 SMD resistors in place while hand-soldering, as well as for placing components for reflow soldering.
I like the curved tip, especially when placing SMD components, as I can brace my hand against my work surface and still be able to place the component vertically.
Very handy (pun intended) when trying to pick up SMD parts.
