and clamping tools
are essential tools used by contractors and for DIY work at home. Clamps fall into two categories; those for wood and soft materials that exert a moderate clamping force, and others that are stronger, intended for clamping metal. Hand-held pliers have a pivoted jaw controlled by two handles. There are many types, including bull-head for heavy-duty work, long nose for precision work, and adjustable for large diameter pipes and fittings. Cutting pliers
use sharp blades for cutting wires. Consider our bench-mounted vises, which provide a solid base for holding, machining, and cutting materials.
