A: Hi Rick, 22ga is the thickest steel the snips are optimized for. Thinner steel (24ga and 26ga) are good to go, but thicker steel (18ga or 16ga) will not provide a great cutting experience.
A: The cut capacity for the Milwaukee 10 in. Straight-Cut Offset Aviation Snips is up to 22-Gauge stainless and 18-Gauge cold-rolled steel.
A: These will work. Home Depot also sells a straight cutting pair, There are right, left and straight cutting snips that are adequate for your needs. You should use some sort of safety glasses and tough gloves are a necessity to also use. I'd also double cover those vents to deter those rodents. Good galvanized hardware cloth is a must. Hope this helps
A: The straight cut works best to cut metal roofing
A: The straight cut snips cut straight up from the base of where you are cutting. Left cut make an angle that travels to the left of the base of what you are cutting.
A: Most definitely. They're sold in Left, Right., as well as straight cut. I've got all three snips. What happens is the way they cut and push the cut ends off the edge. They're good, sharp, cutters. I've had them a few years and use them frequently. Best I've found. Use good leather gloves so your knuckles don't end up looking like mine
A: Straight snips are for making straight cuts and left offset snips make it easier for left angled or left curving cuts.
