Holding Small Hands
By Jos. A. BEIMEL
Occasionally one finds that the ordinary hand brooching tool does not accommodate the holding of very small hands, such as used on Baguettes. A simple little tool can be quickly prepared to answer your special purpose. As suggested by Mr. Guy Whoolston of Pennsylvania Horological Association, it can be prepared in a few minutes.
Simply select one of your stout tweezers, file one or more slots across as shown in the outlined drawing. Upon opening the tweezer, the hand is placed so as to contact each of the four sharp edges. When pressed together the sharp edges grip the hand firmly and prevent the hand from turning while using your brooch to enlarge the hole.
