    I have a lot of knipex tools and I have never seen a dedicated welding pair of pliers from knipex. What I can tell you is that their larger needle nose pliers worked great as welper pliers. You can cut Mig wire, clean the nozzles, and remove tips.

    Sure, just about any pair of combination needle nose work great. They have cutting, two size gripping, and the needles for clearing out the nozzle. I got my first pair of welders helpers as a gift this year from my son. I have been using a half broken set of needle nose pliers for the last 25 years.

    maybe knipex holds there head up higher, than to make mig pliers. i never could get over how starrett has a tape measure, i think snap-on has pipe wrenches, - how self degrading

    Most tool makers universal tools like the Crescent Hammer, or the Screwpry Chiseldriver, I don’t see Knipex going that low yet.

    I got a Starrett special anniversary edition 25 ft tape measure & belt buckle about 25 or 30 years ago, the tape was really nothing special, almost an exact copy of the chrome cased Stanley.

    Some of the "Brand Name" tools that fall outside the Brand"s line of expertise don't have much to do with the Brand. They license the use of their name to other manufacturers as a sales gimmick for the ones actually making the product.

    i know, a 100+ yr old precision company goes and does something like that. by the way, a while back u said it was ok to put neosporin in ur eye, even though the directions say not too. i had eye problem recently, it worked great/fast, thanks - its amazing the things u can learn on weld web

    Those Snap-on pipe wrenches look suspiciously like Rigid
    pipe wrenches. At least it’s a good pipe wrench. The “Snap-
    on” drop light I got from Ace hardware (piece of crap)
    broke after a few weeks. I don’t know if it was unauthorized
    use of the brand name and logo or not but when I asked
    Snappy to warranty it he laughed at me.

    I'm trying to get the knipex 13 92. But the say dont cut steel, they look just like the ones in post 4 the 13 96 which I dont think they say that on the handle. The handle is little more bulky on the 96 so that's why I was thinking get the 92's. I'm curious if the 96 cuts like the 92?

    If they say "Don't cut steel", don't try it those will have a sharper, thinner cutting edge. Steel will just put huge nicks in the blades. I've had idiots use my copper cable cutters on steel wire and totally ruin them.

    I have a pair of Channel lock welding pliers I got before the Japanese made Welpers and I have the opposite experience with them. They don’t cut the wire off all the way and the wire just hangs and stays connected. Bad cutters IMO.

    I’d go with Welpers as they are cheap enough and you get a great cut on the wire every time. My 2 cents. Heck get two pairs so you always have a back up in cas they walk away or get momentarily misplaced.

    I was replacing the shares on a 7x18 bottom plow on my brother-in-laws farm,, and he happened to walk by, (about 1973)

    He said,, in a gruff voice,,
    "NEVER use a 12" Crescent Wrench for a HAMMER,,,,,,,,
    when a 10" will do,,,,, "

    He laughed,, and walked away,,,,

    It is funny how you remember certain things about some people,,,,,,,,,,,

    Ok. I was thinking I'd be alot happier with spring loaded pliers and those look like about it from them that will work for cleaning a cup out. I was thinking the needle nose they sell have rounded jaws on the outside and squared off would be better. I may call them tomorrow if they have a customer service line and try and figure out the best pliers from them for mig welding, the ones in post 4 would be perfect but not sure if they can handle.035 wire

    As mentioned most made for copper will indent the cutting edge and not cut cleanly after that with any use on steel. Only way to know for certain is try I would think but be prepared to damage them. Once they mess up they may also leave burr on wire end.

    Going to try these. Right of the Bat it has a small extremely weak spring. I'm going to get the Japanese ones also. They have them on the way to work at the welding shopName:  20210716_181931.jpg
