An ingenious tool that uniformly twists wire up to .060" dia. Here's how it works:
- Take a length of wire and fold it in the middle. Grasp the 2 loose ends in the jaws of the pliers ( for relatively thicker wires, you may need to flatten the ends of the wire somewhat ). Press the handles of the pliers firmly and lock in place.
- Place the folded end of the wire in a bench vise or around a nail.
- Pull the chrome knob at the end of the pliers, which will cause the pliers to spin. Release the chrome knob and pull again for a tighter twist.
- Release the lock on the pliers and remove your twisted wire.
This tool also has a side cutter near the joint of the pliers. 10 1/2" long overall. This is the better quality, made-in-Taiwan version of this tool.
