These nylon-jaw forming pliers provide deeper bends in metal than are possible with traditional bending pliers. Nylon jaws protect even soft metal against marring and the U-shaped channel in the lower jaw (11mm x 4.5mm), supports the wire as it's being shaped. Forming pliers have a variety of jaw configurations designed to maximize the ability to bend, shape or form wire, strip and sheet. They are ideal for creating ring shanks, opposing curves (waves or corrugation), angles and patterns. Jaws lined with nylon jaws are ideal for shaping soft sheet, wire or components without marring.
• These pliers have a lap joint; one half of the joint overlaps the other, and a pivot is set through both halves.
• The handles are dipped in plastic to ensure a firm and comfortable grip.
