Are we the highest paid skilled trade “because we are a jack of all trades and can jerry rig anything with no need for proper tools, parts, or material”? Or are we the highest paid because we are trained and use the proper tools for the task?

Knipex 10” Pliers Wrench Buy Here
Plier wrenches are great for bending and straightening metal (elevator floor vanes) and removing escalator steps due to the ratcheting action of plier wrenches. For escalators or repeated heavy use you will want the comfort grip handle plier wrenches, especially in greasy conditions because the comfort grips have more grip.

GEDORE 10” Pliers Wrench Buy Here
Video coming soon comparing the Gedore and Knipex plier wrenches on escalator steps and used to straighten floor vanes. The Gedore 10″ plier wrench jaws open a little wider than the Knipex 10″ plier wrenches if that is a factor to you.

*Don’t use those solder/heatshrink connectors because of breaks. Solder is not for movable wire, cars, aircraft, space shuttles etc. (elevator guys, would you use solid wire on a traveling cable?  Well that’s the same reason you don’t use solder on anything that moves or vibrates). Contrary to popular belief, a proper crimp is superior to solder.
