Milwaukee snips are a great value! I have used the straight cut (yellow) snips for years. While recently watching videos on 'post and beam' barn construction, with metal siding... saw that contractor was also using 'left and right' snips (red and green). Found the Milwaukee set of three snips at Home Depot, at a great price on sale!

I have had another set of snips that come in multi color next to these at the store. They just snapped after one year of light use. I was breaking down old picture frame wire and those literally broke in half. I used these to do the same thing with absolutely no issues. They also require very little effort and the leverage seems to be better balanced. I look forward to many more years of use for these!

These snips are definitely professional quality. Well made, solid, good balance and excellent cutting ability. I recently used them to do some relatively light-duty cutting of a rain gutter system. Very accurate and easy to use. These are a left-right set, so depending on the situation, getting in close to the cut line is easier. There is a built in lock so the blades stay together/protected when not in use and also a bolt lock so blades won't loosen. As I said, they're professional grade and I would definitely recommend these snips to anyone looking in this category.

I need to replace my old tin-snips they were getting pretty dull. This 3 -piece set includes left, right, and straight aviation snips.. They are color coded and stamp R – L – S on the blade to tell which they are. They blades are made of forged steel that has been chrome plated so it will not rust. The blades held by a bolt that is flush so it will not hang up on your material. My old ones always got hung up. The one handed metal lock his heavy duty. The hands are ergonomically to help stop fatigue. The snips will cut up to 22 –Gauge Stainless and 18 – Gauge cold-rolled steel. It comes with a Lifetime Warranty.

The color coded flashes on the aviation snips handles use the international standard of red (left) yellow (center) and green (right). The big claim for these snips is that the forged blades will enable ten times more cuts than cast blades … it will be a while before I can confirm that! The snips have other innovative features; the one finger operable lock is very easy to use and does not slip once the position is selected. The jaws are held together with a flush bolt that doesn’t snag on the material being cut. The handles are heavy duty riveted construction. The plastic handles are comfortable to hold and have a little give so I can squeeze hard without the handles digging in to my hand. The moulded finger guides offer better grip and control of the cut. The jaws have the capacity to cut through 18 gauge (1 mm) cold rolled steel and 22 gauge (0.6 mm) stainless steel. These snips are far better quality and much nicer to use than the twenty year old ones they are replacing. In common with most Milwaukee hand tools they come with a limited lifetime warranty.

I don't know whether I'll get 10x more cuts with the forged blades of these Milwaukee aviation snips, but in using these, it's obvious these are far superior to the generic snips I've been using for years. These snips have a comfortable grip and a nicer one-handed metal lock to keep them closed. No more fumbling for the dang clip. And no more having the bolt hung up on the metal because these snips have a flush bolt. Thank you!!! These cut up to 18 gauge (1mm) cold rolled steel and up to 22 gauge (0,6mm) stainless. I typically use them to cut aluminum flashings and 1/4" galvanized hard wire. They work great and having left, right, and straight snippers comes in handy. They're even marked "R" (right), "L" (left), and "S" (straight). These have chrome rust protection and a bolt lock so they should never loosen. They're lanyard ready, but I use the loops to hang them on the pegboard. More great Milwaukee tools!

An Excellent Tool Set! I never had “left” and “right” cutting snips so didn't realize how much easier they made cutting curves. These snips from Milwaukee are Top-of-the-Line. I've used cheaper snips, and the difference is quality is noticeable as soon as you pick them up. The rubber-like ambidextrous grips are comfortable in either hand – though a bit difficult to grip in the fully open position for my hands. The lock is well placed for easy activation/deactivation with either thumb, and it's solid. The snips won't open accidentally. Cutting was easy on my test pieces (roof flashing and gutters) and cutting curves was suddenly a breeze. The pivot nut is recessed on the proper side to minimize interference with the cut-off piece as you cut, so it doesn't snag. The snips have color coded bands on the handles and a stamped mark on the blade for the type of cut: Red/L for Left cuts, Green/R for Right cuts, and Yellow/S for Straight cuts. That's consistent with other Milwaukee aviation snips to, so it's easy to pick the correct one from the tool box. The handles each have lanyard holes for convenience. The set is well priced and the quality is unmistakable.

Very sharp. Cuts well. The left/right snips are essential for cutting nice clean curves.
