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.

Beam, I see those crimpers offered as a set on e----you say they are made by K-D tools? I have looked and can't find them.

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. Awesome kid !!!!!

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 :)
