Snips

Snips

Featuring long handles and short blades that typically provide better leverage and force than standard shop shears, snips can cut through tough materials like sheet metal, plastic, and rubber.

Standard Leverage Tinner's Snips

These standard leverage snips have a single pivot point and are operated just like scissors. The handles are pulled apart to open the blades so the workpiece can be placed inside for cutting, and then the handles are squeezed closed to cut through the material.

Offset Standard Leverage Tinner's Snips

Suitable for cutting through fairly rigid sheet metal, these snips have an offset head that keeps the operator's hands off the work surface and allows for longer cuts because it pushes the waste materials away from the workpiece as it cuts. Standard leverage snips have a single pivot point and are operated like scissors.

High-Leverage Aviation Snips

Designed for cutting through metal to make parts for airplanes, high-leverage aviation snips have a double-lever design that provides more leverage and force for cutting tough material than standard leverage snips of the same size. A spring holds the snips open when not in use, helping to reduce hand fatigue in repetitive cutting tasks. Unlike standard leverage snips, high-leverage snips can cut in different directions. The specified cutting direction indicates the side where the waste material will collect.

Offset High Leverage Aviation Snips

An offset jaw keeps the operator's hands clear of the workpiece and pushes the waste material away, allowing for longer cuts. Designed for cutting through metal to make parts for airplanes, high-leverage aviation snips have a double-lever design that provides better leverage and cutting force for tough materials compared to standard leverage snips of the same size. A spring holds the snips open when not in use, helping to reduce hand fatigue in repetitive cutting tasks. Unlike standard leverage snips, high-leverage snips can cut in different directions.

Upright High Leverage Aviation Snips

Cut objects overhead and get access to hard-to-reach workpieces with these upright high-leverage snips. The blades are set at a right angle to the body for improved maneuverability in confined or awkward spaces. Aviation snips have a double-lever design that provides better leverage and cutting force for cutting tough material compared to standard leverage snips of the same size. A spring holds the snips open when not in use, helping to reduce hand fatigue in repetitive cutting tasks. Unlike standard compound leverage snips, high-leverage snips can cut in different directions. The specified cutting direction indicates the side where the waste material will collect.

Non-Sparking Snips

Made from nonferrous materials to help minimize the risk of the tool generating a spark while in use, nonsparking snips are suitable for use in environments that contain flammable solvents, liquids, vapors, dusts, or residues.
