The jaws of these unique pliers are specially designed to hold tubing or small rods steady while being cut with a jeweler’s saw, ensuring a perfectly flush-cut end without collapsing the tube. Three corresponding notches in each jaw hold tubing ranging from 2 to 10mm OD. A 1mm slot along the length of the jaws fits a jeweler’s saw blade; set your blade in the slot and saw through the tubing held in the notches in a perfectly straight cut.
• 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.
• The 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 delivers a fast, strong rebound for improved productivity.
• The plastic-dipped handles deliver a comfortable, secure grip.
