Aviation snips are a powerful hand tool perfect for cutting through tough materials such as cold rolled steel and stainless steel. The three most common types of tin snips available are straight cut, left cut and right cut. The direction does not refer to which hand they are best suited to, but to what side the waste material will be rolled up on. For example, straight cut snips allow you to cut through metal in a straight line to the length of the blade, whereas left cut allows you to cut straight or curved with the waste material to the left and right snips to the right.

Common applications include:

• Automotive repair
• HVAC repair
