The ZipSnip is a new 3.6V Li-ion cutter designed for making precise and effortless cuts through a variety of materials around the home, workshop, garden, and even in industrial settings. You can use it on cloth, leather, plastic packaging, corrugated board, rubber liner, and the list goes on and on.
ZipSnip is relatively lightweight at about 1 lb, and features a impact-resistant composite construction with a comfortable soft-grip handle. A top-mounted safety switch is toggled with the trigger switch for added safety. The replaceable hardened and self-sharpening steel blade is 1-1/2″ in diamater, and a built-in guide can be used for straight or curved cuts.
The blade operates at 260 rpm (no-load), and can handle a maximum thickness of 1/4 inch, depending on the material.
These tools are available at Menards, regional hardware and home centers, and online for ~$40.
Is it me, or does the new ZipSnip closely resemble Skil’s lithium-ion Power Cutter with a revamped handle?!
