Soldering Tweezers

The soldering tweezers shown here are all heavy duty. Many tweezers from other Shor web pages can also be used for soldering (for example, the black oxidized AA tweezers are excellent for this purpose). In addition, for platinum soldering, you will want to use titanium tweezers.

Tweezer Metals

The chart below shows general property relationships among the various metals used in the manufacturing of tweezers. In addition, note that the points of the harder metals will wear longer and are less subject to bending. The softer metals will not scratch delicate parts and usually have additional desirable properties such as being non-magnetic, etc. Titanium has a very high melting temperature and is commonly used when soldering platinum.
