These shears are a versatile bench tool, ideal for cutting straight lines or wide curves on soft metal up to .032" (20-gauge) thick. Large, comfortable handles help ensure a firm, comfortable grip with reduced hand fatigue as you work. 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.
• Not for use with memory wire or Beadalon® or for cutting sprues; take care to avoid using these cutters beyond their maximum capacity.
