    to what George said. I love these little things, there's a little bit in the middle of the tube that you squeeze with your pliers. They're neat and easy and I would buy them from Cooksons too if they stocked them.

    The one beginning with P. With the worst customer service in the world at the moment (unfortunately).

    I haven't ever had a problem with them but I haven't placed an order for a few months.

    I have been toying with the idea of getting the Magical crimping pliers. There are different sizes from what I can see, for different sizes of softflex. Does that mean you can only use them with 'softflex' or is that just a marketing ploy? Do they work on any crimps on any wire?

    They seem to work on any 2x2 crimp - I think, like everything else, the better quality (thicker walled) are more reliable. And they definitely work on any wire - I use them on sterling wire as well to hold things in place, or to make an instant headpin. The different sizes are supposed to be for .019 and .014 beading thread, but to be honest, I find the smaller ones slightly more useful, and end up finishing just about everything off with them.

    As a bonus, they make a nice little pair of mini-flat nosed pliers for awkward jump rings as well
