Why I have not been bought this one earlier. Perfect perfect. Cutting soldering pieces has never been so easy. As you know, when you cut them with regular tools, they always jump somewhere:)

This solder cutting pliers is invaluable. It saves you form so much work compared using the normal big cutter when preparing pallitions. Thanks a lot.

far better than using snips

They do their job well. Don't to do two cuts in one. You will understand what I mean if you cut into the middle of a strip of solder.

great cutting pliers they do what it says on the tin . Cuts tiny pieces and drops down under the pliers rather than bits flying across the room. Makes cutting solder so much quicker and easier.

15 Jan 2016 - by Candy Matterson


I bought this without looking at a review and have to agree they dont work. The solder gets stuck after cutting and so it is not a time saver, in fact my carefully set up solder job got biffed as I stuggled to get the solder out.. I tried filing the at the back of the tool with a diamond needle file to allow the pallion to fall through which still didnt work and so felt unable to return it. I would pay more for one that actually did what it claimed to do.

Cooksongold replies : Dear Mrs Matterson, Thank you for your review, your feedback is really important to us. I am sorry to hear you are happy with the Solder Cutting Pliers you have received. I will pass your comments on to our Supplier. Kind Regards, Emma

A poor buy

The solder gets so stuck in the throat of these cutters it is impossible to get out. I sent the first pair back, the replacement pair is no better. I can't cut solder pieces any small than I can with snips.

Cooksongold replies : Dear Mrs Foster, Thank you for your review, your feedback is really important to us. I am sorry to hear you are not happy with the Solder Cutting Pliers. We are happy to take the item back under our Returns Guarantee. Kind Regards, Emma

I don't get how these work but they are brilliant. If you haven't got any, you need some in your life! Very easy to use and you can get tiny pallions from using them!

Really useful

These pliers are my favourite find. They are so much easier to use than snips. More controllable too. Well worth the money.
