Which wire cutting to use cutting tag off loop

Recommended Posts

I think there is a specific wire cutter for trimming the tag end after finishing a loop. Look at the photo, that’s a manufacturer’s end cut. I cannot get that close. Anyone know what that wire cutters name would be? Thank you for helping me out 76974C69-9527-4B83-BF68-A9456B4700BC.thumb.jpeg.7dfe7884f3ee073835a260a34d114f1b.jpeg

How about no cutter at all.  Get a good grip of your twisted eye with some small vise grips with the tag pointing out from the edge of the jaws.  If the tag is long enough just give it three for four bends as far as you can get and the wire will break off clean at the edge of the jaws. For short tags another set of pliers will be needed to bend the wire.

Cut wires will have a sharp stub, broken wires are much less sharp.  Been using this method for years and never cut the wire.
