Designed to cut the toughest round materials easier.
The patented Midwest Snips® compound leverage cable cutter is unique in design, function, and performance. Its jaws are hot drop-forged of high carbon steel for exceptional strength. Its blade inserts are manufactured of M2 alloy tool steel for the hardness and durability required to resist nicks when cutting hardened materials. Its by-pass cutting edges are precision milled. Functionally, this tradesman quality tool cuts the three most difficult to cut round diameter materials -- wire rope cable, spring hardened wire, and mild steel rod.
Cuts hardened round diameter materials up to 5/32ï¿½(4mm). Use in either hand. Compound leverage handle action. Hardened M2 alloy steel blade inserts resist nicks and chipping. Use to cut wire rope cable, spring hardened wire, and mild steel rod. US Patent 6088920
