Is there a reasonably-priced source of ready-made soft-jaw pliers (or pipe
wrenches) ??  Maybe aluminum or brass jaws, maybe something like Delrin or
regular Nylon ??  Wrapping tape around things is unsatisfactory in most cases,
and making a soft tool every time is a pain.  Dipping regular pliers in that
plastic-handle dipping stuff sort of works, but I'd really like a few sizes of
good, tough, soft-jawed pliers that can't tear up chrome plumbing fittings and
the like.  So much kitchen and bath stuff is plated plastic nowadays, with
crappy Chinese threads, making it even worse.

Thanks !
