While the Model 2175 is ideal for general-purpose cutting, the Model 2175ET Extra Tapered, Low Profile Micro-Shear® Flush Cutter was explicitly designed to cut thin, soft plastic and small, soft wire (22 AWG / 0.64 mm). It’s based on the same blank as its parent 2175 but with the outside edges ground to an extra tapered head. Long, low-profile cutting blades easily reach confined spaces, making it especially useful for micro-electronics and plastic degating applications.

Both models have an overall length of 5.80 inches/148mm and a Rockwell Hardness of 54-56 Rc.

But in reality, for durability and strength, they’re made from .100” thick highly polished carbon steel. The Model LX cuts soft wire up to 16 AWG (1.3 mm), perfect for most electronics manufacturing, as well as small wire and cable work.

Xuron® 2193 Hard Wire Cutter

This large, full bypass shear is designed specifically for cutting music wire and other types of hardened wire. The cutting blades of the Model 2193 fully bypass, causing it to break the wire rather than squeeze it. Its shearing cut combined with high mechanical advantage makes cutting iron, hardened and tempered steel wire up to 0.40” (1mm) and soft wire up to 12 AWG (2mm) seem effortless. Tip: for best results, support both ends of the wire with your fingers while cutting.
