A common hand tool for woodworkers and DIYers alike is pliers. Pliers are used to hold an object in place as well as bending, compressing or manipulating an object. Generally pliers are made up of handles on one end an metal jaw-like levers pivot on the other end. This allows the handles to be gripped and pressure applied at the metal end to exert force.
