I hadnâ€™t thought about rating these until I came in to buy a set for the house tool box after stringing the Christmas lights w my â€śbagâ€ť pair. Iâ€™ve had and used my primary pair for....well.. at least 30-40 YEARS. Iâ€™ve given new pairs to others but kept â€śmy pairâ€ť. Never use them for ANYTHING BUT SAFETY WIRE and they last long enough to pass them on. Do NOT buy cheap safety wire plyers! They will nick the wire and imediately make that wire un airworthy.... Iâ€™m an â€śold schoolâ€ť A&PIA and instructor.... Oh... I didnâ€™t even get mine new...so make mine 50+ years of service.
Looks and works well , how London they last, only time will tell, quite happy so far
Superior product in every respect . Dont waste your time or money on anything else...this is the industry standard. Aircraft Spruce 5 star service!
This is model 31W, and the data sheet show this has a brass twist-rod bearing.
