I just bought these Italian flush cutters. This pair cuts up to 12 AWG copper so I'm confident they will be very suitable for handrail or ladder brass up to 1.6mm without negative issues.
I think this is the cheapest delivered price 14.55

Hi T33, are these cutters that leave a nice cut edge and do you know if they are the same as used for cutting model railway track?  Sounds like a good price.  Thanks for the heads up.
regards Roy

Hi Roy
They are made for cutting wires flush on circuit boards so unlikely they will cope with rail lines and rated at 2mm diameter copper

Those Italian nippers may be OK for a pedicure set  {-), but of little use in model industry....

The German KNIPEX 68-200....do a mans job  <*< in wire tying & cutting steel tie wire for reinforcement/fixing......[prior to concreting]

@ about the same price  .....there is no question.......

My pair of some 20+ years have absolutely unmarked clenching jaw blades used a 'million' times for up to 1/8" diameter ....but only for brass stock.....

Yes I have pincers but they do not cut flush
Flush cutting means just that Derek


This is flush

Goodness T33cno....

The German KNIPEX 68-200 are 'metal Cutters', not 'carpenters Pincers'......there is a clear difference in the design and function of the tool

Horses for courses......& these are the best I have found.....

However after 50 years in this craft...have never seen a nipper set to cut as cleanly and as sharply or 'flush' as you show %)..........

No that has been filed but the purpose is to reduce this to a mere sanding  :-))

We like Spanish Brandy but have not gone to europe this year. For anyone interested I get 6 one litre bottles of Soberano Solera delivered to my door by UPS from Alicante. My order tonight was coppers over 70 total.
From personal experience the packaging is excellent and communication about delivery. This is my third order  :-))

I laughed, then checked the translation  %)......the 4th extract with una soberana....seems appropriate  O0
