Will It Cut 5/32 stainless?

Asked by Windguy April 29, 2018

Answers

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).

What size steel cable will these cut?

Up to 1/4" (.250)

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.

Item was fulfilled and shipped free to my home within a few days. Only have tried it on bicycle cable, but will be soon using on 3/16" steel cable. Worked fine on the bicycle brake cable. Will see if it passes the test on the 3/16" cable
