" Bought these to cut steel roofing sheets. Only used the straight cutting snips. (cheaper to buy set than one pair!)
They cut though 0.7mm steel like scissors on paper. Perfectly staight line and a very clean cut.

Great value & do the job well

" I bought the Aviation Tin Snips to cut wire mesh, these did the trick. I had been trying to cut the mesh with scissors and it was a struggle so decided to buy these because they were the cheapest I could find. I only used the straight set and they cut the stuff beautifully. The longer handles saved getting cut with the sharp wire edges. I would definitely recommend as I will only be using them now and then. Thank you Screwfix for an easy online transaction. They were waiting to be collected when I got there. "

" These snips are great value. Give a nice clean cut on thin sheet. And with options for left, right or straight you can get a nice finish as well. "

" WEll for a lower end of the market snips, i would recommend them for occasional usage.
This is a handy set to have in your tool box, should the need arise for such a tool.

" For the price these are hard to beat, specially they are only needed for the occasional job. Check other diy stores and they are 3 x the price "

Shoddy tinsnips
7 Mar 2015
By froisaf
, Cardiff
" Stranded and need a tin-snips, bought these to finish a small job and got what I paid for. Probably ok for lead, aluminium or very thin steel, but useless for very thin stainless steel. And I mean very thin. The jaws are so soft the dulled on the first cut, and I only wanted a 150mm straight line. "

Cheap and Cheerful
17 Nov 2014
By SuttonMan
, Sutton, Surrey
" Got the job they were bought for done - good job they came in a set of 3, as they blunted quickly, so I needed all of them!.
Started 'folding' the material rather than cutting, after a short time. Would not recommend as a permanent addition to the toolbox - but were cheap enough for my 'one off'. "

You get what you pay for

By YoloSwaggins

" If you really need the cheapest of cheap get these and they will do the job, however it will not be a pleasant experience.
The catch closes during use and the handles are very uncomfortable to use.
I cant really comment on the cutting quality as I am not an expert and have nothing to compare to yet.
