Leather Lined Pliers


#1
Does anyone know where I can get a good pair of leather lined
pliers with a fine tip -- either a round/flat or a chain-nose? I
have a nylon pair, but it's not working as well as I'd like. I
can't find the leather lined anywhere. 

Claire, I’ve never heard of leather lined pliers! To protect my wire
from tool marks I’ve temporarily used Scholl’s mole-skin on my
pliers, but have you thought about cutting them out from old gloves
and using contact cement? Barges is a good one. But if you’re using a
fine tip, you may be SOL…leather just won’t stay put when you go
that fine.

What are you trying to accomplish?
