Using our Pin Cutters

Tips for Using our Pin Cutters

These fine German-made cutters cutters are manufactured in chrome-vanadium steel. They are oil hardened and the cutting edges are separately induction hardened. They provide very accurate, burr-free cutting of the hard-temper stainless steel pins used in MicroMounts™, MicroMeshes™ and MicroTools™.

Because the edges of these cutters are extra-hard, they are also more brittle.
To get maximum tool life, please follow two simple rules:

1. Always cut with the steel pin perpendicular to the jaws.
2. Never wiggle the pin or cutters during cutting.

WARNING : Always wear safety glasses whenever using any pin cutters.
