Great for the size

A workshop essential. I have several pairs of parallel action pliers at the bench. I wouldn't be without them. The 6" version seems to grip better than these, but the 5.5" are so comfortable to use. I use them for everything I can. The only thing I have found is that when gripping small pieces mostly sheet for filing, they tend to slip a little. A bit of masking tape inside the jaws does the trick, but remember to replace it as particles can get trapped and marr you works surface.When mine wear out, I'll buy more.

See my video to learn why.

My right hand, simple as that. I'd be lost without them.

Great set of pliers

I bought these pliers a couple of months ago, they are now an integral part of my daily jewellery life!

Maun Flat Pliers

An absolute God-send. These pliers are perfect for making my necklace set! A definite value for money product!

11 Jun 2013 - by RR

My favourite pliers from the Larsson range but not quite 100% perfect. They are not suitable when I need pressure applied equal along the length. The Maun parallel action pliers are then better. They can grasp items along the length uniformly. Unfortunately they are not as comfortable as the Larsson pliers especially working for a long period of time, nor are they very useful with small things.
