Electric Pliers


Recommended Posts

Hello all i,m very new to this game, Need some advice on electric pliers. Basically i am being taught by a ole hand who likes to do everything by hand lol no machines. He cant be with me most of the time due to health reasons. Im having problems with some stiletto heel tubes damaged and need replaced. His method was to cut the plastic heel remove the piece and then the tube, then glue it back together. I have heard that the tubes can be removed with electric pliers with out effecting the plastic heel, is this true ? Feeling a bit lost need some advice really.

Electric pliers : approach with caution

 

They can simplify a tough tube extraction by giving just enough heat to whip out that little metal tubey sucker - and then whack in a new one .... :D

 

They can also put you in a world of panic - when they sometimes melt the stilly beyond belief , turning a tricky job into a complete nightmare .... :smt089

So I ordered a set of Electric pliers from the Leather Grindery, received them last Friday, had to change the plug to a uk 13amp. Plugged them in for the first time today and gave them a squeeze, they dont half heat up very quick. Now trying to find out any kind of instructions, as they look like could cause a lot of damage in the uneducated hands lol.

They sound like Italian ones (plastic box?) sometimes they have 2 settings for the cables I think 2v or 3v, use them on the lowest setting yes they do heat very quickly. Always switch them off when not using them because it is very easy for them to short and heat themselves.
