Typical Applications

Shears and nibblers are powerful hand tools perfect for cutting through a range of materials such as metal, wood, plastic, cardboard and more. The three most common types of tin snips available are straight cut, left cut and right cut. The direction does not refer to which hand they are best suited to, but to what side the waste material will be on. For example, straight cut snips allow you to cut through metal in a straight line to the length of the blade, whereas left cut allows you to cut straight or curved with the waste material to the left and right snips to the right.
