Product Description

The Craftsman Compound Leverage Snips, Bulldog/Notching Aviation for Perfect Notch Cuts

These compound leverage snips, bulldog/notching aviation have a short cut length (7/8 inch) that makes notching sheet metal simple. The compound leverage handle increases the cutting force to make those cuts effortless. The serrated, hot drop-forged alloy steel blades grab and slice through sheet metal like butter. They can handle heavy gauge metal sheets (16 gauge cold-rolled or 18 gauge stainless) and double-thickness sheets.

Your Craftsman compound leverage snips, bulldog/notching aviation has molded plastic grips that are comfortable to use. The handles are high tensile strength steel that'll hold up to rough use. The design includes a center pivot bolt through the bottom blade that helps keep the blades in adjustment, so you get more (and better) cuts between adjustments. The blades are lockable for safety. These snips are guaranteed to provide a lifetime of metal notching pleasure.

Nip and Tuck

If you have to cut a notch in any sheet metal, there are so few ways you can do it. The Best solution is a pair of "Tin Snips" which today are called "Aviation Snips". The newer model with the compound leverage are a lot easier to use that the pair my father taught me to us when I was working with him in our basement work shop. Every shop should have a pair.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

small and powerful but with limited uses

These are average compound snips with a comfortable grip. Not posted clearly in the online description is the short cutting depth. These snips are only for notching a 7/8" cut and are hard to use on longer cuts. Also for anyone who is using these to cut against a right angle, the thickness of the cutter makes it difficult. Sharp, comfortable but limited in use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Short Bite of these Snips Makes them Unique

The short throat on these snips makes it very easy to make notch cuts in sheet metal.  They don't jhave the tendancy of curling up the work-piece like the standard aviation snips do.  I work a lot with 24 gauge galvanized steel and I've found that these snip handle it with ease.

Oh and by the way, did I mention they come with the famous Craftsman Warranty?

I would recommend this product to a friend.
