I have also purchased some of the Tamiya tweezers. I said
to myself "they don't cost that much and guys are saying they
are better - so just buy some and try them". And I did. And
they are (better).
What I wasn't expecting is that they would be so MUCH
better! Thanks for the pointer to them.
The rest of the story - I have recently been putting resistors
on HO wheelsets (10k - #0803s if you care) and one of the
steps in the process involves picking up one of those small
SMD resistors ... and placing it on the axle in a small dab of
These tweezers are FAR superior ... I can pick up, and not
loose, the resistors pretty much first time every time. And
then place the resistor on the axle and let go ... without
ever having a "flying resistor" and also with the resistor
just sitting directly down on the axle and not fall off or be
crooked or ___
