- Manual sheet metal snips may only be used to cut thin sheets of soft metals or steel. They are not suitable for cutting through round or rectangular section metal shapes such as wires.
- Cutting tools may only be used manually without using any auxiliary tools.
- Always wear safety goggles and gloves when working. Cut parts can injure workers and bystanders.
- Improper use can cause personal injuries or material damage.
- Disconnect the connection to the power supply when carrying out work on electrical equipment. Otherwise, you may get an electric shock.
- Always cut away from the head when using snips and knives.
- Always store cutting tools with the cutting edges closed and in a location where they are clearly visible. The handle must be pointing towards you.
- Store cutting tools separately. This saves the cutting edges and your fingers.
- Sharpen cutting tools regularly. Blunt tools increase the risk of injury and require more force for the same cutting performance.
- Shears head made of forged steel, burnished
- Shears handles made of 2-component plastic with sheet metal part
- Connecting elements made of steel, galvanised or burnished
- Clean the rails with solvent
- Rub the cutting edge with a lightly oiled cloth (remove material dust) in regular cycles, depending on the degree of soiling
- Regularly oil the screw connections on the inside of the blade
- Rusty or scratched cutting edge, gently scrape it off with an oil stone
- If the snips exhibit too much play, adjust the screw. (It must still be possible to open and close the shears easily)
