ESD safe mini lineman pliers?
« on: November 30, 2023, 08:07:18 am »
I am looking for a pliers head that is serrated perpendicular to the length of the pliers, with a blunt nose.

The purpose of these pliers is to grab a fat component (diode etc) from the side, and then bend it over.
Like mini linemans pliers (5 inch long total).

this with ESD handles

does it exist? their the best for thick diode legs. they need serration.

I would also recommend the Knipex.  I have over a dozen of their pliers.  They are some of the best that are out there.

properly bent diode leads for chirstmas.

I have TONs of high end pliers I bought over the years but oddly enough for bending thick leads, the cheap ass shit is the best. I have some hopes for the serrated knipex.

I really want the fat head for gripping big leads. I could chop it off I guess.
