German term or phrase:umschlingende Anschläge
This is part of a description of the design of a tool be used for cutting off sections of pipe (Schneidebacke):
Zur Sicherstellung eines orthogonalen Schnitts sollten die Backen ***umschlingende Anschläge***, ähnlich der Rothenberger Rohrabschneider, besitzen. Durch Verwendung von zwei Anschlägen (rechts und links des Messers) kann eine Abstützung der Rohrwand sehr nahe am Messer vorgenommen werden.
I can't quite come up with anything that conjures up the same image in English, thanks in advance for your suggestions.
