Great for my DIY guitar pedal projects

I already own the StewMac string cutters and wanted something with a smaller jaws for my electronics projects. The comfortable grip and precision jaws make this a favorite tool on my bench.

I restore vintage amplifiers .. 1940, 50's and 60's.. I am disassembling them and rebuilding them and I am doing point to point wiring work 10 hours a day.. This is my go to cutter/ nipper.. Spring loaded ..so it opens after each cut and the handles are larger then most and soft and slip free..

I recently upgraded a custom Strat. All new pickups, switch, and jack. Rewiring was a clean job with these wire cutters making custom wiring connections all during the process. very sturdy, very sharp. Even clean cuts on small stranded wire. Very good quality cutters.

Comfortable to use, but soft jaws on the wire cutters

I used the Wire cutters in building the Stew Mac '59 Tweed amp kit and notched the jaws when cutting the thicker green pull back wire. I know these are not for cutting guitar strings, but thicker gauge wire seems to pose a problem for them too.

I have the 4 piece set of these tools (Wire cutter, Needle nose, String cutter, etc) and find them very comfortable to use even if the handles slip a bit with a lot of use. The String cutters have worked great with no wear on the jaws.

Sharp cutters

By

Verified Buyer


I bought these just to fill up a order and I was pleasantly surprised how good these cutters turned out to be. These are far better then the stamped throw away cutters I normally buy at around the same price. Their construction is similar to the high end $70 cutters, but without the fit and finish of the high end cutters. But at this price, I can afford to toss them when dull and buy another set, and another, and another, etc., etc.
Very sharp points and blades make a perfect flush cut on the smallest thinnest pickup wires.

Wire cutters do the job!

This a great wire cutter for doing small cuts but be sure they are for small cuts. I tried to use mine to cut some thick wire and one of the jaws broke. After contact StewMac, they generously replaced mine with a new pair which is something I realize they did not have to do. Thanks again, Stewmac!

More delicate than thought!

Broke one jaw-blade on my original one (probably my over-use on heavier items), so needed another as a replacement.

Super for guitar wiring

But DO NOT use them to cut strings. It dents the blade.
