Will these cut through vinyl lattice?

Asked by NCmountaingirl June 24, 2020
1
Answer

You didn't post a picture of the lattice you want to cut through so the best answer is, if you hands are strong enough. If it is the thinner lattice that you slide into a post, then most likely. If it is a free standing lattice design, it could be very thick and you would be better off with a saw.

can i cut thin tile with this? i saw a video of a man cutting a circle on a tile with a scisor similar to this one. T

Asked by Emma June 9, 2020

Answers

No. I don't think so. First of all these scissors are designed to cut thin metal. These do open big enough to grab anything over 1/4". Also tiles edges might chip off.

Can these be used to cut 1/8" x 1" aluminum Moulding?

Asked by BlackCherokee May 20, 2020
1
Answer

Hey BlackCherokee, 1/8" aluminum would be roughly 11 gauge. These are meant for 22 gauge and thinner. For metal that thick you need something with more than manual power, a saw would be better suited. Thanks!

It can cut coax cable, but I have not tried to use it on metal clad cable. It can cut through sheet metal, if that helps.

Straight will work fine. But if you’re concerned about it being perfect I’d recommend using a dremel or multi-tool or even a hack saw. Also, if it’s something like ducting that you’re cutting then that stuff is easy to manipulate back in shape even if you mess it up.

Answers

The longer the handle, the better leverage you will have. Size difference is mostly from the manufacturer and a cost driven choice.

the spring under warranty?

Asked by Frankie November 12, 2019

Answers

I called Wiss seeking replacement under their “Lifetime Limited Warranty”... Be prepared to hear that your issue falls into the “normal wear and tear” category and as such; you have no claim... That’d be your “Limited” warranty. Never got a satisfactory explanation on how the “Lifetime” part figures in. But you can count on that “Limited” language to render any “Lifetime” component irrelevant every time!

It most likely can. You would be better off with a small die grinder. It will give you smoother edges and less cleanup.

cutting blade snapped after the second cut
I have an old pair of WISS snips that I’ve had for years and they worked great, they were getting a little doll so I decided to buy a new pair unfortunately the new ones are garbage. I was cutting some 20 gauge galvanized sheet metal and after making two cuts the cutting blade snapped broke right off.

I own all the major utility knives and this is my favorite. The build is great, it has in-handle blade storage, has a good heft, and operates smoothly when changing blades and opening. But, on mine the paint is scraping off as shown in the picture. I've seen other reviews that say the same thing. Maybe it was a bad batch. I still really like this knife.

Unfortunately, it did not do the job I bought it to do. But, it was useful on another project and easy to use. Good for rewiring, but not for thicker wire that I wanted to cut.

I purchased this product to cut a kitchen backsplash I purchased that was made of super thin stone. The snips worked great. They cut the stone easily, with precision and with a clean cut on the edges of the stone. Very impressed!
