In-Box Review
Metal Forming Plier Set

by: Matt Leese [ MATT ]

To Quote thew Micro Mark Website:
"Our set will make loops, rings, S, C, Z, L and just about any other shape. Set bends strip stock up to 1/32 inch thick and wire up to 3/32 inch. The strange looking plier at the top of the photo will even bend hardened music wire. Made of polished stainless steel with box joints that keep jaws in alignment. Orthodontist's use these and pay about $28.00 each from dental supply houses. We buy directly from the manufacturer. The result is a set of incredibly useful, well-made tools at a great price."

 


Ok, This set does seem a bit Expensive at first. I wrestled with the purchase off and on for a year or so and decided to try them. The set will make the all the shapes listed and then some if you use your imagination. The pliers take a little experimenting to figure out which one does what. The set is very versatile. If you do a lot of scratch building I'd recommend the set. It does make life a little easier.
