Crucible Tongs

Crucible tongs are a tool that may be used for lifting heavy and hot crucibles out of furnaces. They look like pincers and may be made out of steel or metal. They are normally used in metal casting activities.

Crucible
A crucible is a container that can withstand very high temperatures and is used for metal, glass, and pigment production as well as a number of modern laboratory processes. While crucibles [1] historically were usually made from clay, they can be made from any material that withstands temperatures high enough to melt or otherwise alter its contents.

Electrical Current
Electric currents cause many effects, notably heating, but also induce magnetic fields, which are widely used for motors, inductors and generators.

Square File

A file is a metalworking, woodworking and plastic working tool used to cut fine amounts of material from a workpiece. It most commonly refers to thehand tool style, which takes the form of a steel bar with a case hardened surface and a series of sharp, parallel teeth. Most files have a narrow, pointedtang at one end to which a [1] handle can be fitted. A similar tool is the rasp. This is an older form, with simpler teeth. As they have larger clearance between teeth, these are usually used on softer, non-metallic materials.

Crossing File

Metal files are common tools in the metal industry. A crossing file or cross file is a double half-round needle file that is curved and cut on both sides. It can be tapered, parallel or blunt.

Oil
An oil is any neutral, nonpolar chemical substance, that is a viscous liquid at ambient temperatures, and is both hydrophobic (immiscible with water, literally "water fearing") and lipophilic (miscible with other oils, literally "fat loving"). Oils have a high carbon and hydrogen content and are usually flammable andslippery.
