For sure Arrow Springs and Frantz sell them, and a host of other suppliers, depending on how quick you want them and what part of the country you're in. Google 'hot glass lentil masher' and you'll get a slew of places.

Welcome to LE. As ESC said, google is your friend in that search. You're likely to turn up more presses & graphite shaping tools however.

There are several threads on LE about tong vs press, etc., that you might check out - here's one. You can use Search function to find more
http://www.lampworketc.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=107790

And videos on YouTube on how to use tongs
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncizqWhb_P8

Devardi has some tongs
https://www.devardiglass.com/Tongpresses.htm

Jim Moore also
https://www.glasscolor.com/3-JimMooreLampworkingTools

Numerous companies have graphite shapers - a internet search brings up more sources

http://www.cgbeads.com/cgbeadrollers...-cabochon.html
https://www.arrowsprings.com/html/shaping_tools.html

And there are also lentil presses from various sources - again internet search brings up many sources
