Milwaukee Extends Hand Tool Line with Metalworking Solutions


MILWAUKEE, WI- Milwaukee Tool continues to rapidly expand its Hand Tool offering with the introduction of several new metalworking


tools. Delivering unmatched durability and performance, the new offering will consist of six new Tinner Snip models that include the industry’s first Compound-Offset tinner snip, a 3” SPEED SEAMER™ and a 5-Blade HVAC Crimper for HVAC ductwork.


“These new products round out our best in class metal cutting snips lineup and provide a complete metalworking solution for the user,” says Bobby Shaw, Director of Marketing for Milwaukee Tool.


The six new Tinner Snips are divided into three types:  the industry’s first Compound-Offset Tinner, Classic Tinners and Lightweight Tinners.  Each with a unique set of features and benefits, the new line aims to increase productivity with features such as 40% larger

handle loops that are much easier to use with commonly worn gloves.


The Compound-Offset Tinner Snips are ideal for tough cuts and deliver 2X more force than the competition. Using a compound mechanism that amplifies the tool’s force, the user is able to achieve easier cuts in tough metal materials – such as metal lathe – with less effort. In addition, the tool features 45-degree all-metal forged offset blades to keep the user’s hands above the material while cutting, and BOLT-LOCK™ Technology so the blades will not loosen over time.


The Classic Tinner Snips will be available in 10”, 12” and 16” for straight cuts, and a Duckbill model for tight radius cuts. Like the Compound-Offset tool, each of the Classic models will also feature BOLT-LOCK™ technology and all metal forged blades with up to 40% larger handle loops for easy use with gloves.


The Lightweight Tinner Snip is an aluminum bodied snip with replaceable blades. Milwaukee’s solution features a best-in-class cut length

of 3-1/2” and is ideal for long cuts in sheet metal or ductwork.


New metal forming solutions will include the 3” SPEED SEAMER™ and 5-Blade HVAC Crimper. Featuring a forged metal head and comfortable over-molded handles, the 3” SPEED SEAMER™ includes 3/8” and 1” markings on the head to quickly measure the most common folds in HVAC ductwork.  The 5-Blade HVAC Crimper features reinforced crimper ribs, which provide greater blade stability, producing up to 2X longer tool life. The 3” SPEED SEAMER™ and 5-Blade HVAC Crimper are designed to be comfortable for both overhand and underhand use.


Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, the new products confirm Milwaukee’s commitment to best-in-class durability and their relentless

commitment to provide innovative, productivity enhancing solutions to core end users.
