      Tin Snips cut very well. Sharp!

      The snips are a great tool for my tool box. I have needed some for so long and they cut straighter than the old ones I have. It has made cutting so much easier and makes my work go much faster.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Smart women have their own tools!

      I had pulled up the carpeting in my hallway and put down vinyl tile. I had purchased carpet trim for the transition areas, and had no idea how to cut it. Everywhere I looked said to use a hacksaw, but that just wasn't working for me. I had the idea to purchase a pair of snips, and of course Craftsman was the only brand I would even consider buying. They are amazing! They have cut through both the small trim as well as the thicker, 2 1/2" wide trim like it was paper. They have made the job so much easier and I recommend them highly. They are comfortable to handle and use, unlike some hand tools.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Works Great

      I used this to cut thin metal and it worked great. It went right through the metal with very little effort on my part. Cuts straight and accurate. It is a little more pricey than I would expect so if you can find it on sale I would grab one.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Superb snips

      My dad bought this set of Craftsman straight snips 25 years ago and he rarely used them.  But after he gave it to me, I have used them a lot both outside in the yard, and in the shop.

      They have become quite rusty and the handle is mangled, but the blades still cut, even though I've worn out sections of the blade by using it to cut brake lines and other strong steel items.  The compound action makes it easy to use, and it's very ergonomic.

      Check to make sure that it's "Made in the USA" before you buy it.  My pair has it emblazoned on there, but they might have changed things since this was purchased.

      Commodity tool

      This cutter works very well for straight cuts in sheet metal and can be horsed into doing curves as well.  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.  I find my hands hurt after about 10 minutes of cutting especially thick material.

      Yes, 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.

      A nice tool but not enough improved 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.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
