Coil Cutting Plier PLR-819.00

by Kate Richbourg

Do you cut your own jump rings? Why not start. With today’s tool you can easily cut a perfect jump ring from a wire coil. Take a look!

Kate Says:



This unique tool holds wire coils so that they can be efficiently cut into jump rings. Made of stainless steel, the Coil Cutting Pliers feature a jaw which firmly but gently grasps coils ranging from 4.50 to 9.0 mm (outside diameter). The jaws feature slits that allow the user, with a jewelers saw and a 2/0 saw blade, to quickly cut multiple jump rings. Pliers are box-jointed, with PVC comfort grips. Length 7″ (175mm).
