Music Medic wanted to create a tool of impeccable quality for the parallel swedging pliers. The Knipex plier with adjustable, parallel action jaws was the perfect choice. The smooth machined jaws and holes will hold keys firmly to allow for maximum control. The adjustable sliding jaws allows the technician to easily swedge a key on any of the holes in the plier, and the bottom jaw self aligns quickly and easily over the key.
Unlike most key swedging pliers, the Knipex pliers have a massive amount of gripping power which will speed up the process of key swedging without overly marring keys. Technicians can squeeze the pliers to swedge and then re-position the key quickly to swedge in a new position. With these pliers, you do not need to twist the key in the jaws to swedge. Turning the key and re-positioning the key greatly reduces marking compared to twisting the key.
The superior quality and function of these pliers are the reason they are the go to pliers at the key work station at Music Medic. They surveyed an extensive range of woodwind instruments when deciding on the hole diameter for these pliers. If there is an additional size of hinge tube you need please email us and we can organise a custom set for you.
The Small Plier is in thousandth's of an inch to provide a closer fit to the smaller hinge tubes of flute, clarinet and oboe...
