WTF!
You don't know how to use side cutters?
Vapers are increasingly becoming a bunch of fragile ladies!!!
This is embarrassing.

I use the plato style cutters. I know a piece of wire might go flying.
Before that, it was nail clippers. Same outcome.
I also don't wear nappies all day long, although I know at some stage I may need to go to the toilet.

FFS! Man up!

What's the definition of "man up"? You seem to know better ..

Really? It needs an explanation?
I guess it's the opposite of screaming and jumping on a chair when you see a mouse.

OH. Ok. I did not know that happened.
And I was not referring to a faulty tool.
I was referring to stray wire.
In which case I apologize Andy.
A faulty tool is something to rightfully avoid.

No offense taken bro.

Well, for anyone who has never used a cutter like this, would be good to follow the instructions. Even if this thing comes without instructions/warnings, wear some eye glasses while using it. Wouldn't harm :D

The reason why I say so: https://www.fasttech.com/forums/1243300/t/1258071/ft-attention-please

That's why I suggested the cutters I used in electronics. They cut and usually hold the wire. Wire does not shoot out.
Also Hardened SS will not snap off.

FYI. I bought a pair of plato cutters of eGay, for cheaper than here.
I used them at one stage to cut through the hinges on my old VTR case.
They didn't break.
I still use them for cutting wire.

Does'nt matter what actually flew off in the wrong direction.
Enough pressure was applied by the user to break it.

But, it must be the tool that was faulty.
For not being sharp and solid enough for what the user tried to cut.

In USA and Canada they have to put warnings on cutters packaging, warning that this can happen.
You can not have a tool that will have a long lasting cutting edge and not be fairly easy to break upon impacts.

I'm over 60 and although my eyes aren't super bad, I always wear magnifying eyeglasses when working with coils and/or liquids for multiple reasons. One of which is eye protection.

No matter the cutters put your spare hand over the cut.


Or just wear your reading glasses, which is pretty self-explanatory for a farsighted old man like me.
