Default New tools for Christmas

My dad came up from Wagoner, OK today for our Christmas with him. This what he gave me. A set of Kobalt Magnum Grips. The bigger set has a wire crimper and cutters. I like em.

it takes a while to get used to the slip grip
its complettly different than a channel lock

I like mine
seems to give a good hand grip each time

I played with em a bit out in the garage and i absolutely love em! Works good on a rounded nut. The wire crimpers are kinda useless. If the wire could slide into a notch instead of a hole it'd be perfect. J is right it takes a bit to get used to in the way they slide.
