The cost here is not the important factor and it is quite difficult to break, also a set of a few cheapest needle-nose pliers too.
PLR30 offered by Plyworx is the original plier’s rack that can easily fit within your toolbox drawer and it holds 32 pliers of various sizes. It can always be cut to fit within any drawer size and has 10 extra-wide slots meant for pliers having insulated handles. This rack is 30” long.
Many types of pliers are available that can perform different tasks. A few of the common tasks are as follows:
Most cutting pliers are having sharp cutting edges with a certain major shearing power. They are designed for cutting heavy gauge wire, bolts, and nails. These cutting pliers are usually tapered for reducing the sudden “snap” while cutting, unlike other wire cutters.
These are also called electrician’s pliers, which have got flat deeply toothed jaws with a side-cutting blade. They are designed for holding, cutting, and twisting any solid electrical wire.
They are also called long-nose pliers, have got narrow and long jaws. This will make them great if you work in tight places. Also, they are useful for any intricate work e.g. jewelry and electronics work.
You can find such slip-joint pliers in almost anyone’s toolbox. They are quite a versatile variety of pliers that can provide 2 jaw width positions. The first position will allow the jaws to be close to each other, which is perfect for grabbing any thin objects.
The next position will leave a gap between the jaws and allow for a larger capacity of the jaw. You can use slip-joint pliers in several gripping operations like pulling wire, removing hose clamps, holding nuts and bolts securely.
These are adjustable pliers that can lock closed on any object like a vise. So, your hand will be free instead of holding the pliers in its place. Usually, most locking pliers have got an adjusting screw that can change the width of your jaw opening as per the object size. Such pliers are also available in different sizes with various styles of the jaw – e.g. straight, curved, and needle-nose.
These are great as general-purpose pliers. This kind of plier with a cam-and-ratchet mechanism will allow the pliers to adjust quickly to an object because the handle remains squeezed.
This will keep the jaws parallel with the object’s sides and allow for a sturdy and accurate fit also with excellent gripping power.
These pliers are similar to any self-adjusting pliers, but they have to be adjusted manually to the object size. The adjustment will be done through a few series of channels or grooves.
Such pliers come in several sizes with different styles of jaw e.g. smooth, straight, and curved. Generally, they are used in plumbing applications.
