How to Use your Pliers to Reshape the Wire

The Key to Understanding the Animation...


Chain Nose Pliers

Chain Nose PliersThe chain nose pliers will look like this in the animation. (It is a graphic representation of a chain nose pliers.)

Why is it two half circles?

The two half circles are more or less the shape of the pliers' prongs... at the point where the pliers grip the wire.



Round Nose Pliers

Round Nose PliersThe round nose pliers will look like this in the animation.

Why is it two circles?

The answer is the same for the round nose as the chain nose pliers. The two circles are more or less the shape of the pliers' prongs... at the point where the pliers grip the wire.



The Steps... Super Short
