Lenox has introduced a line of snips and HVAC tools specially designed for installation and metal fabrication. The company claims that the new line offers longer blade and spring life and more comfortable grips. The aviation snips feature precision-formed blades ground to a point for long, even cuts. The offset snips are designed with bi-material blades: Type No. 1074 high-carbon steel upper blades for sharpness and forged lower blades for strength. Lenox snips are available in six sizes: right, left- and straight-cutting aviation; right and left offset; and Bulldog snip to cut up to 16-gauge cold rolled steel.
