INSTRUCTIONS ON PROPER USE:
TO GET THE OPTIMAL RESULTS, THE PROPER WORKING TECHNIQUE IT'S VERY IMPORTANT!!!
Note the down pressure of left thumb to hold the upper jaw on the position and offer counter force when the cutting operation is in process.
The lower jaw is gliding at the edge of the fingerboard, the cut is effected at very fingerboards edge, so there is very little to file on the frets, just the bevel…
The SUMMIT cutting pliers are designed and made only for cutting fret wires included Stainless Steel, any other wire or Stainless Steel material can damage and blunt the plier's jaws. So please use them as intended.
Improper use of pliers will result in a warranty invalidation. See demo:
