Recommendations for Best Needle Nosed Pliers?
Posted by Anonymous on Thursday, October 2, 2003 6:06 PM
Hi! Can anyone recommend the best needle-nosed pliers for working with PE? I am looking for ones that are really long and have a fine point for working with 1/350th PE.

Any on-line source?

Some of these PE parts are so small, if you blink you lose it. LOL!

Thanks,

James (who can't imagine how some of you work with 1/700th) Smile [:)]

Well I tried, but that Part# is not valid. Even tried part of the part number search. Nothing. What is the description of the item?

Search Channellock and then the apropriate type of pliers. I did the search my self and got nill!?! Here is their email and a 1-800 # if you want to inquire more. I mostly buy their micro size stainless steel tubing, but look at the tools in the catalog. 1-800-339-2116 and their email is <parts@smallparts.com> Don't forget to get their free catalog if you use any small size tubing, you can't beat their selection. They have a lot of other stuff as well that we modelers love!Wink [;)]

Thanks for the links. Actually found something better while checking them out. Self closing tweezers. I think these are better suited for my beeds.

Thanks again,
