Chain Nose Pliers are the most used tool in my arsenal.

 

Good For

  • Folding tabs. The round shape can be use to "roll" while folding, pulling the tab tight. Then flatten.
  • Twisting tabs
  • General bends, but not precise 90 degrees. Flat Nose Pliers are better for this, as you can reference 90 degrees off the sides.
  • Creating cones or curves around the closed jaws
  • Better than tweezers for many reasons, but mostly getting a good, precise, firm grip.
  • Flattening parts that may have become misshapen or dented, but with with limited access.
     

Not Good For

  • Reaching deep, confined spaces. Longer Chain Nose Pliers are better, and Extra Long Needle Nose Pliers are the best for this.
  • Creating perfect 90 degree bends. Flat Nose Pliers are better for this, as you can reference 90 degrees off the sides.
