I own the Craftsman version — that no longer appears to be made — of the tools listed. These from MAC seem spendy, but Amazon is a great reference.”
These indeed look quite useful, especially for tight automotive dash both inside the dash and under the hood.
The set consists of five six” pliers: end cutter, bent long nose, diagonal, pointed long nose, and long needle nose.
We couldn’t find the set on MAC’s site — as pretty as the new site is, the search engine leaves a bit to be desired! — but Amazon sells ’em for $54. That’s not incredibly pricey compared to Craftsman, especially when you consider this is a 5-piece set. And if you’re looking for a set on the cheap, Froogle turned up a couple on eBay down in the sub-$40 range.
There’s also a 10-piece set on eBay right now for $110.
