Over the summer I did a big cleanup of the workshop and found a set of precision pliers in a zipped case. I don’t know how long I’ve had them, maybe 20 years, but they were in pristine condition without a speck of rust. They are on back on the workbench now and inspired me to do a review of this kit.
For those times when you need to access the tiniest of parts you will need a set of pliers that can precisely pick up and place your components. These pliers quite often come in a set, such as the one reviewed here. The nylon bag includes a 5 piece set: mini need pliers, long nose pliers, diagonal pliers, end cutting pliers, and linesman pliers. The pliers are spring loaded. As I mentioned they are of a high quality material and corrosion resistant. They are also comfortable to use for those times when you might have a long job.
What is each plier used for?
- Mini Needle Plier
For holding and repositioning wire and small objects
- Mini Long Nose Plier
For cutting, bending, twisting and gripping wire
- Mini Diagonal Plier
For cutting wire
- Mini End Cutting Plier
For pinching, cutting, or pulling an object
- Mini Linesman Plier
For gripping, twisting, bending and cutting wire
- Good fit for long jobs
- Great for computer work
- Some customers complain the pliers do not cut very well
For electronics repair and other small component work
This set will make a good addition to your tool kit. They are great for occasional use and as a backup set of pliers.
