The last tool deal we arranged for with KC Tool is quite possible the best one. These Gedore 8248-160 JC 6.3″ angled pliers are on sale, today only, for $29.50. Angled pliers provide a more ergonomic angle that can make certain tasks and operations a lot easier on the hands and wrists, and they sometimes provide for better fastener accessibility.
I’m a big fan of NWS’s angled pliers (here’s a show and tell), and the similar Irwin model as well. But they’re full-sized, which means they’re great for the things most users would use them for. But there are times when I wish for something smaller that would be better suited for finer or higher precision work.
That’s not to say that Gedore’s 160mm are meant for light duty work. They’re said to be capable of the toughest of demands, so they should be fine for hard-use applications.
They’ve got a 60° head angle, V-groove jaws with flat front gripping area, hot-forged and tempered steel construction, induction-hardened cutting edges (63-65 HRC), and cushion grip handles for fatigue-free working. They can cut all kinds of soft wire, and hardened piano wire up to 1.6 mm (0.063″, or ~1/16″).

Looks like a good buy but you’re on the fence? I’ll be reviewing these in about a week. You can decide then whether they’re suitable for your needs, and add them to your watch list for if/when this deal comes around again.
