      Q:Will these cut closetmaid wire shelves?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes, they should cut closetmaid wire shelves. I bought mine to cut springs when I had to re-spring my sofa. My son had to make my cuts as my hands are not strong enough. But they made a nice clean cut.

          Q:Will It Cut 5/32 stainless?
          by|Apr 29, 2018

          Answer This Question

          A:  Yes. I purchased this to cut 1/4" steel cable on semi trailer door seals. Never had an issue. 5/32" = .156 dia. 1/4" is .250 this tool can cut up to 1/4" wire/cable. Steel has more carbon in it which makes it less brittle and harder than stainless (ie., harder to cut).

            A:  How we use this tool is to cut "wire rope" cables on trailers. The seals we have are very thick and nothing else will cut these like this tool will. So the answer is "YES", as long as you can get the cable inside the tools' jaws you should be fine. I am very impressed at the ease this tool cuts the rope seals we have. Hope this helps.

                        Quality looks decent, but I'd been seeing that these were made in USA, however at least now in 2023 they are made in China. I did not open the package, I'm going to return and find another set.

                        Worked great.
                        Cut 1/8" steel cable cleanly. One hand. Only moderate effort. Impressive tool.
