Midwest Special Hard Snips Offset

Midwest Special Hard Snips Offset

These "Offset Special Hard" models are great for making longer cuts in sheet metal allowing the material to pass easily around the blades and under the handle - similar to how a throatless shear works. This offset also allows for a much tighter cutting radius when cutting curves. These models are specially treated for cutting hardened sheet metals such as stainless steel, inconel, and titanium. - More Info -
