Snips..


Recently got a new pair of snips made by Milwaukee,seemed ok at first but then I noticed they weren't cutting all the way to the blade tips,a little file action worked


I like the Malco M12 better,the Milwaukee's are 1/2'' longer but the Malco cut better even tho the replaceable blades look very similar

You'd think they would have tried out their new design by cutting a piece of metal or two before going to full production and shipping...

Re: Snips..


the replaceable blades look just like Malco's design,looking at them I would bet there's a relationship there

Re: Snips..

He can just glue an eraser in, and shave it down until it's just right.

Probably JBWeld would be the pro way to do it...

Re: Snips..


I use the Malco12 and when they are sharp they work well but sometime I miss the old duck billed snips.

Re: Snips..


I do own several Malco products and like them but the prices are a bit extreme IMO.

I like the Klenk aviation snips. I can use them for anything from vinyl to 24ga sheetmetal and they work great.
