I'm not sure what music wire is but I've used the above products on steel fence as well as copper wire.
I just use a Dremel cut-off wheel.
Good find RC
Here's a link to a 7" version that cuts up to .08" wire.... but it has a small chip out on the outside edge of the jaw blade. Parts can be bought for these.
The new Starretts sell for $200-$300.
Bahco makes stuff for music wire too
These are what you'll find on manufacturing production floors today.
8" version that will do .1" music wire. New for $45
Or just a use a dremel
Cuts ACSR, screws, nails and most hardened wire
induction hardened cutting knives
Seriously, you assume only the OP is interested in the answer/topic. LOL.
Back in the 80s I did some deep sea fishing. We used a special pliers/cutter made for cutting and bending ss leader wire. I've still got a pair. Does a great job cutting tempered ss wire. Might check fishing store, west marine, etc.
I learned to NOT LOAN TOOLS. That's why I now have three sets of craftsman tools (retired) and set of electronics tools.
A dremel tool is a nice addition for any hobby or job tool set.
