great value – 5-inch Electrical Cutter Reviews

posted by octagonalman on 02/09/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Compact cutting instrument.
Excellent for hobby electronics use.
Well-balanced spring return doesn't require too much effort to squeeze, yet opens back up quite nicely.
Insulated handles (while one probably shouldn't be cutting live wires, it does mean that the operator's hands aren't touching bare cold metal).
Cons:
Central pivot point gives in a little at the maximum squeeze. Blades don't meet absolutely perfectly.
Other:
Gibberish on the back cover is a mild diversion.
Bottomline:
A worthwhile hand tool for a hobby user.
