Shop here at Bridge Tools for Tin Snips, perfect for metalwork and fabrication. An essential tool for any tool box, Tin Snips really come into their own for those special tasks in the workshop, garage, or around the home.
Tin Snips, or Tinsnips as they are sometimes referred, are the principal tool for cutting thin metal sheeting. There are actually three types of Tin Snips available, and owning all three will allow you to fabricate metal to your exact requirements. You'll find 'lefts', 'rights' and 'straights' and using these will give you full control over the shapes that you create. The biggest difference you'll find with right and left Tin Snips is the side on which you can expect the waste to be ejected. The benefit of both of these styles is that the edge of the metal that you're shaping is fed through the tool for continuous snipping, a feature which isn't present on straight Tin Snips.
Straight Tin Snips are predominantly used for notching, comfortably cutting into metal sheeting by about an inch in most cases. Another area straight Tin Snips can come into their own is dealing with wire entanglements.
Here at Bridge Tools you can find a number of pairs of Tin Snips for varying budgets available. Many of the products here feature essential aspects that'll make your life easier such as compound leverage, safety catches and soft grips. We sell individual pairs and sets to get you up and running, made by respected manufacturers such as Toolzone. Please feel to browse the products available and we hope you find a tool that's suitable to your needs.
