Would this cut through a metal bathtub spout?

September 20, 2015
I have a slip-on metal tub spout that somehow got mis-aligned inside and the set screw to remove it is no longer even visible from the slot to access it. Would this snips work to cut the spout outer metal shell so I can get to the screw? I've tried pulling on the inside with pliers to see if I can move the ring/plastic insert to try to get the set screw accessible, but that was no use.

Answer: 
Thanks for the reply, Apex. The part was less than 18ga thick so I was able to use it to cut around until I found the screw :)

Answer: 
Sinosamba,
The Wiss Aviation Snips are designed and intended to cut up to 18 gauge low carbon steel, commonly refereed to as 18 gauge sheet metal. With out knowing the strength and thickness of the metal tub spout in question, it is impossible to make a recommendation on the right tool for this cut.

Answer: 
I would either use linesman side cutters which have sturdier induction hardened cutting blades or bolt cutters for thicker material. These both are sheer cutting blades that use a guillotine-like action with both blades meeting in the middle. The snips can cut up to 18 awg steel but use a bypass action (like scissors). This makes it hard to cut wire because they tend to twist and let the wire slide in Read More

Answer: 
NSGardener,
Our aviation snips are specifically designed to cut 18 gauge sheet metal. While they will most likely make the cut in your welded wire, there are better tools for the job. I would suggest looking into our Pivot Pro Linesmen plies, Model # CCA20509 Internet # 204989452 Store SKU # 1000042568. These pliers are designed with a special pivot joint that allows the user to cut with 40% less effort

Straight-Cut Aviation Snips is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Straight-Cut Aviation Snips USA made, cuts like a champ! The handle is easy to squeeze (arthritis!). If you need one, get a good one. Cheap tools are only good for giving as gifts or losing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I am a commercial roofer. I use snips on a daily basis for cutting metal coping,snap edge metal,cleat,radius metal, and etc. The handles bend when cutting heavier gauge metal. And they do wear out quicker then most. I do not recommend these to anyone who would use them on a daily basis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality snips! These straight snips are a good buy. I've had Wiss Snips for years and the only problem I ever had was because I left one outside and it rusted shut. My bad. I'll bet if I soak them in penetrating fluid I can fell them up and they will cut as good as ever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light Duty Only While these are great for thin sheet metal and small wire cutting, the design does not provide much leverage to the tip so what it will cut is limited. It also will not cut things such as wire shelving.
Date published: 2016-11-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Straight-Cut Aviation Snips I occasionally have a need to cut thin aluminum flashing and this tool is great. Additionally, I cut inexpensive, flexible putty knives so that I'm able to tool caulking beads to a size of my choosing.
