Those hose ring pliers pay for them the first time you have to clean the coin trap on a Frigidaire front loader.

That's ezzzzzacly why I bought 'em in the first place.  After struggling one time for 10 minutes to get that suction boot back on, I thought there had to be a tool for that because I know they had to be screwing with other techs, too.

Went to our Sears and saw a pair of wire strippers like Applianceman97 has made by IRWIN. They strip cut and crimp 10-24 gauge wire. $19.95 doesn't seem too bad. Does anyone have these? I'd like to know how they hold up.I doubt they are as good as the older ones but they might be worth it.

I have one from sears.  it replaced one that was handed down from my father.  It dated back to the 1950's.   Only reason I replaced it was that it disappeared.

Sorry someone took yours.I have a few tools that I have had a long time.I try to keep up with them and so far I have not ever had any thing taken.I used to work as an electrician in a plant and I took my tools home every day.I guess that's being kinda silly but I just didn't trust some of the people that were there on shift.I think the people I am around now have too much respect for me than to take my tools.I hope someday you find your Dads wire strippers.

My grandpa gave me mine. Thought I lost them the other day... Had a slight panic attack. (Found them in my back pocket)

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

Are they the Craftsman set?  The KD set does not have the black grips on them, just the red grips.  I bought the KD set because I did not see them for sale at the local Sears anymore.  And I use them alot.

 

Let me look in my files and I'll post where I bought them later tonight.

 

Gonna be somewhat of a busy day today..... it's my youngest son's 14th birthday. :yes:  Awesome kid !!!!!


I think this will work. I once saw it on a cartoon.

Or, on the other hand.....

Troubleshooting the appliance's complex electro-mechanical systems is the methodology in which one must, by using analyitical techniques and the process of elimination, determine the cause or causes of a specific failure. Rarely does this cause of a failure directly present itself for you to see.

So.....

To be better equipped to troubleshoot, you will need:

1.) To follow this: Safety first and foremost. Trust your instincts.
2.) Basic hand tools.
3.) A decent DVOM meter. Buy one. Borrow one. You need one.
4.) Last, but certainty not least, common sense. Most of us have it. Slow down and use it.

Now, let's have some fun!

Hope is the power that gives a person the confidence to step out and try.
Success is the maximum utilization of the ability you have.

Hi wish, Merry Christmas !

 

Here's what I found:

 

Part #'s on the individual KD Tools:  Crimper 3794-73  Stripper 3794-72  Cutter 3794-71

 

Google KD Tools 3794.

 

Wayfair.com thru Walmart.com has them in stock $41.

 

On eb*y, the set is still available $35.95 plus $5.99 S&H.

 

autotoolworld.com has them $36.56 (search:  KD Tools 3794 3 Pc. Mini Cutter, Stripper, and Crimper Kit)

 

I'm fairly certain the Craftsman branded set is NLA.  But these are them, without the black grips Sears put on them.

 

I hope this is the info you were looking for.  Let me know if you have anymore questions.

I gave up on the Frigidaire spring clamps long ago... I use my channel-locks or other pliers to take them off and then replace the damn thing with a screw clamp. So much easier :)
