Right place ? Swimbo had a pre xmas visit ( or as I call it pilgrimage ) to Hobbycraft to get things for the family Xmas cakes. In the jewelery & crafts section I spotted these at 6.5 . The length of all is approx 4.5inches ( for the ex GPO/PO/BT blokes) that similar size to the PCB tools we used to get,. I remember that the longnose were affectionately nicknamed 41's in deference to 81's , being half the size, And these ones have the cutting edge, unlike the GPO 41's which did not. Cutters are said to be capable of cutting through hard temper wires , and I've always found the round long nose pliers usefull for forming loops or componants.
