NAB Sneak Peek: Platinum Tools Cuts the Rope
Handtool cuts steel cable, rope and more
Ever have the problem where the pair of dykes in the tool bag aren’t quite hefty enough to cut a wire or cable on the first go so you have to rotate them around and around to finally make a cut?
Platinum Tools feels it has a solution in its Wire Rope Cutter. Made from carbon tool steel, it has jaw length: 0.5 inches (12.7 mm) and a jaw thickness: 0.25 inches (6.35 mm).
Platinum Tools Inc. President and General Manager Lee Sachs said, “Our new Wire Rope Cutter has been designed to cut through the toughest wire rope and cable. … Lightweight yet durable, it will cut 3 mm steel cable and rope, and up to 6.5 mm soft cabling without unwinding the wire rope.”
He added, “It’s also equipped with a crimping cavity for looping and crimping steel cables and wire rope, complete with rust-resistant black oxide finish and comfort grip TPR.”
