Cutting tools are primarily made up of portable hand-held cable cutters that work with common types of cable including coaxial cable. The most common cable cutter is the one-handed device that uses two steel blades and high leverage handles. Cutting tools can either be ratcheting or non-ratcheting. Typically, the type of cable cutter needed is based upon the type of cable and its size. The cable size (thickness) is not the only consideration as the user must also consider the materials used for conducting and casing. Graybar has a wide selection of cutting tools for any cable size or job.
