    I think it was Gil or Ron that had mentioned the use of small smooth jawed pliers for use as a temporary clamp to hold parts while gluing. My wifw had given me on of those sets for Christmas years ago and I have been using the pliers. But I never had any real use for the nippers. That is until now. I found that if you have a poertion of the models frame work that you have to trim after assembly the nippers can be used to cut the stock cleanly and with a lot less hassle than trying to sand the surface down. In the US these sets are available at Sears and other stores plus the tools are sold individually
