I responded to a recent posted question about sheet metal tools. It had me looking at an old inventory that included tools from Stubai and others that we had sourced from John Stortz & Co.

They sell some specialized pliers for metal roofing. I’ve provided some links:

Fred, the next time I need to do any job, I should check this valuable list. Just amazing!

Good grief… Fred, do you sleep? That’s an amazing list!

I came across an unusual pair of old pliers in a second-hand store a year ago, made by Giller. (Now out of business after many corporate twists and turns over the years.). I’ve never seen a pair like these, and a Google image search didn’t turn up anything. But they’re quite useful. Aside from the dual jaws, there is a small opening in the end as well. (I added the plastic handle coating with Plasti-Dip.)

they look like battery post cleaners

These are often called “gas pliers”

Now that I know the proper name, I found several hits online:
