Go to the site where you signed up and where it shows the class you are registered for it will tell you all that you need to bring, but that sounds about right. I forget what type of cutters you need, I think they were c7? I'm sure ******* will let you know for sure. I have my class coming up in 2 weeks, I can't wait and this was a good reminder for me to go out and get my snips. [ko]

I know what you mean oneshot, but i remember ******* saying something about home depot selling a pair for about $20-30 if I remember. I was most likely gonna go there and check them out.

My son and I will be there as well. If you got a small set of linemans pliers I think they will work just as good. The heaviest wire to cut would be #9 or 1/8 aircraft cable

depot has them for $35 i have made hundreds of snares with them, and cut a bunch off animals.
they are for cutting CABLE, not support wire. they will last a long time. it sounds like a lot of money, but cut 3/32 with lineman pliers, then try the right tool for the job. night and day.

have fun at your class

i just bought a set of C7's from mcmaster carr, they were $65. i needed to cut some cable at work, so i had them buy me a nice new pair.
i can't say anything bad about the depot cutters. they still cut fine.
a good set of lineman pliers is also a must for support wires.
get some hip boots. and be prepared to be outsmarted by a little fuzz ball.
