Paolo at RS Components sent me over this set of SMT cutters and pliers to play with and review.
I’m not going to write much here, as it’s a video review, but the cutters are sharp and cut very nicely. If you work on stripboard or circuit boards, having a good set of cutters will make life easier for you. See them in action in the video. I should add that the close-up shots in this video were done with my RasPiCamcorder 2.
“Hello, this is Alex Eames from RS-tools.tv” ;-)
Interesting video, but the price at the end was a bit surprising, clearly aimed at professionals rather than hobbyists.
Well a good pair of snippers will cost you about £20. They are a bit expensive, but they’re very nice and really useful for some of the stuff I’ve been doing recently. They are aimed at professionals and enthusiastic hobbyists.
