Care &
Maintenance
A little maintenance goes a long way in extending the life of your
cutters and pliers.
Put a drop of oil in the joint periodically to keep it working freely
Just like on a saw blade, it is good practice to put Bur-Life®
on your cutters to reduce drag
Over time, material builds up on cutting blades; using a Sunshine®
Cloth to clean the blades from time to time helps keep the
cutters sharp
Use a pliers rack to safely store your pliers and cutters
SWANSTROM TAKES ERGONOMICS SERIOUSLY!
Swanstrom micro pliers
Extremely
durable and ergonomically designed, Soft-Touch™ handles are
extra-long, wide, textured and padded. This design distributes pressure
across the hand, relieving the carpal tunnel pocket in the palm.
Anti-glare black finish reduces eye fatigue and
improves visibility while reducing corrosion.
Knurled, adjustable jaw-stop
prevents over-extension of
the tool and allows you to
achieve the same pressure
again and again.
Swanstrom micro pliers and cutters are
ergonomically designed for smaller hands
and/or close, intricate tasks.
