These slim bent chain-nose pliers have a smaller size and slender profile that make them ideal for the most delicate tasks; the lightweight tool is intended for use with finer gauges of wire. 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 bent perpendicular to the joint, enhancing reach and visibility. The smooth finish on the interior surface of the jaws helps reduce the risk of marring delicate pieces. Use this pliers for opening and closing jump rings, flat crimping, making angled bends, and delicate wirework and wire wrapping.
• These pliers have a box spring; 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, delivering a fast, strong rebound for improved productivity.
• The handles are dipped in a blue plastic coating to help ensure hours of comfortable fine work.
