    Would regular wire cutters work for cutting through a chain link fence? There is this construction yard i want to get into but, there's a 10ft fence with barbed wire. Last time i climbed a barbed wire fence i cut the shit out of myself and fell off the top. Just looking for other ways around it.

    Wire cutters are for small wires like the shit that connects speakers to your stereo. They wont do shit on a fence, except give your hand cramps. Like Beardo said Bolt Cutters but they're pretty big so keep that in mind.

    my set is only about a foot and a half long or so... not too big. cuts like magic, and it makes a real cool 'clink' sound when it cuts through. makes me feel like im james bond or something.

    go to ace hardare and get yourself $30 pair of bolt cutters. will cut through most stuff. they even carry pocket sized ones (like 7 inches big) so u can bolt cut mobile.

    To those people that have those 'pocket sized' cutters. Is there any difference in how hard it is to cut through fences,barbed wire? Cause the ones I used were the big ones and they cut like butta. I was just thinking about the physics of it. you know longer handle better leverage easier to cut.

    i hear you pistol... torque=amount of force X length of leverarm
    longer lever arm...less force necessary to accomplish the same thing

    its easier just to cut a fence...why act like bingo the junkyard dog when you can just cut through a fence...plus you get that "commando" feeling....nothing can beat the commanda feeling!

    once you decide what to use do the cut about 1and a half feet high along the pole so its harder for them to see.watch out for sharp edges though and slide thru

    C7's

    bolt cutters are big, heavy, annoying, and if yer arrested can be called a deadly weapon by a cop...

    if you go to a specialty hardware store, that works with metal, you can get a pair of (what i've known as) C7's. they go under different names, but they are basically super-wire-cutters. They are about the same size as your standard wire cutters, but have a much different blade, and are designed for cutting aircraft cable (super strong braided steel cable. a 1/8th inch thick strand has i think a 5000 pound limit) they do require a little extra hand strength when going through chain link, but not too much, and are much easier to conceal.

    also, look and try to fid a corner that the fence anchors to (on a square lot the chain link usually continues and bends around three corners, and is anchored on one). when you find it, it will probably only have anchors (same thickness as chain link) every foot or so. then to get a three foot hole, you only need to make 3 or 4 cuts, instead of 20 or so...

    have fun and liberate!
