Default Re: warning!xcelite flush cutters!

Radial lead parts should be trimmed before soldering. It's faster, easier, and the work quality is much better. The lead trim length is close to the width of the blades on many wire cutters such as Harbor Freight 98410. Hold the cap even to the blade cocked back a bit to add some length. Practice results in even and perfect length cuts every time.
