Cool tool

Recommended Posts

40 years ago there was an even "cooler" tool which did exactly the same thing without having to charge batteries called FENCING PLIERS! They still make them! The neat little trick at the end of the clip with the hole? A 4mm hole drilled in a short piece of flat bar did the same thing for thousands of stock farmers who practised the dark art of "fencing"!

There are a pair in my tool box Andy. (no flash plastic grips though) They also have a 5mm countersunk hole drilled about 10mm in from the end of one handle for winding work. I'll see if I can find them. Thought I'd see the last of repairing cocky fences and they are with our fencing gear at my Dad's.

I was given a brand new set of these modified pliers for my 21st birthday, from Bill an old station fella I grew up with. He spent his youth on horse back and motor bikes out on the Nullarbor running fencelines.
