Xuron's Plastic Modeler Tool Kit Precisely Cuts and Handles Tiny Pieces

SACO, ME--(Marketwire - Jun 19, 2012) - Xuron Corp., the leading manufacturer of precision hand tools for high-technology assembly operations, is introducing a new precision tool kit developed especially for advanced plastic scale model builders. The kit includes three specialty tools that cuts sprues and photoetched parts, and makes them easier to bend, form, and insert.

The Xuron® TK3200 Pro-Modelers Tool Kit is designed to let plastic model builders cut plastics and photo-etched parts as well as hold and manipulate them without damaging the parts. Eliminating razor blades and knives, the kit includes a Model 9180ET Scissors with long, ultra-sharp tips, the Model 2175ET Sprue Cutter with a low-profile, by-pass cutting jaw, and Model 450 Tweezer-nose pliers for bending, forming, inserting, and holding parts.

Each tool in the Xuron® TK3200 Pro-Modelers Tool Kit is ergonomically designed to be used for several hours at a sitting. Made from high carbon steel that is blackened to prevent glare and reduce eye strain, they provide optimum working leverage and feature Xuro-Rubber™ cushioned hand grips for a comfortable grip, along with return springs. The kit includes a handy canvas pouch with pockets for storing and protecting each of these high-precision tools.

The Xuron® TK3200 Pro-Modelers Tool Kit is priced at $72.49 (suggested retail) and is totally manufactured in the U.S.A.
