What cutters are good for half hard wire up to 18 gauge wire?


My absolute favorite wire cutters are the Xuron Maxi-Shear flush cutters, which Wire-Sculpture will have in stock soon!

    Like Dale, I love the Xuron cutters as well. A word of warning people in regards to cutters. Please, if you work in mixed wire, such as brass, copper or aluminum, DO NOT USE your good cutters on these metals. Keep a seperate cheaper pair for cutting these base metals. They will ruin a good pair of cutters in a heart beat by putting nicks, etc., in the blades. I learned the hard way on this and ruined a good pair of cutters cutting round copper wire with them. So invest in a cheaper pair to use for these base metals.
