    This review is from: Xuron 170-II Micro-Shear Flush Cutter (Tools & Hardware)

    I did not pay attention to this product description:

    “Capacity: 18 AWG”

    That means it should not be used to cut thicker than 18 gauge wires. I however cut 16 AWG many times (no problems) and then attempted to cut a 20+ bundle of 16 gauge wires at once. One of the two shears snapped off.

    Xuron sent me a replacement for free. Feeling guilty that I cost them money due to my irresponsibility, I decided to buy another Shear cutter (an LX model, which is stamped out of thicker metal and is heat-treated to a higher hardness. It’s designed to cut 16 AWG wires). Very happy with their products and service.

    The LX model is physically the same size as this 170-II. The LX weighs 54 grams and the 170-II weighs 49 grams. I can’t feel the weight difference in my hand. I’d probably recommend the LX as it costs less than three bucks extra.

    I keep it in my guitar case. It works perfect for clipping guitar strings after re-stringing.
