Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by overall good product this a great tool. I have been beating on this cutting panels off of old chevelles and the rust or clean metal cuts great its a couple of years old and broke the cutting tip I forced it to go in a coner and with it binding then it hit weld and snap, great tool!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by a little disappointing I was disappointed in the ability to handle even minor fluctuations in material. We had trouble with 26 & 29 gauge steel unless you were cutting in a straight line. I was debating between this and a nibbler I think I picked the wrong tool. May 14, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good and bad i am using this to cut pro panel 29 gauge and this is a nice cutter but it leaves a scratch mark on the tin you are cutting. So i really do not like that part of it as i needed something this a cleaner cut but for the parts that will be covered it is fine December 20, 2011
