The open jaw makes these tongs ideal for grabbing metal with a bulky end that would get in the way with other styles of tongs. They can be made to fit round, square, and rectangular material. 

Difficulty Level: Beginner/Intermediate
Tools Required: 
Vise, Hot Chisel, Hammer, Drill or Hot Punch
Helpful Tools: 
Rivet Bucking/Heading Tool

Rapid Bolt Tongs are made from 5/16" thick mild steel. The jaws are 3" long x 1-3/4" wide and the reins are 12" long.

Price includes two Rapid Bolt Tong blanks (to make one pair), one 1/4" x 1" rivet, and an Instruction page. (The tongs shown in the instructions are the thicker Quick Bolt Tongs, but the method of assembly remains unchanged.)

Quality tong blanks

I was glad that so many you-tubers suggested and hyped Ken's. I expected quality and I got it. Also, love the fact that there are videos available just to check that I am doing things correctly. Would recommend these products.

Too easy

I don’t want to make tools all the time so this just makes it easy. I do like the lighter tongs as well. Most of the time I’m doing small things anyway.

Rapid and spike tongs

The rapid tongs are fantastic and save a lot of wear and tear one the grip. The spike tongs were quite helpful but unfortunately they broke the same day I put them together, the 2 pronged tong snapped at the 90.

Great!

I haven’t had a chance to use cause my forge is under repair but they are pretty heavy duty and I’ve seen the video on how to put them together and it seems super easy. Would buy again!
