Enter wire size:
PCS-2 Magnum Core Cutter is primarily used for cutting lead wire of .390 and .430 diameters, but can also be used for smaller sizes. The minimum length is the thickness of the half-inch steel lever, whereas the PCS-1 can cut as short as 1/4-inch lengths.

This massive tool is nearly five times as heavy and more than twice the length of the PCS-1 core cutter. It uses the PCS-2D dies (one in the top or fixed mounting bar, and one in the movable lever) which can be made for up to half inch diameter wire. The largest standard wire is .430, since heavier wire would be more like a bar, not easily coiled or uncoiled without kinking.

The PCS-2 is the best choice even for small calibers if the length of core does not have to be shorter than half an inch, and if one expects to use wire larger than .365 at some future point. Otherwise, the smaller PCS-1 will do the job as well (better for very short cores) at a lower cost for both the tool and the optional, additional dies.

Each PCS-2 comes with your choice of one set of standard dies for a given wire diameter. Other dies can be added as needed. The tool mounts on your loading bench. Wire is normally fed down from the top, often from an improvised holder that allows the entire spool of wire to be suspended over the cutter. Such a holder can be assembled from 1/2 or 3/4 inch iron pipe, with a pipe flange base and an el- connector (right angle). Simply pull off a length of wire and feed it down into the dies until it contacts the adjustable stop screw, move the handle to cut the wire, and move it back to feed in more wire.
