Here's a video of a hole I cut for a fan shroud.

Before I watched Bill's tin snip video my fingers would have been shredded from all the burrs. So yes, I fit in that same category, saw what I have been doing wrong for so long.

I used them for several years putting up acoustical ceiling and picked up many a pair for free.........it took the rookies a while to figure out you need have to keep the cutting jaws clean to keep them running smoothy.
......well, I'd usually be a good guy and show them and give them their snips back!!!

.....I have one of each in my tool box. All swiss!

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

I go thru a lot of Dremel metal cut off wheels, and have also burned thru three Dremels but I like the small wheel, and control I get. I may have to look into the nibbler.
