Very helpful to have a few of these around!

The tool doesn't cut at all :(

by -

The tool didn't cut at all and is not easy to use. Luckily I am a jewelry designer and have a cutting tool and a crimper, so I used that instead and it works much nicer. My personal tools offer more flexibility and ease of use for me. Maybe this was a manufacturer defect, but I will stick to my current method and not purchase another of these tools.

fair price for this tool

by -

cuts coils well enough but to twist/turn in coil edges (to prevent unwinding of document) it needs more of a needle nose point to grab the coil and turn it in

It's hard to use it. Can't bend coil.

It is an ok plier. I think they can do it better if they wanted to.

Not as good as I thought

by -

This seems to be a sturdy product, well made. It cuts the coil very well but, is hard to get it to crimp. You have to play with it a lot to finally figure out how to hold it to crimp. I could have continued to bend the coil with a needle nose that I already had. And the needle nose is easier.

Great! Being a lefty and still easy to use.

I'm left-handed so there was a slight learning curve of watching youtube videos. Product does what it is suppose to. Easy to use.

Awsome

works better than my original. this tool performs well on thick coils, only 'ok' on thin ones.

Cheap tool, hard to use, mangles coil

by -

These pliers are the weakest link in a line of otherwise quality products. Made overseas with production costs in mind, they lack the proper design and quality to properly crimp the coils without damage. Very hard to use in any kind of volume - hand fatigue comes easily. The big issue is that the coils are 1.75mm in diameter and the gap in the pliers is only 1.25mm. This causes the coils to get damaged and males the crimp very weak and sloppy looking where the plastic gets skimmed.

It's Fine

by -

The pliers themselves appear to be a "one stop wonder," but in reality, a pair of scissors and a regular set of pliers can do the same job. I was thinking that this was a specific tool to use with the coils, but it's just not that special, alas.

Better than needle nose, but not nearly as good as expected.

by -

Two of us have used with same experience. 30 - 50% of attempted cut/crimps are successful in one motion. Seems to me it could/should be 100%. We still use these rather than needle nose pliers.

Perfect binding tool

by -

Works great, saves us over $100 on each project we bind in house.

1 of 2 worked

by -

Ordered 2, 1 worked great, the other did not, am still waiting for a replacement one.

You really can't spiral bind nice and neatly without one of

Makes a high-quality, finished product!

Just as expected

I have used one similar to this for years at a print shop, and the one I was using finally bit the dust. I'm not sure that the "heavy duty" part of it was really necessary, however it was cheaper than other not heavy duty options. These crimpers are easy to use, if not self-explanatory. Looking at some of the other reviews prior to purchasing said they were difficult to use. This may be that they didn't have the proper technique. Watch a tutorial.
