Tool Time Janet – Episode 1: Fence Pliers

Reading Time: 3 minutes

They can make your job easier. They can make you successful at whatever you have set out to do.

They can make you want to do more projects.

They make you want to browse  Home Depot and darken the doors of your neighborhood Harbor Freight.

Tool inventors, or whatever they are called, have been very clever in what they have come up with.

Take for instance this set of pliers. They are called fence pliers. I call them my parrotheads.

They are a little heavy, granted, but sturdy is good when you are going to mend fences.
