Default warning!xcelite flush cutters!

i have seen several failed recap jobs come in where customer said board posted before they tried to recap it.
in all cases i found damaged traces near solder joints on replaced caps.
asked what tools were used to cut and in all cases i investigated (8) the cutters were the common xcelite flush cutters.
these have very sharp tips which will slice traces if they contact the board while cutting.
so hold these level to the board to avoid this issue.
