Makes a perfect eyelet set - easy to use, simple, splays the eyelet perfectly. The throat of the plier set will allow me to set eyelets at 1/4 inch, and 1/2 inch, in from the edge. I can set at 3/4 inch, but I have to curl the fabric/leather edge a bit. It could probably set at 1 inch, if the fabric were flexible enough to curl back on itself. I'm still using a hammer and set for the eyelets in the center of my work (about 7 inches in from the edge). I added a padded layer for the top of the eyelet set so the painted eyelets are unmarred, other than that, no changes. There is a tiny black pin that comes in the pliers to keep them closed, I've kept that so I can store the tool in its original plastic, if you loose it, just use a paperclip.
