I love the way one can finally upload pictures by dragging and dropping.
Been a long time coming.
I bought a pair of circlip removing pliers from the local hardware store.
Then I heat the tips with my flame and bend them inwards.
I like push down on the ceramic soldering pad as I heat it.
Check how the plastic does not melt even though the tips are slightly warm.
I wanted to keep the plastic on but because the jaws were now much wider, the handles were also too far apart, even for my big front paws.
So I stripped the plastic and heat bent them so my little hand could hold them easier.
So I use them to hold rivets, and domed things and squash hot things when I am soldering.
I mean the jaws have already seen the gates of hell, so a little bit of flame won’t worry them much.
Here is another set of long nose pliers that I modified.
I use this one to hold pearl cups
So you can sand or file it easier.
I got some more mods coming soon on this thread, and if you got your own, post them, because you know, skills and stuff.
