Description: While our small diagonal cutters are great for hobby use, sometimes you need something with a little more bite. These electronic snippers are great for cutting wires and component leads. They have a cushioned handle which makes them much more comfortable to use. These snippers can be used are wire cutters if the need be, and are great if you’re looking for something a little better than hobby grade.

After struggling with more inexpensive diagonal cutters that tend to wear out or develop notches alarmingly rapidly, I purchased this pair hoping to have a more reliable tool. Having owned these diagonals for a few years now, I can testify as to their quality - comfortable to use, quite strong, and largely impervious to dings and dull ends. I removed the angle adjuster as I found it got in the way when making quick cuts (i.e. removing motors trailing a fine wisp of smoke from your fighting robot two minutes before the next match), but overall an excellent choice, and like any tool well worth the extra cash.
