March of Tools
I am a follower of Heather Bailey's blog and found that she is doing a fun adventure called the March of Tools.
We all have our favorite tools that we use almost daily...mine happen to be these beauties...wire cutters or nippers.
I use them for cutting the flower stems when I put together artificial floral arrangements. I guess their original purpose was for the auto industry as cable cutters...ahhh what do they know.
I love the long handles as they are very easy to grip and they give awesome leverage for the really hard thick floral wire.
My dear friend Dave Downard at Matco Tools set me up with this pair. He informed me they have a life time warranty, so if they ever do not cut..I can get a new pair. I am not sure he knew what he was getting into when he said that.
So far so good, they have lasted just about a year and still cut like butter. I have blown through other nippers in a months time, so that says a lot for these babies.
I have plenty of other gadgets around the house that I just love, but these have been most valuable to me because they make the job so much easier on my hands.
What's your favorite tool...check out Heathers Blog and take a peek at what others are sharing.
