      • Great snips to last a lifetime, I intend to get the whole set

      I own a lot of Milwaukee tools, and these certainly fall on the cheaper side of their hand tool line. Considering their size, I wondered why that was. Now that I've tried them, I'm still wondering, because they are well-built, serve their purpose, and some others, masterfully, and appear to be the kind of tool that will last for years. I have fairly mall hands for a man, and these are rather large, which initially looked like it might be a bit of a problem for me, but I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable they were to use. I wear a size Medium in gloves, if you wear a glove size Small I'd recommend trying these out in the store before purchasing as you might find them a little too large for your taste. Called 'aviation snips', I don't have any airplanes to try these on, but they cut through heavy gauge wire, sheet metal and some small nails like they were soft butter. Having kept them on my kitchen counter for a few weeks, I found myself cutting all kinds of stuff with these with great ease. These have a spring hing that makes using them very easy & efficient, and thankfully solid latch too. The latch to keep them closed is perfectly located to flick open or closed with your thumb. Unlike some of the other Milwaukee tools I've used that had a plastic sliding closure that was prone to become loose & useless, this is a pretty sturdy metal latch that looks like it won't have any trouble standing up to use. While billed as right cutting, I found a could cut to the left without great difficult, though they do feel better and more accurate cutting to the right. For the price, I intend to get the left cutting ones as well. One thing I did notice when opening them was some slight oily residue on the blades. This isn't really a problem, but you might want to take a look for this before setting your new tool on anything you wouldn't want to get a little oil on. If you're thinking of buying these and the similar left cutting & straight cutting snips, you might consider the combo pack that includes all three to save a little money.
