Medium Bail Making Pliers are rated for use with up to 16-gauge wire and are great for a variety of uses such as making even coils, perfect jump rings, consistent s-links, and uniform bails for wire wrapped pieces. The longer, padded handles are extra-comfortable and provide plenty of leverage. The round jaws are barrel-shaped (as opposed to being tapered). In addition, the jaws are two different sizes, adding to the versatility of these pliers. Made of high quality stainless steel.
