This five-piece set of Glitter-Line™ pliers and cutters adds flair and fun to all your craft projects without sacrificing precision or tool quality. The pliers and cutters in this set cover a wide variety of uses, making it a versatile and useful introduction to working with wire.
The set comes in a velvet roll-and-tie pouch and includes: fine-tipped chain-nose pliers; flat-nose pliers; round-nose pliers; bent chain-nose pliers; side cutters. For all pliers, the overall tool length is 4.5" (114.3mm) and jaw length is 0.80" (20mm); for the cutters overall tool length is 5" (127mm) and the jaw length is 0.50" (13mm). The tough, rust-resistant stainless steel gives a reasonable tool life and good value; jaws may require regular maintenance with use.
• All tools have lap joints and double-leaf springs. In a lap joint, one half of the joint overlaps the other, and a pivot is set through both halves.
• The double-leaf spring consists of flat, tempered metal tabs attached to the inside of each tool handle, positioned to meet and hold the handles apart (and the jaws open) until they are squeezed closed.
• The handles are coated with PVC grips for both security and comfort.
