Fred’s recent post reminded me of this: Pliers - Some Different Types
Some wire strippers include screw cutters in the jaw. I find these to be super useful, and I currently own some AWG-sized strippers that cut conventional-sized screws (I use a lot of 4-40 and 6-32), and I own some mm2-sized strippers that cut metric screws (the all-important M4 used in VESA monitor mounts, for instance!).
I realized recently, I don’t actually care about the stripper function! I have a better wire stripper (an old Stripax that just won’t quit), and I’m lugging around an extra pound of steel solely for the purpose of cutting screws.
Is there a better way? I could just cut off the stripper end of these tools to lighten them up, keeping only the screw cutters in the hub. I’d love a tool which does only the screw cutting, and combines all the sizes I care about into a single tool. (And hopefully leaves out the utterly-useless 5-40 notch.) Is there such a thing?
