Exactly - and great also to straighten a bend jet pricking needle.
@Harder D. Soerensen
I’ve been using the Knipex for a few months now. I love them!
I am yet to use the pliers.
The red handled parallel jaws look promising.
Re OP (8th of April)
Thank you John @presscall
I have yet to use the pliers as well because they have just now arrived!
Japan -to- US shipping, for my package, was delayed 11 1/2 weeks and on Covid time it felt like it was taking forever.
Seller claimed he shipped it same day (no tracking, arghhh). I was patient with him.
Now with package in hand, indeed Japan Post (Air Mail) did accept it on his end on April 9.
Mine, like Ivan's seen above, w/green handle came in the Japanese packaging.
I'm removing stubborn fasteners regularly and expect to get a lot of use from these. Until now I hadn't seen that type of curved gripping surface.
Until now I've relied on the crushing grip of vice-grip pliers,
being sure the gripping surface was like new and right sized.
A vice-grip with a PZ-58 gripping surface might be one better.
The PZ-58 as-is provides adequate grip but a plier that clamps on (not having to regrip) is big plus and something I'll think about. Thanks again.
OMC, a hose clamp or two across the plier handles might get you there.
Screw removal locking pliers
Ah ha ! and there it is. The PZ-66 is just the ticket.
If you get the Knipex to pair with the Engineer you won’t look back.
@OMC Pity you had such a long wait, but glad you assess the tool as worth the wait.
