Klein Tools Offers New Aviation Snips For Cutting and Notching Sheet Metal
CHICAGO, IL - July 2004 - Klein Tools is introducing new aviation snips in offset and notching cutting patterns, for comfortable and reliable sheet metal cutting and trimming.
The new Klein offset snips are available in right, left, and straight cutting patterns (Cat. Nos. 2101R, 2100L and 2102S). Snips with a notch cutting pattern (Cat. No. 2103) are also new. The new offset snips have the capacity for cutting 18 gauge cold-rolled sheet metal, and 22 gauge stainless sheet metal, making them perfect for the aviation and the HVAC industries. The notch (or bulldog) snips notch or trim 16 gauge cold-rolled sheet metal and 18 gauge stainless steel sheet metal.
Each style of snip is constructed with comfortable, contoured plastic handles that are color-coded by cutting pattern. The snips are spring loaded for easy self opening, and come with a latch to keep the jaws closed when not in use.
The offset blades keep the user's hand away from the metal, and provide ease when cutting tight curves.
Forged and heat treated, the steel blades offer strength and durability when cutting or notching sheet metal. The overall length of the offset snips is 9-1/2" (241 mm), while the notch snips measure 9-1/4" (235 mm).
