SACO, ME--(Marketwired - Oct 29, 2013) - Xuron Corp. has introduced a precision scissor that features thin, tapered blades and long handles for safely cutting photo-etched parts that are small and highly detailed without damaging and deforming their edges.

The Xuron® Model 9180ET Professional Photo-Etch Scissor has long, thin, tapered blades for reaching into tiny photo-etched part frets and producing clean cuts without damaging their edges. Featuring soft rubber grips that comfortably fit into large and small hands, this scissor has an open design which eliminates cumbersome finger loops, a built-in return spring, and a long, ergonomically shaped handle for optimum cutting control.

Ideal for de-gating and cutting soft metals up to 0.005" thick, the Xuron® Model 9180ET Professional Photo-Etch Scissor has ultra sharp tips that cut without bending, pinching, or twisting. Especially well suited for older hobbyists and scale modelers with arthritis and sore hands, the return spring on this ergonomic scissor brings the tool back into the open position after each cut.

The Xuron® Model 9180ET Professional Photo-Etch Scissor sells for $23.95 (suggested retail).
