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.

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!!!

The boss is right

As a beginner learning to get the boss right is a problem. With the rapid tongs it’s right, (flat, straight, large, centered) so you can get a good rivet. Drawing out the rains and shaping the jaws are good learning exercise. When I get better I’ll try the bosses again, until then I’ll buy rapid or quick tongs

Excellent tools, excellent price, good service. Good business ethics.

Solid made tool stock with excellent explanation both printed and on YouTube, as to how to finish them out. The sellers appear interested and dedicated to what they are doing with the intent of giving good service and a good product. I will be keeping my eyes out for additional tools. Mainly because of the good price. most of us would rather make our own rather than pay the prices but this supplier makes it very reasonable to go ahead and buy the basic stock and this is at a good price that I can afford and at the same time the remaining work to be done gives me good practice on blacksmithing skills. Glad to have this vendor available! W.Hodges
