    I keep the in my drill case. Both are Malco products that work great!

    I bought myself one of them shears like that, but never really used it. Most of the stuff I do now is so small it's more of a pain to dig that out than just cut it with snips (most of our stuff is 26 ga).

    Definately handy when cutting thicker stuff though!

    I think I seen a double cut version of that too recently.

    Those little snippys cut out the sides of furnaces like butter! screw carpal-tunnel syndrome, which I think I have a little bit.

    We used them on some 18ga duct on a RTU and was surprised on how well they worked.

    Been using both of those for years, and have the big hole cutter too.

    I find that I have to set the hole cutter a notch or 2 smaller than the size hole indicated on the scale, especially when cutting big holes.

    The sheers are great when you don't need a perfect edge on something, especially when it is thicker than 26 gauge metal.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
