    Question What brand of eyelet/prong pliers do you have?

    I want to buy a pair, but i want a good one that will last.
    I have seen older ones where the plastic has gotten brittle and
    cracked or fell off the end where you squeeze the snaps together.
    Do they make an all metal one??

    I don't know about an all metal one, the original pliers were probably all metal, but the plastic probably came into being to save money and keep them affordable. I have about four of them, I am not sure where my original one is, but when I see them at flea markets for $1, I usually go ahead and purchase them, just in case, for backup.

    Have you tried Google? I see Dritz, General Tools and Bead Smith. You might also try a Home Depot, Lowe's or Ace Hardware. If you are lucky to have one, feed stores.

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I need recommendations too. The last one I bought cracked the plastic on my pearl backed snaps. Arrrgg!
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.
