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.
