8. Variety of Pliers

pliers

Yeah, everybody’s got a distant (or maybe not-too-distant) relative who could fix anything with a worn out pair of pliers and some baling wire, but why subject yourself to that challenge. Different jobs require different pliers. Do yourself a favor and get the kinds you need – and don’t cheap out, either. Shown above (from L to R) are: circlip pliers, needle nose pliers, regular old pliers, locking pliers, and safety wire pliers (bottom).
