whats the difference between straight cut offset and left cut offset?

Asked by fred February 17, 2019

Answers

Straight snips are made to cut in a straight line and are good for flat metals. Depending if you are right handed or left handed is what they are designed for. Right offset snips are designed to make straight and right (clockwise) cuts and designed for right handers. Left offset snips cut best straight and to the left (counter-clockwise). You can use any of the snips in either hand but they will only perform well when cutting in the direction they were intended for. I prefer the offset snips because they keep your hands up and away from the sharp metal that you are cutting.

Bought these to replace an old left-cut pair of Wiss snips.These are very high quality and the forged blades are what sold me. They easily cut through some sheet metal duct work and cut through aluminum dryer duct like it was paper. I Highly recommend these.

These are well made, heavy duty sheet metal shears. The offset handles do a good job of keeping your fingers and knuckles away from the sharp edges of the metal. I’ve cut many feet of 26 gauge metal siding and roofing, and so far they’re showing no signs of dulling. The cushion grips are easy on your hands, and the one hand locking mechanism is easy to use.

Should have bought these years ago! And I am a Milwaukee fan - love their stuff. And these offset snips do not disapoint! I have no problem buying tools I need for a job, knowing I will need that tool again. At the end of the day if I use a tool more than a couple of times, it will have likely paid for itself. But for whatever reason I kept putting off getting a pair of left and right hand cutting snips. Why - its not like they are going to break the bank. Instead I just struggled by with my straight cutting snips. Don't be that guy! Unless you use them everyday they will likely last you a lifetime and make those little frustrating jobs where you think you will get by with the straight cutters so much easier. These things are sweet. They feel good and solid in your hand and the chrome moly blades give a nice clean deliberate cut. No regrets and no more mangeled edges!

I recently built a deer/wildlife mineral feeder with a sheet metal roof. I have a pair of straight sheet metal snips and cutting long pieces and curves of metal were a problem, very hard to do. I suffered through the first one, but got these snips before starting the second one. Having the correct left hand snips made the job easier and no cutting up my hand either. They are sharp, made of quality material. The grip handles do not slip. The close/lock works well.

These are high quality and effective aviation metal snips! First things I noticed is how study they felt, how well made they are, and how good they felt in my hand. These snips made my old ones seem like cheap toys. The Milwaukee snips have forged blades which they say will stay sharp ten times longer than conventional blades. The blades are chrome plated for rust resistance and are built strong. No play at all in the cutting mechanism. The handles have excellent grip and comfort and have holes in the ends for peg board hanging. The jaw locking mechanism was flawless and easy to use. In use, these are high quality snips. These are a right angle set and did a great job of cutting light and heavy gauge sheet metal. While designed to cut in a right angle, they also did a decent job of cutting a straight line. The head is offset to provide greater material clearance when cutting, a real plus for longer run cuts. These snips should last a long time, are from a quality manufacturer, and do a great job of cutting sheet metal.

I already have aviation straight cutting snips and needed a pair of Right cutting (green color coded handle and best for right handers) to be able to cut tighter and smoother clockwise direction curves. I’m using these Milwaukee Aviation snips for DYI projects at home such as cutting and shaping sheets of copper, brass and aluminum. I use them mostly when building bird houses. I wish I had these right cutting offset snips when I built my shed last year. They would have done a better job of cutting some of the vinyl siding and aluminum trim curves. These also make easy work to open those products that come in clamshell plastic packaging. As with all my Milwaukee tools, I like the comfortable rubber grip and feel of these snips in my hand. The locking mechanism is located in a perfect position for my thumb to access for locking and unlocking. Very happy with the smooth cutting action and they work perfectly for making those tighter radius cuts.
