Tool of the Week for March 11, 2013
This week’s tool: Classic Wubbers Narrow Flat Nose Pliers, #PLR-1236
Video by Kate, JewelryTools.com
|This week’s featured tool from JewelryTools.com is the Classic Wubbers Narrow Flat Nose Pliers, PLR-1236.These Narrow Flat Nose Pliers have a jaw tip measuring 2.3mm wide. Compare this to the Mediums measuring 5mm, and the Wide Nose at 6.2mm. Why the different sizes?Using the perfect-size flat nose plier will help you making the perfect wire bundle wrap, the perfect cabochon pull, the perfect bead platform, every time – because it’ll always be the height you want it to be.
Plus, Patti Bullard, the inventor of Wubbers, made sure that each pair of Wubbers is hand-finished, so you won’t have as much wire marring as other pliers, even closing jump rings and making spirals with wire up to 12-gauge. Wow!

I think Kate meant to say, closing jump rings These are very good for closing jump rings.

I own and use the small and medium bail making wubbers all the time in my wire wrapping. I am in the process of purchasing the square and triangle wubbers. I use these daily and absolutely love them. The spongey handles feel so good and i can work for long periods of time without pain or fatigue and I have severe arthritis in both hands. I highly recommend wubbers to anyone with strength or pain problems in the hands. The small jaws of these flat nose pliers work especially well in all areas of wire working and I always tell my students look for these first then add other sizes as needed. BeBeaz
