MusicMedic Parallel Swedging Pliers - Small
We wanted a plier of impeccable quality for our parallel swedging pliers. The Knipex plier with adjustable, parallel action jaws was the perfect choice. The smooth machined jaws and holes will hold keys firmly to allow for maximum control. The adjustable sliding jaws allows the technician to easily swedge a key on any of the holes in the plier, and the bottom jaw self aligns quickly and easily over the key.
Unlike most key swedging pliers, these modified Knipex pliers have a massive amount of gripping power which will speed up the process of key swedging without overly marring keys. Technicians can squeeze the pliers to swedge and then reposition the key quickly to swedge in a new position. You do not need to twist a key in the jaws to swedge. Turning the key and repositioning the key greatly reduces marring compared to twisting the key.
The superior quality and function of these pliers are the reason they are the GO TO pliers at the key work station in our shop. We surveyed an extensive range of woodwind instruments when deciding on the hole diameter for these pliers. If there is an additional size of hinge tube you need please email us and we can make a custom set for you.
The Small Plier is in thousandth's of an inch to provide a closer fit to the smaller hinge tubes of flute, clarinet and oboe.
The hole diameters are:
These pliers are 100% functional, but are considered "B" stock because of a minor finishing blemish on the outside of the plier jaw. This does not affect the working surface or area of the pliers. All sales are final for items in Curt's Clearance.
