R.I.P. my lovely Xuron

One of my favorite tools, my Xuron Maxi-Shear® Flush Cutters, died. Tools don't live forever, especially if you work them hard everyday. If these Xurons were a pet, they would have been a loyal dog. Luckily had two pair...but now the other one is lonely. So, I will have a buy a nice, new, bright orange handled companion for it.

Oh my goodness..... I saw your post in Google Reader, and I just skimmed the text and thought I read "FLESH Cutters!!!" Yikes!

Soooo glad they're just FLUSH cutters :~)

Sorry to hear about it, I understand the bond between favorite creative utensil & artist! I bet the bright orange ones won't seem the same..... :~/

Oi vey I hate when trusted tools break. You go to replace them, but the new ones just arent the same. Well, heres hoping you find an even better set of cutters.
