Sheetmetal Cutters / Tin Snips.
Easy-to-make sheet-metal cutters. These will cut in the center of a sheet with a .19 inch diameter starting hole and cut on either the upper or lower side of the sheet, whichever is more convenient.
It works best on straight cuts but will cut a large radius.
As the blades cut, they curl a strip of metal ahead of the cutter. There is practically no distortion of the metal from the cutting action.
The cutter will handle up to .06 inch aluminum or .02 inch soft- steel sheet.
The blades are made of oil-hardened tool steel, sold at machine shop supply places in strips two feet long. One strip is enough for one cutter.
