These affordable, light-duty shears cleanly and easily cut sheet metal up to 26 gauge; they are ideal for cutting straight, precise lines or patterns in metal, and are also excellent for cutting sheet solder. Shears operate like scissors, with blades that smoothly bypass one another as they cut, but have a more robust construction ideal for cutting metal sheet. Straight-blade shears are perfect for cutting fine, straight lines.
• The single-leaf spring, consisting of a flat, tempered metal tab attached to the inside of one of the tool handles, positioned to meet the opposite handle, holds the tool open without effort, allowing you to position the blades as desired before squeezing them closed.
• The curved handles allow the full use of your hand while reducing hand fatigue; the plastic coating ensurea comfort and a secure grip.
• A simple loop catch holds these shears closed when not in use for safe storage and transport.
