The must have tool on your workbench. 

These will give you a no mess flush cut on plastic sprue gates up to about 1-1.5mm. Anything larger is best cut with a razor saw or larger flush cutting side cutters.

I bought a pair back at AMRM Liverpool around 2015, used more often than most,they are still as sharp and flush today.

  • These are for plastic kits only. I recommend cutting sprue gates no larger than about 1-1.5mm in diameter. Anything large may damage the cutter.
