Craftsman Compound Leverage Snips

I have been building a new deck at the house and we needed snips to cut the galvanized flashing that will prevent water intrusion into the home. A quick trip to Sears and we're back at home cutting that stuff like the hacksaw couldn't do without a lot of fuss!

For me and the task at hand, best tool for the money!

A nice little tool - but needs more distiction from competition

Normally I am a huge fan of anything marketed by Craftsman.  These snips are an exception, however. 

Sure they work as intended, and I've never had any trouble from them, but when you buy Craftsman you just expect more.

Maybe I am just spoiled by Craftsman's innovative designs, but these snips are almost exactly as the lesser brands.  I know what you are thinking.  They are tin snips, how innovative can they be - right?  Well, if anybody can improve the generic tin snip, the Gods of All Things Tools can.

A "commodity" tool

This cutter works very well for cutting left hand turns in sheet metal.  I have worked almost exclusively with sheet aluminum out to about 60 thousandths thick and these cutters work well on that thickness.  Any thicker, or steel thicker than about 20 thousandths, and you need a beefier tool.

As pointed out in another review, these are the same as lower priced tools.  I might add they are the same as more expensive versions also.  This is a staple, a "commodity" tool.  The main reason to buy Craftsman is the warranty, although I have never seen anyone manage to break a set of shears.  It would be nice if Craftsman added some value to the tool with additional features.
