About the Pliers
These bending pliers are perfect for small photo-etched parts which have no identifiable bending lines. The flat tip of these pliers will give any modeler peace of mind as even if the PE parts are held firmly, they will not be scratched. When bending PE parts at right angles, sometimes the bent section will spring back, but these pliers make the bending of such angles easy without the need for special techniques. The pliers come with very comfortable grips. It is possible to bend straight lines up to 15mm at a time with this tool and it can also be used with other materials such as plastic.
