I'm just bored, and I thought I would give out my website, just so you all would see what I do for a living...I'm not trying to sell anything, because my products are industrial....check it out if you want

Where were you when I had to cut 4/0 TEC cables with a hacksaw?
Nice tools, BTW. Your site needs more color pictures of the tools (electricians can't read y'know) ;-)

I agree with you Dave..My website is plain and needs a lot of work...We are working on it, but we're not in any hurry....Sorry i wasn't there for you and your cable...elbow grease is the worse stuff, aint it???

All the electricians I knew were color blind. Called them Sparky or Flash.

Yeah, don't leave us hanging here, this ain't "Survivor" you know!
You guys see the Glutton competiton on TV? 47 Pig testicles in 5 Minutes - 60 hotdogs & buns in 3 Minutes - 4 beef tongue in 3 minutes. 20' of sushi with 4' af Wasabe (hot hot horseradish - sorta) - most of them threw the brakes on when they hit that!
I ate an A&W Grampa Cheese burger after I pulled the chunk of gurnsey hide (c/w hair)off of one of the patties - made my buddy barf! I laughed so hard I peed my pants!

What is your primary application for these tools? I know what and why they are used by looking at your website, but what market uses these tools the most? I design all sorts of tooling or integrate tooling to machine systems, and I have not run into an application for tools like this yet. Knowing Murphy's Law, I will need a device like this next week. Please email me some background info! Thanks!

Electricians, telecom, and maybe industrial control guys. I have seen cable cutters like this for wire rope as well. The "tongs of life" also have shear blades similar but much heavier thatn the ones for copper and aluminum conductors. really heavy welding cable is about 4/o (pronounced four-aught) stranded copper cable. The largest copper conductors I have seen other than buss-bars was 2000 MCM (around two inchs or so). Cutting copper with a hacksaw is zero fun, hence the lovely cable shears Brent makes.

Dave is right...Most of our tools are sold to public utilities for cutting cable...We also sell to cable manufactures as well...My tools are also used for demolition, scrap yards, etc....For example, I sold 24 tools to Con Edison for clean-up of the world trade centers...I almost had a tool go up in space with nasa...but I was there last resort, and they fixed the problem before they got to me...too bad...But also my cutters are used for miscellaneous applications...A local steel manufacture welds big pipe, and they trim the slag off of the pipe, and they use one of my cutters to cut the slag into manageable sections so they can dispose of it...I sell these tools all around the world...
