2 Tin Snips/Cutters, Stanley Cutter, Drop Forged USA, Vintage, Old Tools, Rusty Tools, Tin Snips, Collectible, Tool Collection, Usable Tools
This is a pair of Vintage Tin Snips or Cutters......one is marked Stanley 14-546 and I do not see any markings on the other. My guess is they were produced in the 1960's.....could be earlier, could be later, just not sure.
The Stanley snips measure 7 1/4" long and the snips with the blue handles measure 6 3/4" long. Both snips measure right at 3" across their handles at the widest part. Both are hinged together with an adjustable nut and bolt.......they are in good condition with small amounts of surface rust. I haven't done any cleaning to the snips other than a good surface wipe. Both can be opened and I believe would be capable of free movement with a little cleaning and WD40.
I don't know about the blue handled cutters, but the Stanley brand is marked Drop Forged in USA. The process of drop forging strengthens the steel......the result being a pair of good quality cutters. The blue handled cutters appear to be equally sturdy to me although there is no indication of their maker or the process of production.
These two tin snips/cutters would be a great addition to your vintage tool collection......or possibly be the start of one. They are a good size and fit nicely in your hand, making for a comfortable grip.
