While restoring my Hallicrafters SX-88 I needed to cut wires deep down
in the RF section ... and nowhere for the usual, or even special narrow, cutter to go.

While in the bathroom I noticed ... cuticle scissors, cheap ones.
They did the job, even with heavy wires. One pair did my SX-88.
They would not last another, but who cares?

Good idea, whatever works. I have used nail clippers in the past for similar circumstances.
