Do you think a cordless Dremel tool with a diamond cutoff attachment would work well for cutting 1 x1 galvanized wire? I'm trying to make it easier. After a while the hands start to get a work out...

Diamond cutters are for extremely hard material, and generally if used on soft material, the diamond dust will be stripped off the holder.

About the brake/shear mentioned by Bud.

Klubertanz sells a shear for welded wire that cuts up to 12 ga. They also have several other shears including the Miwaukee shear mentioned earlier. As to the cordless shears such as DeWalt 18 volt, only good for small jobs, eats batteries.
Harbor Freight sells an economy shear for about $50 but it's not the tool the Milwaukee shear is.

All of our wire is 16 ga. that we work with. But I am sure it will cut 14ga.also, but the life of the blade may be less with constant use on the heavier wire grid.I have never changed blades out yet. We have two shears and it seems the cord wears out faster then the blades do.

If you're not cutting all day long, a good pair of diagonal cutters do fine.

Diagonal cutters leave a small stub on the wire. I have not found any that will cut smooth. If you know of any that will cut smooth and not break up my hand, I would like to know about them.

Check out Flush cutting wire cutter. Basically a heavy diagional cutter that has been flush ground on the cutting side. They do cut fairly close but I still knock off the sharp edge with a file or sand paper. You could do it yourself and save a couple of $$$.

And the worst part is that when you get as old as Jim and Ron and I, you can't even feel it and when you see the blood you're not sure where or when you cut yourself.

If I angle the "dikes" right, there is no spike. Don't try this with a cheap pair.

I thought about getting a sheet metal shear; that would work, wouldn't it?
