If you care about the quality of the tools you use or sell, you’ll appreciate a company that cares about the quality of the tools it makes. At Midwest Tool and Cutlery Company we take pride in manufacturing in the USA the very best tin snips you can buy anywhere in the world today. From their Kush’nKote®gripped handle bows to the tip of their hot drop-forged blades, our tin snips outperform and outlast all others.
Each hot drop-forged blade is individually fitted and finish assembled to assure uniform shearing action. The Grade-8 blade pivot bolt provides maximum wear resistance and is affixed into the bottom blade. A special design locknot keeps the blade in adjustment. This feature also allows blades to be re-adjusted if necessary after extensive use. Wave washers that are used by other manufacturers to hold blades in adjustment frequently “spring” allowing blades to loosen and separate. Blades that are loose or out of adjustment allow material to wedge sideways between the blades instead of precision cutting. Midwest Kush’nKote® tin snips are individually inspected and test cut prior to leaving the factory and each performs superior to ASME Standard B107.500.2010(B107.16) performance requirements.
