don't be an idiot with the tweezers (paraphrased)

while laying in bed last night flipping through the pages of "form emphasis for metalsmiths" by Heikki Seppa(required read/resource for my class at penland), i came across this most hilarious and true statement. the wording is so matter of fact (don't be an idiot with the tweezers!)... i can't get over it.

"Among the many securing devices, the tweezer (self-closing) on a stand is much abused. Its proper use is so limited as to hardly justify owning one; its improper use is so common that it is surprising anything is ever accomplished with it."

{thanks for reading}
