These 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. These shears are made of ground, brushed tool steel.
• A coil spring is made of a simple coil of wire tempered to hold its hardness and spring back to its original shape after being compressed; the coil is attached to the inside surface between the tool handles.
• The curved handles and coil spring on these shears allow the full use of your hand while reducing hand fatigue.
• A simple loop catch holds these shears closed when not in use for safe storage and transport.
