A truly revolutionary idea that is simple, yet extremely effective. It was invented and patented by a master jeweler and is called “Wrap and Tap” pliers. Wrap and Tap because a jeweler can wrap ring stock around the barrel shaped jaw, then tap it slightly on a mandrel and instantly make a complete ring, half or quarter shank for repair. The PL7414 is a 14mm model. A 19mm model is also available.
The 14mm is good for ladies rings and the 19mm is good for men’s rings and coin bezels. You can get a perfect circle every time with wire up to 2mm thick. The pliers are stainless steel with PVC coated handles. Overall length is 6”.
