Another great idea from Efco ….
Efco wire protectors
These plastic protectors slide over the ends of pliers to give a bit more grip and prevent damage to jewellery wire or other delicate items. Use a heat-gun or hair-dryer to shrink the protector onto the pliers.
The protectors are supplied as a set of four 10cm lengths in three different diameters: 3.2mm, 4.8mm, 6.4mm (x2)
You may have seen in the news reports on the flooding in Germany over the weekend.
Although the the Pfalz region didn’t seem too badly hit – other than a very full and turbulent river Rhine and a lot of waterlogged fields, the rain has caused problems at Efco’s local exchange and they are without internet and phones. Communication is limited to a single fax line and various mobiles!
The latest information we have from Efco is that the phonelines are still out of action, but should be working again tomorrow (5th June)
