Does anybody know if tweezers with soft tips are available anywhere please. I'm fed up with having stuff flick off and have just lost the rear column for my MiG-31 and the damn things at least half an inch long..

Thanks Mark I'll search them out but any decent chemist would have them I suppose. I have tried tweezers that lock but have the same problem, shaky hands now.

yep Del, most chemists do them

the only other option would be get some foam and glue it to the inside of the tweezer faces

Tweezers I use are too narrow so next time I'm out I'll check out the chemists.
