Excellent snipper tool for building all sorts of jobs. Also works great for an all purpose household snip cutter.
The 170 is a Plato Wire Cutter and 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.
Handles are cushioned for day long comfort and automatically spring back to their original position after each use.
