Capri Tools 9 in. Straight-Cut Tin Snip is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precise for heavy or light work The compound leverage design used with these snips allows relatively effortless precise cuts regardless of the guage metal being cut. These snips will cut anything up to 16 guage steel. They have double heat treated chromolly blades. The handles are cushioned and designed to easily fit a person's hand allowing the leverage to really bear down on the heavy stuff. The part I found most useful was the centrally located locking device which you could either engage or disengage with just your thumb (see the pix). I could just pick these up, thumb off the lock and start cutting. Even though the snips were made to handle some pretty thick steel I was still able to make precise cuts in light weight aluminum flashing without the usual bending and twisting which always gives rise to my post military vocabulary. When extending the cuts these snips don't make those sharp finger slicing burrs my old ones did and the sides of the cut metal lie flat allowing continued accurate cutting. I'll be using these for a long while.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great piece of compact tool The Compact Aviation Tin Snips is a great piece of tool to add to your collection. It is a compact tool that delivers great performance. I use it to cut aluminum cans and copper sheet. The first thing you'll notice right a way is the angle of the scissor blades--they are straight. Most snips are typically angled up 25-30 degree. The straight position gives you better control. It comes with a spring between the blades to increase cutting proficiency by creating a negative resistance when the blades cross each other. The handles are molded perfectly to fit your palm to prevent slips. It also has a one push button to lock the scissor blades when not in use. It is compact that you can carry it in your back pocket. You can cut all sorts of sheet metal, cooper sheet, aluminum cans are no problem, up to 16 gauge. Overall this is a great tool for your smaller cut that requires clean and accuracy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, Lightweight and Strong I cut a lot of metal while working on my craft projects and these 7" tin snips are my favorite tool. I find I have better control when cutting because of their compact, lightweight size. I can cut out small and/or very detailed pieces with more accuracy and get into hard-to-reach spots easier than with the typical larger, heavier tin snips. The steel blades are super sharp and seem to glide through the metal. The molded, ergonomic handles are very comfortable and allow for extended use with no aching or tiring. Great, very well-made tool!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for Short Cuts The Compact aviation tin snips are very good for short snips of lighter gauge steel and aluminum. The jaw opening is roughly 3/8 of an inch with a depth of about 1 1/4 inches. I have used this tool for short cuts and trimming as the jaws are not designed for long cuts. When using a rotary cutter it is a fairly common issue to have burs and occasional short strips where the wheel does not cut completely through the metal. This aviation tin snips works great for cleaning up edges and removing burs. It is also quite handy when fabricating light steel and aluminum where you want exact cut outs along the edges and for rounding corners. I used this tool quite a bit when using the plasma cutter to making steel shelving. Trimming edges is short work with this tool. The grips are very well designed and comfortable to use. There is a finger grips on both sides that allow excellent handling when cutting, even with heavy gloves on. The cutting edge is sturdy and remains sharp, even after repeated cuts. The blade locking device, similar to a variety of garden tools, is strong enough to hold the jaws tight and avoid opening when being moved around. The tin snips are especially useful for small cuts and trimming .Overall I am pleased with the tool. It is not designed for big jobs or thicker metal as this requires a greater degree of grip and the jaw opening is too small for that kind of work. For the lighter metals it works great and is a very handy tool to have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tool for the amature or the pro! I got these so I could cut through the steel walls of my pole barn in order to mount some exterior electrical boxes. Cutting a 4 inch circle for the fixture box was relatively easy. The cutter was very sharp, the handle was comfortable to the hand while squeezing and working them to form a circle was a breeze. My only complaint was that the jaws of the cutter didn't open wide enough for some cuts, and was rectified by making more than one cut to compromise for this shortcoming. In all a good tool

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy and convenient This pair of snips is quite smaller than I am used to. They open easily with one hand and are a lot easier to handle than "traditional" sized snips. I can see someone with smaller hands finding them user-friendly. They cut metal flashing and corner bead just as easy as my other pairs, I don't know about thicker gauge metal but probably the majority of users would want another tool for that especially for extended periods. All I know is it cuts thin gauge metal and fits easily in my tool bag, and my pocket when I have to put it down quickly and use both hands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shear Enjoyment A small sized shear that will be convenient for small detail work in thin stock. The specs indicate capability up to 16 ga. steel. Although it WILL cut that thickness, it is slow going and requires a great deal of force. On thinner stock, it cuts as expected, though the small jaw capacity limits the amount of cut with each "bite", which can lead to jagged cuts if one is not careful. This would be a good choice for someone who has no need for a full sized shear and only works with relatively thin stock,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size Aviation Snips. Another great product from Capri, 7 in. Left-Cut Compact Aviation Tin Snips. I like the smaller size. It makes cutting corners easier and it fits in my small female hands better. The snips cut through the metal very easily as shown in the video. I like the locking feature. It is much easier to use and more stylish than the locks on other aviation snips I have. Of course the compound four bar linkage that drives the cutters is wonderful in amplifying ones hand strength for cutting. Much nicer than a direct shear cutter. I like this tool and I use it for doing duct work around the house. It is also great for crafts. My son and I are building a little robot out of a soda can and these aviation snips are perfect.
