The unique compound box-joint design of these pliers keeps the jaws parallel as they open and close, regardless of the range of motion the pliers themselves are put through. Urethane-lined jaws help you shape sheet and wire stock without marring their surfaces. The smooth, flat jaws make these pliers ideal for shaping sheet and wire stock and for creating crisp bends.
• The jaws hold the object securely, even under very firm pressure; this is beneficial for stone-setting and all forming work.
• Choose parallel-action pliers when you need to hold a workpiece or other object securely while at the same time applying firm pressure to it, or when manipulating wire (you can feed the wire down through the throat and hold it firmly over the entire length of the jaw).
• These pliers feature a return spring that keeps the jaws open between bends.
• Heavy jaws make these pliers unsuitable for delicate work.
