These slimline round-nose pliers are a great general-use tool, suitable for all bench tasks; their slim design and profile make them perfect for delicate wire-working tasks and fine work. On round-nose pliers, both jaws are round, tapering from the pivot to the tip; ideal for making loops, jump rings, clasps, coils and curved bends. The tough, rust-resistant stainless steel delivers reasonable life and good value.
• 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.
• A double-leaf spring consists of flat, tempered metal tabs attached to the inside of each tool handle, positioned to meet and hold the handles apart (and the jaws open) until they are squeezed closed. The spring holds the pliers open and ready to use; make your bend, then simply release pressure to open the jaws.
• The plastic-dipped, latex-free handles stay comfortable, even over hours of work time.
