Known interchangeably as bailing wire or bind wire, tie wire is a powerfully resilient, slender kind of metal suitable for securing materials such as wood, metal, and fabric. Regular wire cutters are capable of slitting the wire; however, tie wire cutters, specifically designed to expedite the task, have long and sharpened jaws to effectively cut the tie wire in a matter of seconds. Here is how to get the job done using tie wire cutters:
Firmly clutch the tie wire cutter’s handle in your accustomed hand.
With a firm grip, fit the jaws of the cutter around the tie wire.
With a gentle press of the handle, the metal jaws come together, swiftly slicing through the wire.
For each iteration until the tie wire has been severed, execute steps two and three consecutively.
Utilize the tie wire cutter to eliminate any pointed corners from the severed wire.
Once you’ve become accustomed to it, you’ll be able to effortlessly utilize a pair of tie wire cutters and slice through tie wire like a hot knife through butter.
