Pliers I use these: http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...m_ite=handtool

Works flawless and the prices is reasonable as well.

I bought a press (~$60) at Lowe's and use the carbon drill bits.

Just letting you know that I have never ever used a jig to saftey wire. There are some technique's that I have learned over the years that help make it easy. Also try using a cobalt Center Drill #1 to start the hole. It helps start the drill and puts a nice chamfer on the hole for a clean look. I also have an advantage of putting holes in things is my job.

Also look into very small vice's that have a v cut into them to hold round parts. Also they make vee blocks that have a clamp to hold round parts. Look at McMaster Carr.
