The Milwaukee Offset Compound Tinner is built for tough cuts through metal lathe and other materials using its unique compound mechanism, which give the user up to 2X more power per cut, requiring less effort. The 45° offset blades keep users hands away from the cutting material for greater cut clearance. The Offset Compound Tinner is equipped with 40% larger handles than traditional tinner snips and features Bolt-Lock Technology, which means the blades, will not loosen from use. Milwaukee Tinner snip handles are a contoured, all-metal design so they are comfortable while wearing gloves and more durable than plastic coated tinner snips. All Milwaukee tinner snips are forged for durability and long blade life.
