No matter, if you just do the soldering works occasionally or regularly; it will be hard to avoid the part of cutting the wires. That is when high-grade wire cutter can save the day.
This small but handy tool is capable of slicing any wires to the preferred number of pieces in mere seconds. However, many cheap cutting tools are only worth skipping. I added this review with one clear purpose – to help everyone who wants to invest into a top-notch, durable instrument.
The rating of these cutting instruments gives the unbiased opinion on the best appliances in this narrow niche. I assure you that any of the offered tools will cut more than the thickest wires and go easily through hardware clothes, wire ties, welded fences and finish nails.
The best wire cutters for any maintenance and electrician jobs:
- Micro is very soft, with the “dolphin style”;
- IRWIN VISE-GRIP has a curved jaw and classic trigger I like so much;
- Klein Tools 11055 is very durable, has holes for looping;
Other U.S. and foreign brands of cutting tools for wires that I can strongly recommend: IGAN, Hakko, BOENFU, Channellock, Flush, Klein Tools, and KAHIOE.
In the light of the above-mentioned criteria, I would like to say that even the best instruments shouldn’t cost more than $20.
