These flat-nose pliers feature nylon-lined jaws that shape metal and wire without marring and can be filed or shaped to suit specific applications. The slim shape and smaller size makes this tool ideal for delicate tasks. On flat-nose pliers, both jaws are flat; the nylon lining is ideal for shaping and flattening even soft metal sheet, wire and components.
• These pliers have a box joint; one half of the joint surrounds the other, 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 plastic-dipped handles help ensure hours of comfort.
