I have a collection of handled tools like these end cutters. I am fascinated by the way they are manufactured. This is a really nice example.



How do tbey get those two parts together?

The little side cutters are USA made. The drawing is of the brand stamped on them. The stamping has left half tbe brand nd name off the side. Is the linesman logo familiar to any of you?

Theyíre riveted, then ground smooth. Youíre picture of the lineman logo didnít post, but itís likely Klein Tools. Iíve found them to be some of the best electrical tools that money can buy.

Eric, you are correct about the Klein tools side cutters. Klein fits in nicely between the visible
K and the not so clear N at the end.

However, the end cutters are not simply riveted together.This photo shows the detail more clearly. How do they get that wide cutting jaw through thar narrow gap?

That is called a box jaw joint. Box jaws are a old and well established joint for pliers they are very strong and take a lot more work to build pliers that way.
