Wiss Edge Aviation Snips
Designed for extreme durability and performance.

For decades, Wiss has been the professional’s go-to snip.
Now, the new Wiss Edge series, available in Straight, Left and Right-cut models, redefines performance with a total system design for increased durability, consistent control and exceptional comfort.

An improved compound action features the unparalleled Wiss pivot bolt system that performs six times longer than other snips. And a new ultra-durable spring lasts four times longer. The result…reliable performance, job after job after job.

The redesigned blade and handle combination positions material closer to the action for optimum leverage—reducing the force needed to cut by an average of twenty percent. Integrated stops ensure the blades open fully giving you the maximum cut length.
Combine the gripping power and force distribution of the legendary Wiss serrated blade, and you’ll make faster cuts with precision accuracy…every time.

Professionals know hand fatigue affects performance. Wiss Edge snips have an ergonomically advanced design to maximize comfort. Dual material grips and a longer palm handle conform naturally to the hand and provide added comfort and control. A new latch provides convenient locking and unlocking—even when wearing gloves.

Wiss Edge Aviation snips—The professional’s new standard in cutting.

Precision. Performance. Durability.


Checkpoint G3 Torpedo Level

  • 4-vial system reads 90°, 45°, 30° plus oversized 0°
  • Oversized view ports for easy reading from all sides
  • 8-1/2″ billet 6061 T6 aluminum alloy body
  • Exclusive V-Groove System allows Ultra Mag G3 to straddle any pipe up to 10″

    This is going to be a very simple review.

    Basically, you order a torpedo level, and you get a work of art with some insane magnets.

    At the end, I was a bit disappointed, not with the level, but with myself, for only having two hammers. I think it could have held a couple more hammers.

    Bosch DRESM6X2 Heavy Metal Reciprocating Blade

    As part of a demo project, we needed to quickly cut  rebar from a portion of the foundation we were demolishing, so we tried Bosch’s Daredevil Thick Metal blade.

    We can go on and on about how well it performs in thick metal and how it retained all its teeth after numerous cuts, but there is nothing else like seeing it for yourself.

    This blade is a keeper!
