In an industry where precision, reliability, and efficiency are paramount, having the right tools can make a significant difference. Xuron® Micro-Shear® flush cutters are a powerhouse that marries convenience and functionality to deliver unparalleled performance. These ergonomic hand tools are offered in over 100 models designed for special tasks ranging from cutting hard and soft wire to electronic leads, slippery aramid fibers, slitting PVC jacketing, and many other factory and field-proven applications.
The Xuron® model 2175 is a versatile, durable, and ergonomic flush cutter that is used by manufacturers in a variety of industries. This cutter is USA-made and provides an excellent value for the price. It is available in three different models: the standard 2175, the 2175F with a lead retainer that keeps cut pieces of wire from flying, and the 2175AS with ESD safe grips for protection against static discharge.
In the jewelry world, Xuron® tools are known for their orange handles. There are two tools in particular, the 410 Micro-Shear Flush Cutter® and the 2175 Maxi-Shear™ Flush Cutter. These two have been in the jeweler’s tool box for some time now and are highly regarded.
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 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.
