“Extended Jaws” Channel Lock Pliers
Our friend Andy Sewell in England recently sent us photos of a German-made channel lock pliers that he modified for his own use by extending the jaws.
  “These pliers are made of good quality metal but only come in one size, and I needed a larger jaw opening. So I used a cutting disc to cut through the jaw and welded in a piece of steel. I modified several pairs of pliers this way so I’ve got a range of sizes that I can use.
  “I use these modified pliers almost every day and find they work great for holding work and for pressing parts together, such as pressing pins into holes. Obviously the extended jaws don’t close up, but that’s why I have a selection of sizes.”
