THIS IS FOR UNCUT NEEDLES. If you want to use them in our rooting tool, you must cut them. We sell an excellent pair of cutters for cutting them, as item #1140. They are the best we have ever tried for cutting these needles. We also sell a "Second Best" pair of cutters which are also pretty good (not as good as #1140, though), and about 1/4 the cost as #1140! Our SB Cutters ("Second Best") are item #1229.
