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

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 this cut metal-clad cable (the metal shield)?

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.

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.

Would these be good tools for cutting curves in 4mm Coroplast?

Answers

Since you don’t mention what material your cutting this is hard to answer. The ships have a rather short cut stroke that is probably good for curves. I was cutting thin metal flashing so would hesitate saying anything else not knowing your material.

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.

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!
