These premium-quality German pliers from Rio Grande feature one flat and one extra-fine round jaw, ideal for making a wide variety of bends in wire or flat stock as well as all types of bench tasks. The extra-fine tip allows access to tight spaces, and the longer jaw length provides an extended grip on your workpiece. Bend the wire against the flat jaw to create wider, broader bends or to make angled bends; form the wire around the round jaw to make loops, jump rings, coils and sharper curves. Forming pliers have a variety of jaw configurations designed to maximize the ability to bend, shape or form wire, strip and sheet. Use these pliers for bending ring shanks, shaping ear wires or looping wire. Manufactured from the finest Swedish tool steel, this tool is preferred for its precision, comfort and uncompromising quality.
• These pliers have a box joint; one half of the joint surrounds the other 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 handle, positioned to meet and hold the handles apart (and the jaws open) until they are squeezed closed.
• The plastic-dipped handles ensure a comfortable grip.
• Round tip width: 1.36mm
• Flat tip width: 5.35mm
