By far the easiest metal tool to cut curves. I like how solid the Nibbler is. Works really well on old tin roofing. I use the heck out of this thing. I used on a 20Ga sheet metal.

The truth is that the Makita JN1601 Nibbler B000TKRLS0 was the Handheld Shears & Nibblers that we rated most highly. That doesn't mean there aren't several other really great alternatives when it comes to Handheld Shears & Nibblers. We have them for you here.

Next on our list is manufactured by Makita known to be a very trusted tool supplier. Makita's Nibblers are great as well. I was excited to have a go at the model JN3201 and I was not let down!

Aside from the selections we covered already, I would evaluate the Chicago Pneumatic CP835 and the 6330 by AIRCAT 6330. Both these tool manufactures are considered two of the leading producers of high quality Shears & Nibblers. both of these two tools enjoy fantastic customer reviews as well. The CP835 received a user rating of 4.0/5 when compared to 4.8/5 star rating for the 6330 by AIRCAT 6330.

The CP835 by Chicago Pneumatic comes with several features you wont find on competing Nibblers. One example is Heavy-Duty Nibbler Tool: air nibbler is ergonomically designed for precise cutting of steel and aluminum metal. Pneumatic nibbler is a perfect tool for accurate cutting with superior performance in tight corners and circles. The 6330 by AIRCAT 6330 by comparison, is very competitive with Stall resistant .5 HP Motor and even Ergonomic TVP Molded Handle Grip.

I would be eager to recommend both of these Handheld Shears & Nibblers

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.

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.

I used on a 20Ga sheet metal. The harder you push, the smoother the cut! WORKS JUST LIKE IT'S SUPPOSED TO. Very good tool, works great. Cuts clean and makes nice turns.
