View Full Interactive Version Of This Page : Yet Another Use For Crimp Pliers...
I used them today when removing beads from their mandrels... no skidding, no mangling. I'm not sure why I reached for them... but they sure work!
Oh what a fantastic idea! I'll have to try it for those that don't just twist off. thanks.
my best method for stubborn stickers has been to soak them in water....then use the pair of stained glass pliers that i have that the business ends are really wide and covered with pads of rubber about 1/4" thick. I grip the bead gently with these and use vice grips to hold the mandrel and VERY gently twist in opposite directions. this only really works if the bead is a smooth shape and not one of my critters with alot of detailed add ons.
