Plato Shear Cutter & Soldering Tools

Plato Shear Cutter & Soldering Tools

A Plato Shear Cutter will give you the precision of a high-end soldering tool, but for the price of a disposable shear cutter. Assemblers love the ergonomic effortless design shearing action, comfort, and safety of a Plato lead cutter. 

Plato shear cutters use the shear cutting method, which requires 50% less operator effort and extends cutting life. The thin profile design is perfect for hard to reach areas in electronic assembly. Lead cutters handles are cushioned for comfort all day and automatically spring back to their original position after each use.
Shear cutters 175 and 175LX come with a lead catcher, which holds onto a trimmer lead until the shear is opened. this prevents leads from flying off, which can lead to eye injury or contaminate the assembly.
