TOOLS AND SUPPLIES
Most projects require a chain-nose (w/smooth faces) and a round-nose pliers (with at least one side that is perfectly round), and a wire cutters. If you are using cable wire, you will also need a crimp pliers.
For beginners, we suggest starting with low-end tools (usually around $10.00 in price), getting a good feel for using these tools, and then purchasing higher quality tools. Besides those listed above, you might also consider purchasing a bead reamer.
