Wire Pin Cutter

This cutter cuts bulk wire into pin connectors. Figs. 1 and 2 are top and side views, respectively. Wire 1, is supplied from a spool or the like, not shown. It is inserted into a bore in shearing block 2 in the direction A. The wire is cut between shearing faces 2a and 3a of block 2 and cutter blade 3, respectively. Blade 3 is rotatably mounted to shoulder pin 4, the latter being affixed to block 2. Base member 5 supports block 2 which is affixed to it by screws or the like. Slidably mounted on the top side of blade 3 is wire stop 6.

In operation, cutter blade 3 is moved in the DOWN direction via its handle 7 and brought to rest on cutter blade stop 8 which is affixed to base 5. Wire 1 is inserted into the bore of block 2 and also into and through another appropriately aligned bore in cutter blade 3. With the thumb operated wire stop 6 in the FORWARD direction, the end of wire 1 is brought to rest at stop 6. The operator raises UP handle 7 and cuts the wire l.between faces 2a, 3a. Thereafter, blade 3 is placed at rest in the DOWN position on stop
8. Next, wire stop 6 is moved in the RETRACT direction. The bulk wire 1 is then moved in the forward direction A, causing the cut wire piece to be ejected from the bore of cutter 3. Stop 6 is then placed in its FORWARD position by moving it in the direction FORWARD. The bulk wire 1 is then advanced further in the direction A, until it comes to rest at stop 6. The cutter is now ready for the next cutting o...
