Safety wire pliers

Anybody on the NW side have a set of safety wire pliers they would not mind loaning out for a few days?

I need to safety wire the mini for TMGP in Denton, and figured I would check here before I shelled out the cash for a set.

Yep, $7-$10...whatever floats your boat.

I've never seen the HF pliers, but I've been made aware that they aren't all that.

The cyclekweer pliers are pretty good for the monies. I'd go that route. They also have wire available there.

good luck

The ones at harbor freight SUCK, I have a couple of friends with them and it's almost easier to turn by hand since the things never lock onto the wire.

The $20 pair at Cycle Gear works well though, I've been using the same set for years and have no complaints.

Happened to be looking a couple weeks back and found that Harbor Freight doesn't carry them in stock. Order only item.

I have had my HF pliers for several years now. Never had a single problem with them. They're great (and cheap!)

Which HF? The one on 290 @ Jones Rd always has them in stock. Bunches of them. I was just there a couple weeks ago and saw them.

That's exactly where I went. I couldn't find them, and then store guy looked and couldn't find them, then he looked it up on the computer and told me it was an order only item.
