The jaws of these Lindstrom flush cutters are pointed and angled almost parallel to the handles; they are ideal for cutting sheet and wire in restricted areas. Flush cutters require somewhat more pressure to make a cut than super- or semi-flush cutters, and leave a more noticeable—though still minimal—pinch at the cut wire end. The tapered head shape provides improved access to fine details or close work areas; protect the tips against damage by cutting at the center of the jaw. A dark, matte finish prevents eye strain caused by reflective glare and increases visibility of the workpiece.
• 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.
• With their exclusive Lindstrom BioSpring®, RX tools eliminate the effort in overcoming ordinary spring tension, which increases as you apply pressure. The adjustable, replaceable plastic spring controls and limits resistance as you apply pressure. To adjust the spring, simply open the tool, move the free end of the spring into the desired opening in the handle, and close the tool.
• The profile of the RX grip is slightly rounded and wide, creating an even, ergonomic distribution of surface pressure and excellent contact with your hand. The resin composite material of the grips helps dissipate static, and like all Lindstrom tool handles, is latex-free.
Ball-bearing quality, high-carbon/high-chrome alloy steel is the highest-quality tool steel and produces the longest-lasting cutters; these tools can be hardened up to 65 HRC. Forging offers the best combination of strength and durability; the jaws will not be nicked with normal use and keep their shape and finish well over time.
Lindstrom cutters are precision-crafted in Switzerland from a hardened, high-chromium steel alloy and precision-ground to exact specifications. Jaw edges are smoothly radiused to protect the workpiece; they meet perfectly along their entire length to ensure a clean and complete cut.
