Nibblers and shears are two of the most common power tools available for cutting sheet metal, providing a faster and less fatiguing alternative to hand tools. However, many inexperienced users are often confused as to the difference between them and the advantages they confer (incidentally both terms – nibblers and shears – can refer to types of hand tools as well, which adds to the confusion slightly).
What is Nibbler?
An easy way to remember how a nibbler works are to imagine it as a sort of motorized metal chewing rodent. It literally nibbles its way through the sheet metal at high speed, spraying out small semicircular chips as it is guided through the workpiece. It does this using a punch & dies assembly at the business end of the tool, which eventually becomes worn and needs replacing.
