There are a number of 'specialist' tweezers available on the UK version of ebay. The French one will probably have them too. I searched for modellers tweezers. 'Reverse' tweezers can come in very handy - you squeeze to release so don't have to maintain pressure on them to keep whatever you're holding in place.

Here is one example of a set of tweezers for modellers: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Brand-New-Si ... SwIFBfx-sI

There are loads of different types to choose from. I tend to favour the self gripping ones like these:

Thanks guys. Postage is more than the tweezers. Can now look for identical ones on Ebay, France.
