Clockwise from top left:
Strippers - a recent purchase. Cheap, feel cheap, but work well.
Big pliers - Wickes special. Good for big jobs or just weighting things down.
Needle-nose pliers - Good for bending loops in wire for turret soldering. Stolen from my pal Tom who's now bought a replacement so I'm keeping them.
Draper multi-snippers / strippers / benders - over-engineered and overpriced. I rarely use them.
Stripper / side cutters - crap for wire stripping and poorly made (this is the second set after one of the cutting blades sheared off the first one). I've not found a better pair of light duty side cutters though. Great for trimming components legs from PCBs when you want to get a really neat finish.
