Channellock 360 Welder's Pliers

Product Review (submitted on May 17, 2013):

I purchased these for the Channelock brand and the fact that they are made here in USA. They fit well in the hand especially with welding gloves on as the handles are curved closer together. The wire cutting edges are heat treated and do cut clean without flattening the wire edges. The tool itself appears to be a stamped forging and is finished square at the nose with inletting (groove) on the tool tips. I like the smooth design rather than serrated as some tools have, it is a lot less destructive to my brass mig nozzle. The serrations inside of the nose tips are sharp and align perfectly with the mating tip with no air gap, providing a positve grip on the wire for pulling. The nozzle removal area of the tool is splined and is designed to work with the handle span of the tool providing a positive grip. Some would also like to know that this tool is designed to be used left or right handed.
