Pliers & Cutters
Pliers and cutters are most commonly used in electric work and for wire cutting and stripping. They are used for holding, bending and cutting a wide range of cable, wires and other materials. Most cutters or pliers consist of short jaws at one side, and longer handles on the other side. The handles often feature a soft rubber for enhanced grip. When force is applied to the handles, the jaws close and manipulate the object or material being worked. When used for electrical jobs, ensure the handles offer insulation properties.
The jaws of these tools can come in various types, materials, sharpness, shapes and sizes for a number of different functions.
