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!
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).

Our “Master Coiler” is the painless plier. It is developed to make loops and coils without nicking precious wire. Normal concave/convex pliers nick, but the “Master Coiler” allows one to hold the wire with the flat jaw while rotating the round jaw to form the perfect loop! Comfort grips, non-rust highly polished stainless steel jaws and standard step-jaw for consistent loops and coils. 5-3/4″ (145mm) long
Our deluxe coiling kit includes everything needed to make and cut coils for use in jewelry arts or as jump rings. This kit includes our Quick Coiler set with 8 standard coiling mandrels (sizes 1, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8mm) our coil holding pliers to securely hold the coil when cutting, and a quality 3″ saw frame and 1 dozen blades for cutting the coil into rings. Also included is a 2oz tube of Cut Lube for lubricating the saw blades for a cleaner, easier cut.
