Weighing only 4 pounds, the KD-200 double-cut shears bring performance to the jobsite. They will cut 18-gauge mild steel in straight or contour lines at over 300 inches per minute and 20-gauge stainless steel at over 180 inches per minute. The swiping action of the blades, the company says, seals the edge of coated metals, and the 7/32-inch waste strip leaves clean cuts. Cost: $225. Kett Tool Co. 513-271-0333. www.kett-tool.com.
