These specially designed pliers have a punch on one jaw and a die on the other, making quick work of making clean round hole with no rough edges in metal, leather and other materials; the elongated jaws give you added reach, allowing you to make holes up to 1" from the edge of the material. These pliers are ideal for copper or silver up to 24 gauge and create a 1.5mm hole—great for most riveting jobs. The tempered steel punch is replaceable, indefinitely extending the life of the tool. One replacement tip is included; additional replacements can be ordered separately. These pliers are made of thick carbon steel for strength and durability.
• These pliers have a lap joint; one half of the joint overlaps the other, and a pivot is set through both halves.
• A built-in jaw stop makes it easy to achieve perfectly repeatable pressure with no marring of the metal.
• The ergonomically shaped grips guarantee comfort over extended work time.
• Take care to avoid using these pliers beyond their maximum capacity.
