I been using a pair of these in the shop for a few years to cut soft wire, lead pieces, lead tail weights, all kinds of stuff.
I do not cut stainless with these and don't recommend these for this.
Choppers will nice and cleanly chomp through just about anything you put in it's jaws.
They will cut clean through a 3/8 lead tail weight to make it smaller in size, they will cut a belly weight into pieces,
they'll cut pencil lead cleanly, they cut plastic pieces cleanly, they cut rubber, wood dowels, model parts,
they'll cut copper wire very nicely, they'll cut your fingers off too so be careful...
Been a great tool to have around, so I decided to add these to the site.
Choppers have an integral tool lock that prevents them from opening for safety. Keep away from children.
NO RETURNS ON TOOLS. Why? Because someone tried to cut hard stainless with a pair and ruined them, then returned to me expecting a refund. ONE BAD APPLE RUINS IT FOR ALL.
