Good little cutter – 5-inch Electrical Cutter Reviews

posted by Shunra1 on 04/30/2013 Certified Owner

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
Other:
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.
