Those "Plumbing pliers" look like they might do much of what I want. 
Certainly they should work for small chromed or aluminum, etc. parts.  Maybe 
my shower massage will finally stop spraying at its connections ;-)

I'd still like a set of aluminum or brass jaws too - maybe a soft-jawed pipe 
wrench.  Right now I'm rebuilding some Girling Luvax shock absorbers and 
they have large straight-knurled caps on each end.  I'm going to have to 
bore a hole in some aluminum and then split it into two halves to make a 
tool to remove those caps without marking them.
