Make sure that your electronic cutters are of good quality It is important to know that your electronics cutters are of high quality and capable of cutting through any materials that you might want to apply them to.
Wire cutters with jaws that apply uneven pressure with kink the wire rather than cutting it On some models of electronics cutters the jaws of the tool do not meet precisely, which can lead to thin wires simply being ‘kinked’ rather than cut.
The jaws of an electronic cutter should taper towards the end, leaving a thin triangle of visible light between the jaws You should be able to tell if the jaws meet up properly by holding the tool up to the light. The jaws should taper towards each other and meet at the tip, leaving a thin triangle of visible light.
You can use a razor blade to see if a pair of wire cutters will cut a thin wire There is a useful trick for testing electronics cutters before buying them. Simply take a razor blade and grip it lightly between the jaws of the tool.
If the razor blade is straight, the cutters will cut thin wires If the razor blade stands up straight, the jaws are applying pressure in the same place on both sides of the blade. This means that the electronics cutter will cut through even the thinnest wires rather than just kinking them.
If the razor blade is not straight, the wire cutter will not cut thin wires If the razor blade snaps to one side, the jaws are applying pressure in different places, which means that the electronics cutter is likely to kink small wires rather than cutting them.
