Rapid Box Jaw Tongs were inspired by our Quick Tongs series. These tongs are made out of thinner material, making the tongs lighter and easier to handle when working with smaller stock sizes. 

Difficulty Level: Beginner
Tools Required: Vise, Twisting Wrench or Tongs, Hammer, Drill or Hot Punch
Helpful Tools: Vise Spacers, Rivet Bucking/Heading Tool

Box Jaw Tongs are great for working with flat bar stock and the edges that form the "box" give you a sturdy hold on your material. The jaw has a generous amount of material that allows it to be drawn out to fit a variety of sizes. 

Rapid Box Jaw Tongs are made from 5/16" thick mild steel. The jaws of the box jaw blank are 2-3/4" long x 1-5/8" wide and the reins are 11-1/2" long.

Price includes a pair of Rapid Box Jaw Tongs blanks, one 1/4" x 1" rivet, and an Instruction page.

Love these tongs!

So far I’ve purchased all the tongs I use from this line. Not only a great product, but a wonderful way to practice and reinforce smithing technique. Strongly recommend!!!

Very easy way to build tongs.

I love how easy it is to make a good stout pair of tongs. I will order many to fill my rack in the Smithy. Thank you.

Outstanding

All of Ken's tong kits have to be the best way to get the tongs you need for whatever you are doing, until such time as you get better at making what you need from scratch. Even with the rise is shipping fees the price is exceptional. Thanks Ken & Crew.

Box Jaw Tongs Assembly

Buying these tongs pre-cut and ready for assembly was the best idea I've had in a long time. It takes just a little pounding and shaping, some minor drawing out of the reins and drilling two holes for the rivet and its a done deal. End product... very nice!!
