Cut with a laser, the jaws on these Italtec tapered-head flush cutters feature sharp, precision edges that provide crisp, repeatable cuts; minimal; the tapered head shape provides improved access to fine details or close work areas. Flush cutters require somewhat more pressure to make a cut than super- or semi-flush cutters. Though more noticeable than that left by the super- or semi-flush, the pinch is still minimal. Cutters with a tapered head provide better reach into tight areas, but are not quite as strong as rounder heads; protect the tips against damage by cutting at the center of the jaw. The jaws are made of C70 steel hardened to 62HRC; the jaws will not be nicked with normal use and tend to keep their shape. Clean with Cosmoline® or a similar protectant; avoid contact with moisture.
• These cutters have a lap joint; one half of the joint overlaps the other, and a screw is set through both halves, allowing the joint to be adjusted as needed.
• The double-leaf spring consists of flat, tempered metal tabs attached to the inside of each tool handle, positioned to meet and hold the handles apart until they are squeezed closed. This spring delivers a fast, strong rebound for improved productivity.
• The ergonomic handles provide a comfortable grip while reducing hand fatigue and allowing you to work longer. All Italtec tool handles are made from Polyemi™ and are latex-free.
• Not for use with memory wire or Beadalon® or for cutting sprues; take care to avoid using these cutters beyond their maximum capacity.
