Did you know that Xuron® Models 2193 and 2193F Hard Wire Cutters are the only tools you should use to cut memory wire, steel, or other hardened wire?
You’ll have disappointing results if you cut hard wire with any of our other flush cutters. It’ll also leave telltale dents in the blades and void their warranty.
Their blades are thicker than those of our other flush cutters, and they completely bypass each other. The end result is a clean break of the wire rather than it being squeezed to cut. Both the cut and cut-off pieces of wire will be nearly perfectly flat, requiring little to no post-cut cleanup.
Both models work equally well on round and flat memory wires. They are designed for use on different types of hardened wire, including stainless steel, spring, and music wire. The 2193 cuts hard wire up to .040” (1 mm) diameter, and the 2193F takes it one step further, cutting up to .064” (1.45 mm) diameter wire. Note: These models also work great when cutting brooch pinbacks.
So what’s the main difference between them? The 2193F has self-adjusting wire retaining clamps that hold both ends of the wire perpendicular to the jaws throughout the cut. This produces a square cut and reduces the possibility of wire pieces flying across the room.
