    That’s a pretty good deal. Nice that they back the products they sell or this one at least.

    I have a pair of the Wiss offset left and right hand turn snips. They are the way to go – makes things much eaier.

    I being right handed I find I mostly turn left. Do you find you use both the red and green ones?

    When working with snips the “right” and “left” refer to which side the waste exits. So you end up using the snips that make the best cut for the job.

    I end up using lefts to make most of my cuts.

    I do use both, they are all I use actually. Having both on hand is nice when wrapping windows, especially when making the cuts for the sill piece.

    Well i thought If i were right handed I needed lefts but now with you using both I’ll have to get a set of rights.

    The right and left refer to where you want the waste to come off. The waste side has the edge turned down where the good side edge is flat and ready to use. The straights (yellow handle) are really only good for short cuts as they distort both sides of the cut.

    Love my Klein linesman pliers. They must be over ten years old and still work like I bought them yesterday.
