New Deblocking Pliers from Western Optical

The new line of Deblocking Pliers from Western Optical Supply are designed to fit hubs that measure 12mm round, 15mm round, 15.75 x 12mm and 15.5 x 14.25mm. Match up the dimensions  of the raised hub on your block to the inside dimensions of the plier jaw (stated with each plier style).  As various edgers use blocks from a range of suppliers, matching dimensions is the best way to determine the plier that is suitable for the job. Every plier has a tension screw to adjust the grip on  the block. The Deblocking Pliers #2001, #2002 and #2003 can be seen on the Western Website, www.westernoptical.com where you can watch a live demonstration (Western Optical LIVE! page 21).
