      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?

          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.

                            Expensive but it is USA made and top quality. It is compact , versatile and makes clean, sharp cuts. Few if any burrs. More than willing to pay up wish HD carried more US products in their store.

                            Clean Cuts!
                            This tool was bought specifically to cut 3/16 wire rope, both steel and stainless steel. The 3/16 diameter was definitely at the upper limit of the tool's capability and required quite a bit of force, but the cuts were clean and even (I wrapped the cable with electrical tape on either side of the cut). Tool will have no problem cutting smaller diameter cables.
