Milwaukee Snips & Scissors
For manual cuts in sheet metal, Hand Tool Snips from Milwaukee Tools are the ideal solution. Milwaukee snips come in a wide variety and offer solutions to every cutting job. Sheet metal is a tough medium and every job is unique, so there are a few factors to consider.
First, if your job uses 16 gauge sheet metal you need bulldog metal snips. Bulldog snips have longer handles for greater leverage than other snips. This strength allows bulldog snips to cut through such tough material as 18 gauge stainless steel.
If you work with aluminum, thin wire or 24 gauge steel, then aviation snips are for you. Aviation snips provide cutting power without the need for long handles. Offset snips have the blade set off at an angle from the handles. This protects your hands from the metal that you cut by making it flow away from your hands.
Right angle snips provide an easy way to cut at extreme angles. This is necessary because sheet metal is too strong for cutting curves and angles with regular snips. Left-cutting and right-cutting metal snips let you cut left or right curves at soft angles with less strain. The curved snips are color coded so you can tell at a glance which tool you are using and avoid costly mistakes. Straight, left-cutting and right-cutting snips are available in three packs from Milwaukee.
All Milwaukee hand tools come with a limited lifetime warranty that protects you from broken tools. They are forged from alloy steel blades for the highest-available strength. All of Milwaukee's manual snips have coated ergonomic handles to keep you working without pain until the job is complete. Try out Milwaukee snips and enjoy comfort and power for all your sheet metal projects.
