Abstract : A portable scissor-like tool is provided that will bend and cut a workpiece at a predetermined length, such as the electrical leads extending from a flat-pack type of integrated module in sequential operations without the need for changing tools. Adjustable means are provided for varying the depth of the bend in the work-piece depending on the installation. Latch means are included to prevent the accidental cutting of the leads before the bending operation. (Author)
