Likewise, people ask, what is the meaning of needle nose pliers?
Needle-nose pliers (also known as pointy-nose pliers, long-nose pliers, pinch-nose pliers or snipe-nose pliers) are both cutting and holding pliers used by artisans, jewellery designers, electricians, network engineers and other tradesmen to bend, re-position and snip wire.
Subsequently, question is, what did pliers originate? Pliers are a hand tool used to hold objects firmly, possibly developed from tongs used to handle hot metal in Bronze Age Europe. They are also useful for bending and compressing a wide range of materials.
People also ask, how are needle nose pliers made?
The pliers' materials usually are made of steel alloys with several additives like vanadium or chromium. The jaws can vary from shape and size, whether its needle nose to heavy duty pliers designed to increase pressure. The surfaces are textured to increase grip and prevent slippage.
What is the use of nose pliers?
Although they're commonly used to cut and bend small wires and electrical wiring, needle-nose pliers have other uses, as well. They can bend, cut and grip where fingers and other tools are too big or clumsy. Needle-nose pliers are good for reaching into tight spots where regular pliers are unwieldy.
