    I have used these for years, now they have a wire cutter. I have 2 are that are 15+ years old. The most important thing I have found with snips is not to let anyone else use yours.

    Midwest. Got a brand new set of kleins, that I hated. Any snips that i have to tighten the fricken nut up every time I use them are not doing me any good. Got some old klenks that come in handy too.

    I ended up going with Wiss. It's cutting nicely but we're still in the honeymoon stage of our relationship. We'll see what happens when marriage sinks in. LOL

    after 15 years of new construction duct and furnace installs,i tried every make of snips i could get my hands on.since everything was piece work,proper snips are very important for speed.i found that wiss are the best.use them for a few months then chuck them for a new pair.wish i would have saved them all up just to see how many i wore out over the years.
    if it wont go,get a bigger hammer.

    go to the link in above post and you have an email and phone number. They will let you know who is selling it in your State. I guesstimate the price to be $350-450

    Although it is a good looking shear capable of getting in tight spaces and cutting 16 ga metal I do not think I will be putting out the $570 they are asking.
