I also bought a pair of the welding tool Channellocks since my last tool obsession post
I've gotten into GMAW (MIG) welding recently and given up on the old arc welder. The Channellocks 360 have provided another welcome addition to my Channellocks lineup. They are good for removing the nozzle, cleaning up the tip, cutting the wire, and other welding specific tasks.
One of the two that was sent to me is the E338 which is an upgrade to the 338.
With the 338s, though, they also made the handles longer on the e-series version. This allows for not only greater leverage, but also a greater reach inside electrical boxes, for example. As a result, the E338 is now in my electrical toolbox instead of the 338. Honestly, this extra length is probably worth the cost of replacement for people who are obsessed with getting the most out of their tools. And, if you're someone who has several Channellocks like me, you're probably one of those people.
The other plier they sent me from the e-series was the E318. It's basically an elongated needle nose plier.
*And just a side note, although Channellocks did send us the E338 and E318 for free, they in no way influenced my opinion of the tools, all opinions here are my own.
