Left-Cutting Vertical Aviation Snip
The forged steel jaws of these left-cutting or right -cutting snips are set at a 90-degree angle to allow easy gripping when cutting sheet metal in tight spaces or overhead. The operator can follow tight circular or square pattern left or right cuts with either a pushing or pulling motion. A serrated edge on the upper jaw and compound head-to-handle linkage provide powerful, non-slip leverage for cutting up to 24-gauge (0.61 mm) cold rolled steel or 28-gauge (0.38 mm) stainless. Handles feature non-slip, cushion inserts, torsion-spring action and a squeeze-open, side operated latch. Rust-resistant polished forged steel jaws and black oxide finished handle stampings promote long service life.
