This small vice is useful to researchers performing dissections under a microscope. When commercially available micro tools are too large, especially for genitalia dissection, the user can make suitable tools using insect pins. The vice holds insect pins securely while tools are being shaped. It will hold pin diameters from 0 – 0.028″ (0.72mm) which includes all sizes of insect pins, 000 – 7, and minutens. Made of hardened steel, 102mm overall length.
