Ordinary tin snips, or even really good metal shears, are tricky to use. The metal invariably twists up or down as you cut ,and it's very hard to keep on course. Plus, it's nearly impossible to start a cut in the middle of the sheet.

This one is so outstandingly different you will be amazed. It's great for any sheet metal work - auto body, duct work, stovepipe, etc. A single 3/32" tooth is mounted on a double-action lever for incredible leverage. Simply start nibbling and a thin strip of metal begins to curl off. Cut straight or turn curves as the job requires - the flat surface of the sheet never twists and distorts. If you stop the cut in the middle of the sheet, just squeeze hard and the curl will shear off.

Works equally well in the left or right hand. And if you have to start a cut in the middle, you need only drill a 5/16" hole as a starting point. It is really exceptional tool. Made In France.

Slow but Convenient
Reviewed By:   (Huntington Beach, CA) 
I've had better results with this nibbler than the other reviewers indicate. In my experience notching tool box trays and other square edge cut-outs were far easier than with any other type of snip. I broke a blade once by turning too sharp and essentially using the blade to pry instead of just cut straight up and down. Thankfully, not a very expensive lesson. While this is not the shear or snip to cut lots of long lines - it's hard to beat when you need to cut around the outside of a 90* bend, square and sharp into a corner or out of a very small access hole.

Ok but not great

I used it successfully on steel up to 18 gauge with the standard cutter. It cuts straight but slow. I broke the tip when I hit some double thickness steel by mistake.

I wanted a hand-powered "nibbler" type metal cutter and this is looked like the solution.Perhaps if I only wanted to cut copper! Anything over 26 gauge steel is out of the question.I quickly shattered the cutter it came with as well as the 'heavy-duty' one for cutting stainless steel.Also,it doesn't clear the waste strip at all-I always had to stop and pry it out.Save your money.
