  17. 17. Super-Flush Flush Bevel This rating refers to nonferrous materials (those containing no iron) and applies from the center of the blade edge to the joint (the recommended cutting surface). Cutting capacity diminishes significantly beyond this area. Soft metals include yellow gold, silver, brass and copper; hard metals include white gold, nickel, platinum and steel. Use cutters only at or below their maximum cutting capacity to prevent damage. visible). This fine control is especially useful for production work. ideal cutting surface THE LANGUAGE OF PLIERS & CUTTERS —anatomy Pliers • Round-nose: Both jaws are round, tapering from the pivot to the tip. Used to make loops, jump rings, clasps, coils and curved bends. • Chain-nose: Both jaws are semi-round with flat interior surfaces, tapering to a point from the pivot to the tip. Use to open and close jump rings, for flat crimping and to make angled bends. • Flat-nose: Both jaws are flat. Use for wider, broader bends in wire, metal-forming, straightening and flattening out metal, making angled bends in metal and holding components. • Stone-setting: Jaws are specially shaped— often grooved, angled or notched—to access prongs. Use to move prongs securely into place against the stone or away from the stone for removal. • Forming: Jaws have a variety of configurations. Use to bend, shape or form wire or strip, and to create ring shanks, opposing curves (waves or corrugation), angles and patterns. —type & function Cutters • Side cutters: Jaws are pointed and angled almost parallel to the handles. Use to cut sheet or wire in restricted areas. Types include: Super-flush—Require the least pressure to create a cut (for finer edges, less finishing) and leave very little pinch visible on the cut ends. Flush—Require somewhat more pressure to make a cut than super-flush cutters. Though the pinch is more noticeable, it is still minimal. Bevel—The most durable of the flush cutters; require more pressure than flush cutters and leave a pronounced pinch on the wire ends. • Compound cutters: Designed with two joints to maximize hand power at the cutting edge. Use for maximum power on heavy material such as thick-gauge wires and sprues. • End cutters: Blades are perpendicular to the handles and provide more cutting leverage. Use to make sharp, clean cuts close to the surface on wire and sprues. • Oblique cutters: These end cutters feature a head angled to allow better reach and visibility in hard-to-reach areas. These cutters must be used on softer metals. • Shears/scissors: Jaws are pointed with offset blades that pass one another rather than meet directly as the cut is made. Use for sheet, soft wire and beading cord or string. Composition • High-carbon, high-chrome alloy steel: Ball-bearing quality steel is the highest quality tool steel and produces the longest-lasting pliers and cutters. Can be hardened up to 65 HRC; the jaws will not be nicked with normal use and will keep their shape and finish. • Hardened tool steel: A very hard, strong material for pliers and cutters; jaws will not be nicked with normal use and tend to keep their shape. Clean with Cosmoline®; avoid contact with moisture. • Stainless steel (pliers): Tough metal gives a reasonable life and is a good value; rust-resistant; jaws may require maintenance with use. Jaw Length Pliers and cutters produce less force as the distance from the pivot point increases. Short jaws offer more strength at the tips but have a limited reach. Long jaws have a longer reach but less strength at the tips and are more easily damaged. Handles When pliers are gripped in your hand, 42 muscles are at work as you move and operate the tool. The better the tool conforms to the shape of your hand (ergonomics), the more comfortable and effective the tool, and the less risk of repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Handle coverings enhance your grip and increase comfort. Foam handles are heated and positioned, then shrink to fit as they cool. Coated handles are dipped into liquid plastic and cured. Finish • Anti-glare: A dark, matte finish prevents eye strain caused by reflective glare and increases visibility of the workpiece. • Smooth: A smooth finish helps reduce the risk of marring delicate pieces but can present a somewhat insecure grip. • Textured: A textured finish offers an improved grip on workpieces but can mar soft or delicate metals. Adjustable Jaw-Stop A jaw-stop prevents over-extension of the tool, which can distort the jaw shape or damage the cutting edge and stress the pivot joint. On pliers, the jaw-stop allows you to achieve the same pressure repeatedly; on cutters, the stop prevents jaws from colliding (a thread of light will be Cutting Capacity— Maximum Ratings Construction • Forged: Forged from a rod of tool steel, pliers are work-hardened as the metal is compressed and shaped. Pliers are then tempered to prevent brittleness; the best combination of strength and durability. • Cast: Formed in a mold from molten metal, pliers are not subject to work-hardening; the finished tool is not tempered. • Stamped: Cut from a sheet of metal, pliers are serviceable but provide the least strength, durability and ergonomic comfort. Joint • Box: One half of the pliers joint surrounds the other half, and the pivot is hidden within. This joint holds alignment far longer than a lap joint but limits the pliers to open only as far as the box size. • Lap: One half of the pliers joint overlaps the other, and a pivot (or screw) is set through both halves. • Parallel (pliers): Compound pivots keep the pliers tips parallel to each other as they open and close, creating even pressure along the entire jaw. 18 riogrande.com 800.545.6566 pliers&cutters pliers & cutters _049DS_Pliers 1 (B-O) 18-31.indd 18 11/22/13 11:56 AM
  18. 18. For five generations, Swanstrom has been manufacturing high-quality tools, first in Duluth, Minnesota and now at their state-of-the-art facility in Superior, Wisconsin. Eddie Bell, one of Rio Grande's directors, spotted Swanstrom tools at an electronics trade show in the late '80s. Recognizing their quality craftmanship, he made the trip to Wisconsin to inquire about bringing Swanstrom tools to the jewelry industry. There Eddie and Jack Swanstrom forged a partnership between the two companies that has lasted more than 20 years (and brought jewelers many of their favorite tools!). Today, a handful of Swanstrom employees, led by tool-making maverick Tim Sheriff, is devoted solely to crafting Rio's exclusive line of Swanstrom jewelry-making tools. From specialty pliers and cutters to the beloved disc cutters, our Swanstrom products are designed by jewelers for jewelers. With normal use, Swanstrom tools are virtually unbreakable. They use the finest materials available to create the most durable tools you can buy. Forged and machine-hardened high-carbon, high-chrome alloy steel with an anti-glare finish, and Soft-Touch™ ergonomic handles make Swanstrom pliers and cutters a superior choice for your bench. Swanstrom products are among our bestselling tools because each and every one is precision-made, efficient and effective, and comfortable to use. They simply make jewelers' lives easier.

  19. 19. 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.

As a result, these high- performance pliers allow you to make highly accurate, super-flush cuts at angles up to 90°. Super-sharp cutters make cleaner cuts with less force, lessening the resulting spike on the end of the wire and reducing stress and strain on the user’s hands. The innovative reverse-angle sprue cutters (item E) have beveled jaws and a flush side cutter to help you get close to the casting, reducing your finishing and polishing time. Please Note: Not for use with memory wire or Beadalon®; for this purpose see the heavy-duty bevel cutters on page 32. Made in the USA. Get in very close to your pieces.

Flush cutters require somewhat more pressure to make a cut than super-flush cutters. Though the pinch is more noticeable, it is still minimal. End-cutters, with blades perpendicular to the handles, provide more cutting leverage. Use them to make sharp, clean cuts close to the surface on wire and sprues. • Welded double-leaf spring • Cushioned grips for all-day comfort • Lap joint Made in the USA. Use your cutters only at or below their maximum cutting capacity to prevent damage. Description Overall Length Jaw/Cutter Length Item # 1-2 each 3-5 each A.
