Phillip submitted these very nice electricians’ pliers. At first glance they look like plain needle-nose pliers, but if you look closely you’ll note that there are a few extra features designed into the jaws. Specifically, they can strip 14-gauge and 16-gauge wire, and they can crimp solderless terminals — and still serve as quality needle-nose pliers.
The ones pictures come from Knipex, whom we’ve heard good things about in past comments. They also offer a more modern-gripped version for those of you who enjoy that kind of thing.
Street pricing ranges from $25 to $35 or so, which isn’t bad for a quality set of pliers, IMHO.
