Just wanted some opinions I tinker around with metal working and have an ideal for some tongs. The ideal is I am going to try to make some tongs but instead of haveing it to where you push them to close I am going to make them to where they are always closed and when you push in on them they open up. I will not be able to nickle plate them but maybe polish them to a shine. So some of you that have been smokeing awhile and newbies does this sound like a good ideal? Any suggestion on othe parts of them are welcome.
