These MusicMedic large post fitting pliers are a specialised tool for reducing the center hole of a woodwind post to remove play between the post and rod that travels through it. 

When the hole in a post is too large for the rod that travels through it, even properly fitted keys are noisy and difficult to adjust. Precision adjustments are nearly impossible. Before these pliers, fixing these posts was very difficult. Technicians would need to float solder into the post head, sleeve the post head, oversize the rod or, in the case where it is the last post on a stack, split the end of the screw slot. These procedures are very time consuming or unsightly. Fitting posts with these pliers takes seconds and the resulting job is invisible and long-lasting. 

To use the MusicMedic Post Fitting pliers: Place the ball end of the plier on the side of the post hole where you want to reduce the diameter and squeeze the pliers on the post. The ball end of the plier will peen the center of the hole thereby reducing the diameter of the post hole. The parallel action of the pliers allows the opposite jaw of the plier to contact the post head square keeping it from being damaged. It is not necessary to shrink both sides of a post head. 

These post fitting pliers are quickly becoming "required equipment" in many repair shops stateside. Jeff Peterson and Jeff Denning are reputable technicians in the USA and had this to say about them...

"I just got a set of your post swedging pliers and I love 'em. As anyone who sweats the small stuff knows, if your post/rod fit is wobbly then it can almost negate your hours of toiling over key fit. Thanks for the quality tool!" - Jeff Denning 

"Those new Parallel Post Fitting Pliers are crazy-good. My 'solder and ream' days are over! I'm running up to random people on the street, trying to explain my joy! (most of them don't seem to "get it", though)..." - Jeff Peterson
