Product Descriptions:

Tongs:

Crucible tongs are steel tools used to lift a hot crucible from a furnace. The "Lift Out" type is used for lifting a crucible straight up from the opening of a top loading furnace.

The Latching Tongs have a latch bar holds the tongs closed to make lifting easier. A user adjustable stop is provided that limits the amount of clamping force applied to the crucible. 

 


Shanks:

After lifting from the furnace, shanks are used for holding the crucible to pour the molten metal into your prepared molds. These pouring shanks are equipped with a lever operated spring loaded clamp or a sliding bar that secures the crucible into the shank ring. Some shanks come with a bottom retaining plate (not shown) that the crucible sits on below the ring.

Hand Shanks are held by one person.

Single Ended Shanks are held by two people. One end of the shank has double grips, the other end is a single grip.   The pouring action is controlled by the person on the end with the two grips.

Adjustable Shanks will fit a range of crucible sizes.  The holding clamps are screw adjustable to fit the crucible in use.
