Tin Snips

Tin snips are a hand tool for cutting sheet metal; they resemble pliers and work like scissors. Also known as aviation snips and metal snips, these helpful tools come in various sizes and types for precision cutting.

What Are Tin Snips Used For?



Tin snips can be used for various industrial cutting jobs, including wire netting, light aluminium and even Kevlar. Offset aviation metal snips allow tighter curves, thanks to their offset blade.
