  • Good little cutter

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Good price, angled tip, able to cut wire and component leads flush with the surface, insulated handles, spring assisted opening of the tool, feels good in the hand

    Cons:

    Doesn't lock closed, will get damaged if used on hard or thick materials

    OtherThoughts:

    Good tool for the money, will work for light cutting jobs but cutting hard materials will damage it (it is probably less the 58-60 HRC advertised), the angles tip makes this tool great for snipping the component leads after soldering the component to the PCB. For that price, if it gets damaged, you can just get another one..

    Bottomline:

    Good cheap cutter, recommended.
