I'm a little like Tim 'The Toolman' Taylor. I think it is a good idea to hook a Chevy 350 V8 to the household blender to get a little more power.
Sometimes however, I've found that a little finess works better thanbrute force. This is especially true when working with delicate electronics, etc. That's where these little pliers come in. They have all the benefits and advantages of their bigger siblings, but are sized just right for intracate work. The cushioned handles are nice and I really love the spring loaded design of the jaws.
Try a set out for yourself - you'll appreciate the fact that size doesn't matter.
I have had a set of the mini Professional Craftsman cutters/pliers for years. I make jewelry and require precision cuts. I have lost my diagonal cutters so went to Sears. This is what they had....NOT the Professional quality I had before (which actually had "Professional" stamped on the joint). I guess they were embarrassed to put it on this low quality imposter. They jaw edges do not meet consistently across, so cuts are ragged or incomplete. I will return and buy a quality jewelers set. Shame on Sears..If you want to make a cheaper set, don't use the name associated with your higher quality...you denigrate the entire line!
