Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes quick work of r panel Awesome tool I have a shear and this is by far a superior tool. The die pushes the cresant shaped waste towards the floor. The curf is about 3/16 of a inch. If you build metal buildings you are wasting time not having this tool. August 15, 2012

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gets the Job Done Used the nibbler to cut panels on a metal roof, it worked great, it saved a lot of time, very easy to use, one drawback, it only cuts forward, can't cut to the side. I would recommend to anyone thinking of buying one for cutting metal. April 15, 2014
