It is wonderful for going over ribbed steel. Makes for a professional finish. A great tool and worth every penny. This is an essential tool for everyone. This is another one of Ingersoll-Rand's top tools.

The Astro Pneumatic Tool Company 727 Nibbler B01JBO3G2O was really our favorite Air Shears & Nibblers. Nevertheless, there were a few other truly premium quality Air Shears & Nibblers we wanted to show you here that just barely missed the mark.

Ingersoll-Rand is an additional major producer of Shears & Nibblers. They build the tool next on our lineup. Ingersoll-Rand's Nibblers are one of their premier tools. I was eager to try the model EC300 and I was not disappointed!

The model EC300 Nibbler by Ingersoll-Rand, at $99.44 is a particularly excellent Shears & Nibbler for the money. If you uncertain about our number one choice, I'd consider the Ingersoll-Rand EC300 next. It's a high quality tool at a good price.

Both tools are highly rated also. Genuine customers gave the Ridgerock Tools Inc. an average rating of 4.3/5 stars. You can liken that to the AN-16 that holds an average score of 3.9/5 stars.

Best of all, it didn't nibble at my budget. Much better than my Milwakee Nibbler. Can handle relatively heavy sheet steels. Wish I would have bought these years ago. I was surprised how well it worked.

Metal is left smooth instead of rough. By far the easiest metal tool to cut curves. I use the heck out of this thing. Cutting the sheets was almost fun. Cutting the sheets was almost fun.
