There are many types of pliers. The most commonly used is the 152 mm modular fish jaws. The sliding jaws of the fish pliers can change the size of the jaws, making it easy to clamp large diameter objects. In order to cut the wire, some fish jaws have a side edge.
Hand pliers are often mistaken for other tools. The use of hand pliers should be limited to the intended use of the design; clamp or cut, never clamp the nut with a hand. There are two reasons for this: First, the jaws of the pliers are flexible, and the nut cannot be fixedly clamped; the second is that the nut of the pliers will leave the nut with a tooth mark, or even make the edges and corners become bald, and will be repaired and disassembled in the future. Caused difficulties.
When using a plier to cut off a wire or the like, the user and the bystander should take care to avoid the inside of the cutting edge of the pliers.
If you want to clamp the workpiece and want to use as little force as possible, then make the pliers jaws as parallel as possible. Also pay attention to the selection of the correct size of the pliers. The correct size and position of the pliers is the basic guarantee for clamping the workpiece.
When cutting the wire with a hand pliers, care should be taken to prevent overloading. The overload will break the blade and the pieces may fly out and hurt people. This requires the user to correctly select the pliers. The selected pliers should be such that one hand can hold the pliers to cut the wire to be cut. Do not use the handle clamp edge to clamp the wire when you are not cutting the wire, then use a hammer to clamp the head.
Pliers, like other tools, should be kept clean and usually pay attention to the oil on the coupling pin, which can reduce wear and prevent rust. Remember, rust is the evil enemy of all tools.
