Designed to be effective and comfortable in your hand, these flat-nose pliers feature jaws that maintain parallel contact with your work, helping to ensure consistent pressure. The distinctive spring is made from a single large loop of rubber to guarantee smooth operation. On flat-nose pliers, both jaws are flat, with smooth interior surfaces; they are ideal for making wider, broader bends in wire, metal-forming, straightening and flattening out metal, making angled bends in metal and holding components. The smooth finish on the interior surface of the jaws reduces the risk of marring delicate pieces. The handles are thick-coated with soft rubber foam for comfort, even after extended use. These pliers have a lap joint; one half of the joint overlaps the other, and a pivot is set through both halves. The tough, rust-resistant stainless steel delivers a reasonable tool life and good value.
