Xuron Corp. of Saco, Maine, introduces an ergonomic wire cutter that features a bent handle which is designed to fit more comfortably in a user’s hand and comes in left- and right-hand versions. The Xuron 8500 BioShear Flush Cutter employs bypass cutting which produces a clean, square cut by using shear action, with only about half the effort required by conventional compression-type wire cutters. Designed with ergonomically bent handles, covered with non-slip soft Xuro-Rubber grips, this ergonomic wire cutter is available in left- and right-hand versions. Ideal for arthritis sufferers and aging workers, the Xuron 8500 BioShear Flush Cutter’s design helps keep the user’s knuckles in a straighter line to maintain optimum comfort while cutting. Well suited for cutting soft wire up to 18 AWG (1.0 mm) and plastics, applications for this wire cutter include electronics assembly, hobbies and crafts. The Xuron 8500 BioShear Flush Cutter sells for $17.25.
