Soft-Tip Hemostat, 5" Straight
The other day I was using my trusty soft-tip hemostats for a 'Pre-Dip' application on a coin sent to us for restoration. Sheri walked by, saw what I was doing, stopped for a instant, then asked: "You've been using those hemos' for years - do you have them for sale in your shop?" Huh?
Sometimes I can't see the forest for the trees, especially for tools, etc., that I take for granted...just because they've been around for so long that I no longer actually see them as such.
So, here's the deal on these hemostats and why they'll work for you:
Because of the soft plastic tips, you never have to worry about clamping your ancient coin into a hemostat with serrated edges that can, and will, mar the coin's surface.
We use this hemostat when dipping coins in JAX Solutions, as it keeps it hand-free and hand oil-free, as well. It is also the perfect tool for holding your coin during the application of Pre-Dip, prior to JAX soaks.
FYI - We've been using the same hemostat for 4-5 years!
