Can the wire cutters in the Minigrip/Pocketgrip be sharpened?
« on: June 01, 2018, 08:29:04 PM »
I just received a really nice PocketGrip from eBay. Everything is there, and it's in good condition, with the exception of the wire cutters. It's more of a wire smasher. It does get through the wire, but it just kinda smooshes insulation, unless I try and cut all the way at the back. Even then, it's still not clean cut. I can see some damage to the wire cutting teeth. Can this be dressed and fixed? I don't see an easy way to go about getting a file in there without disassembling the tool either, so that's an issue. Thoughts?

To be clear, wires are more or less cut. The bigger problem is zip ties. It just smashes them.
