Rated 5 out of 5 by Makita Nibbler Ive used every tool there is in the past to cut metal roofing, but not anymore! This nibbler is probaby the best Tool Investment I have ever made period. It is so much safer, quieter and quicker than anything Ive ever used. THANKS MAKITA AND HOME DEPOT great tool and great price!!! July 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 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
Rated 5 out of 5 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 out of 5 by This product is a steel cutting must! The Makita JN1601 nibbler is and excellent tool for ribbed steel cutting, it is accurate, easy to use and affordable. It will cut your time down on a steel roof, barn or any construction project and will easily pay for its self in no time. April 3, 2012
