While replacing the headphone jack in my iPod Touch, I was temporarily stymied on how to cut a flex circuit so I could remove the jack, desolder the tail, and resolder the new jack. Then I remembered my wife’s cuticle scissors. In hindsight I could have just desoldered the connector without cutting the flex circuit, but cutting it sure made the whole operation a lot easier.

It’s not the first time I’ve turned to these type scissors for fine work. I guess it’s not surprising a manicure tool would be useful at the workbench — the scissors are made for precision cutting in close quarters and the curved blades let you get really close to what you’re cutting while still allowing room for your fingers to fit into the loops.

The reason scissors like these are called cuticle scissors is because they are meant for trimming cuticles and hangnails. (Shhh… you didn’t hear it from me, but these scissors are also handy for removing stitches.)  This pictured pair of curved cuticle scissors from Revlon have ultra-fine, curved blades made from high-tempered stainless steel.

  1. Also work well on nose-hair. Better than sticking up one of the battery powered cutter up there.

    Or you could borrow from the Mrs. when she isn’t looking, clean them up REALLY good, and sneak them back before she notices.

    Not possible. She will know. I don’t know how they know, but they do. First, it will be “the hair dryer incident” all over again, then you’re every move (or non-move) will be suspect.

    i prefer the spring loaded “pliers/side cutters type” toenail cutters for my DIY needs, and they are sometimes better than the off the shelf micro electronics side cutters

    @ mlocer
    Those side cutter nail clippers have a permanent home in my tackle box. They’re great for trimming line after tying off a swivel or leader.

    The only reason she knows is that you guys clean it up after you use them. She used them to cut her toe nails and all those gross stuffs.
