"Long Reach Pliers"
Modeled with inspiration from Hartmann style pliers.
After seeing Adam's long reach pliers on Tested.com I realy wanted one. But finding a good supplier in the Netherlands was tricky. Then it occured to me that a 3D printed version could also have its benefits. Being slightly larger it does not reach the small spaces that a real one can reach. However, it is not electrically conductive, so this one can reach into spaces with electric components. Also, being really cheap also means that it makes for a perfect gift.
