Offset Aviation Tin Snips
OFFSET SNIPS
 
If I could have one metal cutting snip this would be the one.
 
It makes a Left & Straight cut: These snips have the handles offset upwards- keeping your hands above the metal making cutting easier, with less fatigue.
 
They are ideal for long straight & curved cuts especially on larger pieces.
 
They are best quality we know of for craft work. We have used this for our work for 28 years. Made in USA by Midwest Tool & Cutlery Co.
 
Heavier duty than our other snips. These snips cut 30,24 gauges of soft copper, brass and aluminum. Cutting thicker metal will take force ,strong hands& will not cut thicker plate metal.

 
 
The grips make cutting more comfortable. They have a spring to return back to the open position, making working with them easier. Comes with lifetime warranty against defects.
 
Offset Sheet Metal Snip: $36
Plus $3 shipping & handling SHIPS PRIORITY MAIL
Caution: beware of the sharp blades. These are not for use by children. Do not cut wire with these snips as it ruins the smooth cut & voids warranty.See our information on Cutting Metal Sheet and Wire
 
 
Sheet Metal Shears for
Thin Metal & Foils:
 
These shears are great for detailed work in cutting thin sheet metal - tooling metal & foil.
 
Ideal for 30, 36 , 37, 38 or thinner foil gauges of copper, brass and aluminum.
 
This will not cut thicker metal- such as 23 or 24 gauge, cutting thicker than 30 gauge may break the shears. For cutting thicker metal see our METAL Tin/ Aviation SNIPS for Sheet metal. These are not for cutting wire and will damage the blade or break the sheers. see Pliers & Wire Cutters
 
The hardened steel blades have a 3 inch depth of cut. Overall 8 1/2 inches long. Quality made for fine craft work.
 
 
 
Sheet Meal Shears:$7 plus $2 shipping SHIPS First Class mail
Caution: blades are sharp. These are not for use by children. made in China

Thin 36 Gauge Foil foil for embossing and tooling.MORE ABOUT THICKNESS

General RAW METAL INFORMATION
 
Bulk Metal :   Our cut to length bulk hobby & craft metals provides sizes needed at a good value. Our cuts of art metal are generously long & approximately square. Metal by the running foot or yard is shipped in one length whenever possible. We use this metal to craft our own creations. We are unable to provide sizes other than what is shown on our web site. More on More on custom cut sizes
 
Most sheet metal is shipped in a roll if more than one foot wide or long. (except our 18 gauge plate metal which is too thick to roll and ships flat ) If necessary ripples or curves can be flattened by rolling it with a smooth rolling pin or plastic pipe section on a completely smooth surface such as a countertop, smooth wood or heavy glass table. It also can be rolled slightly the other way to flatten.
 
Grades:  These solid metals are of an especially pure high grade for fine craft work. All of It is solderable except aluminum..
               
Our New Craft Metal on this page has a bright rolled satin finish. It may have some very slight surface variations from manufacturing: ripples, scratches & color variations which add a rich character to creations made from this natural element.  All metal is new unless on our Recycled/ Reclaimed Metal page.       
 
              
Reclaimed -Recycled metal: This unused older metal has scratches, finger prints, ripples and/or dents. Some is shiny and and some has patina from age. It is all very usable at a good price. We use this metal in our own creations. For these metals see our page: Recycled/ Reclaimed Metal
 
Gauges or Thickness: The lower the gauge number the thicker the metal. For example 23 gauge sheet metal is more than twice as thick as 30 gauge. See below for gauge charts.*Gauge Lines above show approximate gauge thickness for wire for comparison and may not appear correctly on all screens. Gauges listed are AWG or average wire gauge thickness and are approximate to gauge size stated (within a few hundredths of an inch)
 
Hardness: Basically how easy it is to bend or work: Most of our metal is annealed soft except where noted.
             Soft is pliable yet holds up for folding and hammering. Thicker metal bends less easily than thin.
             Medium Hard is stiff, bends less easily and holds is shape better in larger pieces.
 
 
FINISH: Our raw/bare metals can be buffed up after a piece is completed.  More information on METAL
CRAFT HOW-TO : Cleaning, cutting, forming, soldering & finishing
 
PATINA: All the metals we offer are raw with no wax or varnish and will gain an aged patina over time. Patina solutions (available at most hardware stores) can be used to speed the aging process. More about Patina
 
CAUTION :HANDLE WITH CARE , Raw metals have sharp edges. Rolls and coils are tightly wound and may spring open. It is best to wear gloves when handling raw metal. The craft metals and hand crafted metal creations are not made for use by children.
 
Our metals are sold only for craft work; and they are not tested nor certified safe for electrical nor electronic uses, nor home construction , and they are not certified for food service, nor internal consumption. (Yes folks some actually ask if they can eat this craft metal!)
