Innovative Design Ensures Precision and Easy Handling
Irwin recognizes that effective pliers need to securely grip a variety of surfaces and also need to sit comfortably in your hand. Irwin's 12-Inch GrooveLock Pliers delivers on both fronts.
The innovative press-and-slide button allows for quick, easy adjustment of the lower jaw, saving you time and frustration. The V-shape of the jaws offers multipurpose performance and helps you handle round pieces, as well as square- or hex-shaped hardware. The jaws' right-angle teeth grip in all directions to help prevent slippage and ensure you avoid damaging the materials at hand.
In addition, the pliers' Multi-Groove Ratcheting System features twice as many groove positions than any other groove-joint pliers, so you get a precise hold as well as more ways for you to hold the pliers. This system's ratcheting action allows the pliers to be adjusted from the open position up to your work piece by pushing the handle up--no need to press the button or reposition.
Precision Parts for Durability and Performance
A metal injection molding (MIM) process is used to create the precision parts that make up the 12-Inch GrooveLock Pliers. This adds strength and durability to the pliers' build. Because this process allows for the consistent and affordable creation of complicated parts, it also plays a large part in ensuring accurate, reliable performance.
ProTouch Grips Provide Comfort and Control
A tool can only perform accurately if you're in complete control of it, and Irwin's trademarked ProTouch grips make it easy to handle the 10-Inch GrooveLock Pliers. Their non-slip, anti-pinch handle design provides improved comfort and control. Furthermore, since the well-balanced pliers operate comfortably, you can look forward to less hand fatigue when working on extended tasks and repetitive jobs.
While each pair of GrooveLock pliers is versatile enough to handle a wide variety of tasks, Irwin offers GrooveLock pliers in a variety of sizes with straight, smooth, and V-shaped jaws, so you can select the configurations that best match your most common applications.
The 10-Inch GrooveLock Pliers are backed by Irwin's VISE-GRIP lifetime warranty.

Gazette-Times article (12/30/96): `The mechanic' quietly keeps city on track Officials, friends have nothing but praise for manager By Aaron Corvin, Gazette-Times reporter No one may ever get the better of Jon Nelson, a seemingly unshakable man who has quietly managed the city of Corvallis for the last three years. He doesn't just have patience. He has patience that crackles. ``A Norseky can work anybody to the grave,'' said Ron Seastrand, who owns the caboose-turned-barbershop, All Aboard Hair Design, where Nelson gets his sparse, walnut-colored hair snipped. As a fellow Norwegian, Seastrand said he understands Nelson. ``He's got that long wind. He's just a real hard worker,'' he added. Seastrand said Nelson is close-mouthed about his job and any new projects the city has undertaken. ``He just describes himself as a mechanic,'' he said. ``His job is to keep the streets clean and the water running.'' Apparently, Nelson is an adept mechanic. No one is complaining, at least not publicly, about how he's doing his job. The Corvallis City Council, Nelson's boss besides the public, gave him a sterling job review this month. But such harmony among the city manager, the public and councilors wasn't always the case. Four years ago, the city split over outspoken city manager Gerald Seals. Critics pinned the city's problems on Seals, accusing him, among other things, of poor personnel management. His supporters argued that he made government more accessible to citizens. And Seals, who is black, charged a few of his critics with racism. Seals eventually resigned, but not before the Gazette-Times had run a spate of opinion columns and front-page news stories that chronicled the city's problems. These days City Hall is a whisper on Page 2. And the city's most pressing problems are Measure 47 and growth, not allegations of political chicanery. Those who either work or have worked for Nelson attribute the city's lack of controversy, in part, to Nelson's low-key management style and urbane manner. ``He's a very open and friendly person,'' said Benton County Commissioner Kent Daniels, who has worked with Nelson on law enforcement issues. ``He's a reasonable person. But at the same time, he's not afraid to let you know where he stands.'' Charlie Vars, former mayor of Corvallis, plowed through the blizzard of interviews that led the council to eventually hire Nelson in 1993. Several moments during the interview process endeared residents to Nelson, Vars said. One was a quote from the former mayor of Pendleton, where Nelson was city manager for eight years: ``He has the ability to tell you to go to hell and make you look forward to the trip.'' Nelson wasn't like his predecessors, Seals and Gary Pokorny, both in style and in presence, Vars said. Seals and Pokorny were physically big and more apt to pace a room like a stand-up comedian working a crowd. At 5-foot-8, 180 pounds, the quiet Nelson won over Corvallis residents and councilors. ``Jon is self-effacing and quiet for a good reason,'' Vars said. ``A city manager should not get out in front. They are hired by the council to manage the city organization consistent with council goals. ``If the manager is regarded by the public as getting involved then the manager becomes the lightning rod for city government rather than the City Council and mayor. We're much better off if people are complaining about policy and dumb votes by the council rather than that the guy doesn't know how to manage.'' Vars said Nelson fits the mold of city managers who don't seek public attention and who thrive on oiling the city's gears. ``You want the manager to handle the day-to-day stuff so that it's not really observed,'' Vars said. ``You want the headlines in the newspaper to focus on `Should we close a street downtown?' That's a real policy matter that ought to be the driving attention of citizens.'' Nelson's roots Nelson, 40, was born to a middle-class family in South Dakota. His mother was a school teacher, and his father sold farm equipment. He has been married to his wife, Priscilla, for 13 years. They have three children: Sam, 9, Katie, 7, and Caleb, 3. He gained the foundation for his city manager skills at Moorhead State University in Moorhead, Minn., and at graduate school in Missoula, Mont. He went on to earn a master's degree in public administration at the University of Montana. He dabbled in business, law and political science along the way. And he spent eight years managing the city of Pendleton, drawing admiration and virtually no critics. In Corvallis, he collects $81,000 a year to oversee a $75 million budget, supervise 380 employees, and, in general, to ensure the city is listening to its citizens. ``They don't frankly need to know what I do,'' Nelson said during an interview in his office, where books are stacked neatly in shelves. ``They need to be concerned about the services in the city.'' To clarify, he added: ``I'm not paid to be all-knowiGov Otter and Art Lee
My name is Art Lee, I was born on a farm and raised in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. And I came here in 1966 to farm with my wife’s family Freda, she’s been my number one helper all through my years of farming and raising three children. Galen the oldest is now part of the farming operation; he’s married and has some children, my grandchildren. And Romona our oldest child still lives on part of the home farm, she’s my help in the summer time, swathing and hauling manure my two favorite jobs when she is not teaching, she’s the director of all of special Ed for the Payette school district and is responsible for a number of people in her employment. And she has been a very strong asset to me and to the farm. The youngest daughter, Lenora is married to a veterinarian and they live in Castleford, Idaho. He works at the Buhl vet clinic and is part owner of that clinic at this time and they have two wonderful boys it’s a pleasure to them and a pleasure to me to come visit on the farm. Its great to have two grandsons that are willing to get up sometimes earlier than me in the morning. At five or six in the morning they are up and ready to go in the feed truck and help me feed the cattle, this is one of my great pleasures at this time I was probably halfway through my senior year in high school and some of my teachers started encouraging me to go to college because no one in my family had attended college. So it was kind of a new concept and although I was high in my class I wasn’t at the top student but agriculture was always my life, but I also had ability with numbers. The classes I enjoyed most were the ones working with numbers so that’s what I looked at agriculture engineering as a career to study at the University of Idaho. This was a great experience and it led me to Hyster Company in Portland, Oregon were I spent four wonderful years as a design engineer in a vast engineering department which was making products and protocols for different types of equipment to be developed. But at that point of time in my life my father in law who lived in New Plymouth came to Hyster Company and his was in Africa away from the farm and he realized that he needed more help at the farm so he offered me the opportunity to come to Idaho and New Plymouth and work into their operation. So it was an opportunity that may not come again and being from a very small farm in North Idaho, to have that opportunity to come back to a productive farm, that’s where I headed back to agriculture in New Plymouth. We got involved in 4-H, I was involved in the FFA program when I was in High School and then we got involved in the 4-H program even when we were living in Portland, Oregon. When we came to Idaho we had the opportunity to become 4-H leaders soon after we moved to Idaho we continued to do that, not only for our benefit, because our kids were not old enough to be in 4-h at that time but working with the other kids in the community because I knew what FFA did for me and 4-H was an avenue I could persue to help other children in that direction. We worked through that 4-H program, worked with dairy heiffer replacement programs and continued to do so, and were willing to lend calves from our operations, if that’s what they needed to help them have a successful 4-H program. I agree with a lot of other people, that raising children on a farm is worthwhile. I knew the personnel director at Hyster company when I worked there and he told me one time when we were visiting, he said that if he is hiring someone in the engineer department or accounting or in the shop if he gets down to a choice if one has an ag background their records show that they are a better employee and stay longer on the job than the other employee. So this really left an impression on me, that there’s a benefit to growing up on a farm, I’ve maintained that philosophy, but also the opportunity to work on a farm, to be your own boss and work for yourself and have some input, also to have ideas. Land is very valuable to farmers; I don’t know if people really understand that, we look at land as something that we can continue to use, we want to leave in better shape for the next generation than it is now. We have always worked on the farm to improve the land, whether its leveling or nutrient management plans to keep the fertility up so that it continues to produce more, same as you increase your livestock production with your cattle, you try to improve the cattle for better production. Of course, I did mention the FFA program; they have a great chapter there in Bonners Ferry, happened to have the privilege to be the chairman of our FFA chapter. In college I was involved with the student agricultural society and also, in my later, I was involved in the dairy honorary society Or the Ag honorary society. For years I was in Portland at Hyster, I did sign up for toastmasters, I did a year or two in Toastmasters club. After we moved back to Idaho probably the first involvement I had was
