Years ago I was told that wiss made snips that were capable of keeping an edge when cutting light gauge stainless steel. The material I will be cutting is sold as .010" thick (no gauge number)

Answer: 
Insulation, These are not the snips you were told about, these are our 18 Gauge Low Carbon Steel snips. But we do still offer the snips you were are looking for. The M1RS1 (Straight/Left cut) and M2RS1 (Straight/Right cut) are specially designed to cut stainless steel up to 18 Gauge. 18 Gauge measures .049" thick, so you should have no issue with the material you mentioned. These snips are not available Read More

Would this cut through a metal bathtub spout?

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: 
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

just how welll do these cut right and left?

This question is from Straight-Cut Aviation Snips
Asked by
Ormond Beach, FL

March 4, 2016
I have read product description where it says "capable of cutting left, right and straight in light stock"

I plan to cut 6" diameter holes into 10" and 8" round, rigid (28 gauge) ducts.
Is 28 gauge (galvanized) considered "light"?
Will the tight (6") diameter cuts on rather small (8 and 10") mains be a problem for this tool?

Am I better off getting a left/right set?
This is for a new install, so I can get all around the duct. Thanks

Answer: 
Carpot, The M3RS is designed to mainly cut straight lines in sheet metal. While its main purpose is to cut straight and can cut to the right and to the left, but in a wider arc then you are looking for. I would suggest using the M1RS and M2RS to make the tight 6" cuts you are planing on making. You can also find the Wiss 3 pack in store and online Model # M123R Internet # 100273810 Store SKU # 317027.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great and unfussy product Very durable. Got this for my daughter because she kept taking mine for her Victorian period costumes. She uses them almost weekly to cut spring-steel boning for corsetry and the like. I've only used mine for mild steel, aluminum, copper, fiberboard, leather, chicken wire, and a lot of other things.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Completes My Set I previously purchased the right- and left-hand aviation snips. These straight snips now complete my set. Made short order cutting through heavy plastic to fabricate some parts. If they work as well as the other snips, they will make short order of sheet metal as well. January 19, 2016
