Cheaply made. It appears that aircraft tools are becoming a cheaply made tool. For the price and name brand, the safety wire twisters should be top quality. From the feel of using them, I donâ€™t expect them to last very long. Milbar needs to step it up.
This is my second one. I really enjoy their products. Works great.
Overall these are good quality wire twisters, however we ordered 5 or 6 pairs and one of them was manufactured incorrectly. Aircraft Spruce Shipped us a replacement pair at no charge, but didnt communicate they were going to do that. Overall would buy again.
My Milbar pliers worked well, especially in comparison to the off brand pliers purchased by a club member. Note of caution: While teaching an inexperienced club member how to safety wire and while my back was turned, he broke the pliers by allowing the threaded grip to come loose while he furiously tried to finish the task. Lesson learned: Keep you eyes on your tools.
Great price, fast shipping.
Looks like a quality product
I am rating the 6 Reversible pliers. They are JUNK. The reversing mechanism WILL NOT hold up with anything heavier than 0.025 wire. I have had these 2 years and after one round of pulling .052 wire theyre done! The standard NON-reversing pliers have served me for 30 years. The return spring is a bit weak but they still work!
Per our tech: They have serrated jaws.
Per the supplier: Yes, they are. Made in the USA.
Per the manufacturer: 1 year manufacturer warranty from date of receipt for evaluation, repair or replacement.
Yes. These twisters are reversible so they will allow for right-hand (clockwise) and left-hand (counterclockwise) twists.
Per supplier: P/N# 12-01631 have an overall length of 8-3/4" and wire capacity of .041. P/N# 12-02018 have an overall length of 11" and a wire capacity of .060.
The pliers with a cushion is used to help secure the cut off piece of wire, commonly used in areas where the cut off piece of wire can be a problem if dropped.
