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.”
