Question:

How do I use bail making pliers?

Answer:

Bail making pliers are simply pliers whose jaws are cylindrical in shape and usually two different and ungraduated sizes. Although they can be used in many situations that require the bending of wire in a curved shape, they are titled `Bail` making because a lot of folks use them to form the main bend, consistently on one or several wires at one time, when forming a bail at the top of a pendant.
