aircraft mechanic tools


The smart people at Craftsman are at it again, this time adding a light to the popular style of pliers. Seeing these for the first time made me think, “why didn’t I think of that!?” Perfect for installing cotter pins, any aircraft mechanic would want these in his/her tool collection. These unique pliers are designed for rough conditions. The batteries are even sealed behind an o-ring protected compartment. Speaking of the power source, the light runs off of three #392 watch batteries.  The LED module is also oil proof and chemical proof.  I wouldn’t recommend dipping them in any Skydrol however. The light has a push button to turn it on/off and features an auto off function to save batteries.
