Plato shears have a thin profile designed for those hard-to-reach areas in electronic assembly. Assemblers love the effortless shearing action, light weight, and saftey for electronics lead and wire cutting. Platoshears use the shear cutting method, which requires 50% less operator effort and extends cutting life because they shear rather than pinch. Handles are cushioned for day long comfort, and automatically spring back to their original position after each use.
Flush cuts component leads as large as 18 AWG copper wire
