These hole-punching pliers are made of forged high-carbon, high-chrome alloy steel for exceptional strength and durability; these sturdy pliers can punch .18" (4.5mm) holes in non-ferrous metal up to 18 gauge. Hole-punching pliers are designed with a punch on one jaw and a die on the other, making quick work of punching holes in metal, leather and other materials.
• These pliers have an adjustable lap joint; the screw allows the joint to be adjusted as needed.
• The Soft-Touch™ handles are ergonomically designed for superior comfort; their 4" (102mm) length provide excellent leverage for easier punching. All Swanstrom tool handles are latex-free.
This tool is made of high-carbon, high-chrome alloy steel—the highest quality tool steel—and forged for the best combination of strength and durability. The jaws will not be nicked with normal use and keep their shape and finish. The anti-glare finish prevents eye strain caused by reflective glare and increases visibility of the workpiece.
Swanstrom Tools manufactures technically advanced cutters and pliers, forged from high chromium, high carbon alloy steel and hardened to 65 HRC. This material, along with a unique proprietary heat treating process and computer-controlled induction edge-hardening maximize tool life.
• Take care to avoid using these pliers beyond their maximum capacity.
