This week’s tool: 8-Plier Wood Block, #HOL-315.08

Video by Kate, JewelryTools.com

This week’s featured tool from JewelryTools.com is the 8-Plier Wood Block HOL-315.08.

Bigger than the 3-plier block, this wooden organizer will happily store your eight favorite pliers and cutters, so your work bench stays as clean and organized as possible. And at less than $10, in my experience, this tool pays for itself quickly in saving me time looking where my favorite pliers went! (Currently my favorite is the fine split ring plier, which used to disappear all the time – a close second is my pair of 6-step barrel pliers)

What’s your favorite plier that you don’t like losing? Let me know in the comments below!

    This was too funny to see this morning. This weekend while on ebay I looked at this item and thought it would be nice to have as I glanced at my work table and saw all my tools spread out over it. I’ll order one from you guys today. Thanks! Nanette

    I use a curtain rod covered in “Scct Guard”, the non-slip rubber shelf liner to hang all of my tools right in front of my work space. Works great and frees my work surface.

      I think I like your idea. What is Scct guard curtain rod? Security Guard?

    LOL! I have two of those blocks filled–plus a clear plastic bead-bottle holder, and a couple of clear long Handy Boxes and they are all full. I keep a set of fine tipped glitterhandle Beadalon(?) pliers in one, my WigJig plier set in another, and my miscellaneous collection of nylon tipped,various round Wubbers and the odd hole punch and split ring plier in the 13hole clear, plus extra faily-often-used pieces in the Handy Box. My dream is to get a set of Lindstrom pliers–they’d certainly get their own block!

      I encourage you to invest in the Lindstrom’s. My heart is broken I just had my set stolen along with all my supplies. Going to purchase the round nose again, soon. The round nose are fantastic. Can really get along without the other pliers in the set.

    Hello, I have been so busy makeing jewelry that I have neglected to buy much for storing my tools of which I have so many that they are constantly tangling up with themselves,I am currently using a wooden type of tool holder but it is rapidly getting to small for all my tools so I better order one or two of your blocks.So far I have made over 760 necklaces and over 1000pairs of earrings too many bracelets to count so far no toe rings all this in about five years of jewelry making but so much fun anyway,now I need to market all this stuff!!!It really is nice jewelry and so fun to make.

    I currently use a 6 inch square plastic box and hang 4 pliers on each side. When I’m done working I put the pliers inside the box and stash them at the foot of the bed with my other supplies. Since I live in an RV, I don’t have my own work space, so everything has to be easy to quickly stash. The wooden one certainly looks a lot nicer than my box! Maybe someday when I live in a house again!

    My “better half” and I made a custom plier rack. We used 3 wooden dowels in a trigular shape with scrap plywood for the ends. It works really well. At the time we built it I thought an 18″ long rack would be plenty of storage for everything—but, it is now full and I have a bit of an overflow. I just keep the specialty pliers in a draw and keep the most often used ones on the rack. It sure makes finding the right set of pliers so much easier. It is sure a time saver to have everything right at hand and easy to find.

    I started off using a bookend to hold the pliers, it worked well but I rapidly ran out of room on it.
