Cut with a laser, the jaws on these Italtec flat-nose pliers feature precision edges and contours that deliver smooth, repeatable bends and curves in metal and wire. On flat-nose pliers, both jaws are flat; they are ideal for making wider, broader bends in wire, metal-forming, straightening and flattening out metal, making angled bends, closing prongs and holding components. The interior surface of the jaws is smooth, reducing the risk of marring the workpiece. The jaws are made of C70 steel that is hardened to 62HRC.
• These pliers have a lap joint, in which one half of the joint overlaps the other, and a screw is set through both halves. The screw allows the joint to be adjusted as needed.
• The double-leaf spring consists of flat, tempered metal tabs attached to the inside of each of the tool handles, positioned to meet and hold the handles apart (and the jaws open) until they are squeezed closed, delivering a fast, strong rebound for improved productivity.
• All Italtec tool handles are made from Polyemi™ and are latex-free.
