A good pair of precision tweezers are essential to the successful soldering of small components, especially SMD/SMT work.
These curved fine-tip tweezers are great for working in awkward spots with tricky angles. They're anti-static, anti-magnetic and made of hard stainless steel. The tips have a fine (sharp!) point ideal for manual component picking and placing.
This ESD-15 model is 120mm long with a 12mm gap at the tips while open. The tip section is ~15mm.
