These slim chain-nose pliers are suitable for a variety of bench and wire-wrapping tasks; its smaller size and slender profile make it ideal for fine work and delicate tasks. On chain-nose pliers, both jaws are semi-round with flat interior surfaces, tapering to a point from the pivot to the tip. The smooth finish on the interior surface of the jaws helps reduce the risk of marring delicate pieces. Use to open and close jump rings, for flat crimping and to make angled bends.
• These pliers have a box joint, in which 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.
• Black plastic-dipped handles help ensure hours of comfortable fine work.
