Sidewall Cutter

The Sidewall Cutter is used to cut slickline wire against the tubing wall.  This may be required to clear the well past the Tubing Retrievable Subsurface Safety Valve (TRSSSV) or to clear down to ball of wire. 

The device is activated by simple manipulation of the running string or by sitting down on an obstruction. Downward jarring drives the hardened blades radially outwards until contact with the wire. Subsequent jarring severs the wire at this point.
