    LONG NOSE PLIERS

    I RECENTLY PURCHASED A PAIR OF MILWAUKEE LONG NOSE PLIERS AFTER I LOST MY BELOVED KLEIN.
    THE MILWAUKEE ARE OK NOT TOO BAD BUT KLEIN ARE MUCH BETTER IN MY OPINION AND WORTED THE PRICE, ALMOST DOUBLE.
    WHAT IN YOUR BAG ??

    There = not here. Their = possessive pronoun. They're = they are
    It's = contraction of it is. Its = the possessive form of it
    Too = also. To = expressing motion. Two = 2
    Then = after that, next. Than = indicates a comparison.

    Some Klein, some others...
    I prefer 'Channel Lock' brand pliers of the design Channelock is famous for...

    Linemans pliers I do not care (they are for cutting romex)...
    I like the GB wire strippers...
    And lately, I have been buying Milwaukee this and that tools... they seem to be well thought out and work!

    Definitely prefer Milwaukee battery tools (FUEL models)

    Knipex are pretty much the gold standard, and they're priced like it too...

    I also have got a Milwaukee 11-in-1 and wire stripper - very pleased with them so far. May get some more of their various hand tools.

    The Milwaukee hand tools are way overpriced and not very good.

    The Milwaukee power tools are fine.

    Iv'e been using the channel lock needle nose for 25 years but the last pair the steel wasn't treated properly the tips just bent. I bought a pair of the Ideal ones they have nice grips but are a little clunky.

    I'm using Dewalt. The 20 volt impacts go a long time between charging.
    Time is $$$.
