This cup is great for quenching your metal after it has been fired. The negative locking tweezers come in handy when you need to solder or fuse a ring with a stone in it. Simply hold the ring with the tweezers and submerge the stone in water while fusing or soldering the link or ring closed.
This cup is uber cool! Of course the quench part is why I bought it, but it came with directions on how to use it to solder a ring with the stone still in it by dunking the stone in water to protect it. I LOVE ALL THE STUFF I BUY FROM BEADUCATION. I've learned most of my jewelry making knowledge from the big B!
I had always been of the mind that I just needed to use an old bowl or can for quenching. Well, I've changed my mind on that after seeing this cool cup. WOWZERS! FINALLY something I can actually fire near without having to worry about shattering or melting it. I like to solder my jump rings closed and it's hard to do with finished pieces that have stones. But with the tweezers holding the focal and stones under water? SCORE! Great addition to my workbench.
This is such a great product. Love the tweezers and that they have a resting place.
