These are simple flush cutters from Excelite that give you a way to cut leads very cleanly and close to the solder joint. Diagonal cutters are good, but if you really need to get up close and personal, flush cutters are the way to go! Each pair of these cutters has a 3/4in jaw length and are 5in in overall length. This tool flush cuts soft wire up to 20 AWG (0.8mm) and is ESD safe.
Note: To make sure that these flush cutters ship safely, there has been an extra amount of grease applied to the center joint. Repeatedly opening and closing the cutters will help extend the length they open.
Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

The Flush Cutters allow me to get into tight spots to cut wires close to the board.
