These premium-quality German bent chain-nose pliers are suitable for all types of bench tasks, including opening and closing jump rings, flat crimping, making angled bends and closing and tightening prongs. On chain-nose pliers, both jaws are semi-round with flat interior surfaces, tapering to a point from the pivot to the tip; the jaw tips of these pliers are angled perpendicular to the joint, enhancing reach and visibility. The smooth interior surface helps reduce the risk of marring delicate pieces. Manufactured from the finest Swedish tool steel, these pliers are preferred for their precision, comfort and uncompromising quality.
• These pliers have a box joint; one half of the joint surrounds the other half, and the pivot is contained within. This joint holds its alignment far longer than a lap joint but allows the tool to open only as far as the box size.
• 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 to deliver a fast, strong rebound for improved productivity.
• The plastic-dipped handles stay comfortable through hours of work.
