The Plato 170 Plato shear cutter offers precise, reliable cutting action at an economical price. Thin profile handle and lightweight design are ideal for smaller hands. A Plato shear cutter has a thin profile designed for those hard to reach areas in electronic assembly. Assemblers love the effortless shearing action, comfort, lightweight and safety for electronics lead and wire cutting.
