The Sheetmetal Tradesman's Choice
Midwest Snips® forged blade offset model aviation snips are the world's best! We offer three different blade pattern models and two blade hardness options in this product category as well as two tradesmen sets. These models perform superior to respective model ASME Performance Requirements.
Our offset model aviation snips are "The Sheetmetal Tradesman's Choice" because they are truly the easiest models to use in a variety of sheetmetal cutting applications. The offset blade pattern flows material away from the blades. This allows the snip to move forward without interference when making cuts through long sheets. It also allows the snip to cut tighter curves than other blade pattern models. The left and right blade pattern models cut the tightest curves while the straight blade pattern offers a slightly longer length of cut.
Special Hardness Models are to be used for cutting hardened sheet metals only such as stainless steel, inconel, titanium, etc.
