+1 on the Erem 522N. I've had mine for 15+ years. Still good as new
after countless rounds of lead and wire (and fingernails too :) )
snipping. Don't use them as much today as I've shifted towards SMD and
fewer flying wires.
I like the scissors. I've added a pair to my Mouser shopping list for my
next order. Thanks for the tip! I do have sheet metal shears for thick
stuff, but they're big and clunky.
