These beautiful pliers are just plain awesome. If you've ever had to remove a spring that has broken off inside or flush with the post before, you're familiar with the risk of moving the post, scratching the post, and generally how challenging it can be to access the broken spring from the desired angle.
Parallel Broken Spring Removing Pliers make the job of removing the broken spring fast and simple. The jaws of the pliers have two set screws, allowing you to change the distance of the pointed insert from the tip of the jaws, close for clarinets and flutes, and further away for saxophones. Simply insert the desired thickness and length of spring into the jaws and tighten the set screw. The great thing about using a spring to push out a broken spring is that they are made from the same hardness of material, you can select the exact diameter needed, and you can always have a freshly pointed tip for the most accurate results. You may find it helpful to change the temper of your spring insert before you insert it. If so, heat the spring tip and harden as desired.
The narrow jaws of the pliers allow you to get into tight spots, between posts, under some keys, and even between springs in opposing directions on a single post. Parallel pressure is applied directly on the broken spring, making slips less likely. The slotted jaw allows you to approach the spring from the top of the post or the side. Parallel Broken Spring Removing Pliers are made from stainless steel in-house at our facility in Wilmington, NC. They come with a spring and an Allen key to adjust the set screws. Use with any of our Blued Steel Needle Springs.
