These Durston Professional Front-Flush End Cutters 115mm are manufactured with precision edges that provide seamless, repeatable cuts. The cutting blades are perpendicular to the handles, which produces more cutting leverage and closer access to flat surfaces.
These cutters are created with a lap joint, where one half of the joint overlaps the other with a screw set through both halves. This screw allows the joint to be adjusted as required.
The double-leaf spring consists of flat, tempered metal tabs attached to the inside of each of the tool handles, positioned to meet and hold the handles apart (and the jaws open) until they are squeezed closed, delivering a fast, strong rebound for enhanced productivity.
The ergonomic handles provide a comfortable grip, allowing you to work longer and reduce hand fatigue. Durston Front End Flush Cutters are created with poly handles for increased comfort.
Jaw Style: Front-Flush End Cutter Jaw Length: 12mm Handle Length: 89mm Overall Length/Dimensions: 115mm Maximum Cutting Capacity*: 0.8mm soft copper wire and jewelry metals including yellow gold, silver and platinum. Non-ferrous metals only. Avoid nickel based white gold alloys.
* PLEASE NOTE: Durston cutters are NOT guaranteed. Cutting limits are for soft copper wire only. Metal alloys commonly used for jewelry are much harder. All types of flush cutters are very delicate. Be especially careful when cutting with the tips. Use the middle of the cutting edge whenever possible.
If damage occurs to the tips we recommend that you grind the undamaged side down to match the damaged side and continue to use the cutters. Dents in the cutting surface are a clear indication that the hardness of the metal being cut is in excess of the limits of the cutters. Durston, and other brands of cutters, as they are commonly used in the jewelry industry should be considered consumable labor saving devices.
