This is where you really learn the differance in quality between tools.

I used some cheap "9's" 9" lineman pliers. Although they cut the large copper center conductor fine, they would no longer cut small things like lashing wire or string. When I finally dropped the $30 for some kleins, they had a hardened cutting surface. This made it so you could cut some small hardened wire and still cut string or rope without any problems. I would use them to hammer in copper staples, cut center conductors or cable, live or not, then cut lashing wire without any problems. I have even used them to cut a .40 sized nose wheel. Still cut like there new.

Now messing around with 120+, I'm sure they'd get a hole burned in them.

Ever hang any C-COR or ADC nodes/amps?

Ask me why your DX5e is doomed... and how to fix it.
