1 Series Adjustable-Jaw Cut Nippers

  1X-5 1/2 Cut Nipper

Special design provides powerful leverage for efficient and clean cutting. Especially recommended for all applications involving wire cutting. These tools can be adjusted for wider jaw openings to easily cut tile and mosaics.

  • Heat-treated steel frames for strength
  • Red vinyl coated handles for a firm, comfortable grip
  • Jaws can be detached and replaced, or resharpened. Jaws should be ground in pairs and referenced from the serrations.
  • Jaws can be adjusted on the frames. Each jaw has an allowance of about 1/4" (6.4mm) to cut tile or to adjust after resharpening.
  • Stud and stop screw on the handle can be adjusted for proper jaw closure, thereby preventing damage from excess pressure on the jaws
  • A flat safety spring below the cutting edges of the jaws forms a yielding seat for the end of the wire to press against while being cut.
