Snips?


Just curious what snips you guys are using. I'm doing a bullnose house this week and need a new pair. I have always used Wiss, but their quality has not been there for a few years now. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: Snips?


I always used Wiss as well and noticed the poor quality right when I retired. You might try these.

Re: Snips?


I see what your saying I don't stack and cut your right it kills them instantly . I'll make a mark on 4 pieces of 90 then cut 2 at a time tops usually just use the chop saw for stack cuts but you can't do that with bead. But like I was saying everything is made cheaper wiss are just the best I can get . My first screw gun wad a dewalt corded it lasted like 3 years. Bought 2 our hilti chager died so I needed guns to get buy with both guns died before 6 months only being used as back up guns .

Re: Snips?


These are great, Really great, Went through many snips, found these been going good for several years now but i clean any mud off, Put back in packet, Look after them and they still nip fine right to the tip.

Yeah Mudslinger, I agree. I really like those Milwaukee snips!
Although, I don't do use any metal beads,
just paper-faced plastic.
