Using Looping Pliers to make Eyepins

Get the exact same loop everytime with these stepped looping pliers

Step 3. Roll all the way over the mandrill Step 4. Now twist the other side all the way over
Step 5. Remove from pliers Step 6. Cut with your flush cutters
Step 7. If needed tighten loop up Step 8. Put back in pliers, hold tight with shank near edge of pliers and bend back so loop is now centered
Step 9. You've now made your own eyepin Looping pliers can be good for "in-close" work too
