A commenter on a public modeling forum complained that the tools he was using were rusting and they had lost their keen edge as well as smooth action. Further discussion revealed that he lived in an the area that was very humid year round and that his workshop wasn’t well ventilated or air conditioned. This probably is the reason for corrosion on his tools, but it could have been easily avoided.
When I consider the questions I am most frequently asked, “how do you pronounce the company name?” is at the top of the list. Pretend the X is a Z and say it, Xuron!
In my lifetime as a scale modeler I’ve used just about every conceivable type of work space: A shelf in a spare bedroom closet, TV dinner tray, desk, dedicated cabinet, as well as large spacious workshops.
Whatever you call them, cable ties, tie wraps or zip ties, you want to cut them with a tool that will cut flush to the termination point and will leave a smooth cut surface.
Xuron Corp.’s Model 2275 Cable Tie Cutter offers an excellent solution for cutting smaller plastic and/or nylon ties (up to 7 mm wide) used to bundle wire, cords and multiple other uses.
