The jaws on these pliers are just the right width for so many tasks. They are useful for opening and closing jump rings, wire-wrapping, and the overall manipulation of wire. The finish on these pliers make them less likely to slip when working with metal, yet is smooth enough to help prevent marring of your piece.
These pliers are heavy-duty enough to handle heavier gauge wire such as 12 and 14 gauge, but precise enough to accomplish work of a much more detailed nature. They measure 6.5 inches long with a 2.3mm wide jaw at the tip. The padded handles are comfortable, give plenty of leverage and control, and the spring provides smooth action as you work. Priced in the mid-range, you will find the quality top notch.
