Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
It is not a surprise that a new to me tool popped up when some research was being done on tying leaders for fishing. The leader making sites were ok but when a beading site was viewed the solution was right there. So here is my new toy that was the center of attention today for me.
These are round nose pliers made for making loops in wire. The loops are important to leader making and jewelry beading. After years of fighting making loops with ordinary needle nose pliers, here is the end of the fight. The nose points are round points that make making loops very easy AFTER the short but important learning curve..
It is a wish that my mind had known about this type of pliers many years ago. Apparently they have been around forever but my brain did not recognize the importance of them. A new tool for me is better than a new toy to a three year old.
Sitting around making loops and getting close to trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
