1/8" sheet lead snips?

Looking for some sheet metal snips that can cut up to 1/8" sheet lead. What would be some recommendations from either Lowes/ Home Depot?

Thanks, Chase

Anything from a dull butter knife on up should work, Chase. Snips would most likely deform both edges too much as they were cutting.

I'd probably use my newer linoleum knife on that. It has a sharp point for close work and a thin blade for easy slicing. I'd cut on plywood or drywall scraps.

Generally you want flat knife type snips. The aircraft ones will do it but will mark lines along the griping points.

I bet a duck bill sheet metal snip is the best shot. Otherwise a sharp razer knife and a clamp straight edge. Mart> On Sat, 7 Feb 2009 09:15:52 -0500, the infamous "Chase List"
