These Plato Model 170 cutters are an excellent snipper tool for the electronic hobbyist or prototyper. They also work great as an all-purpose household snip cutter. The 170 has a thin profile designed for those hard-to-reach areas in electronic assembly.

Plato wire cutters use the shear cutting method which requires 50% less operator effort and extends cutting life because they shear rather than pinch. The handles are cushioned for all-day comfort and automatically spring back to their original position after each use.
