Wood Trim Shears: are they as handy as they might seem?

Looking for recommendations on the usefulness of hand trim shears. I can't find any info on them. A flooring installer showed them to my Pop and now he wants one for cutting his quarter-round. I believe the manufacturer was QEP but I'd think there would be more. It had a small fence and stop on it that could be set at different mitre angles. He cut some pieces to show my dad how well they worked. Seems like a great idea but is it? And where can they be purchased? TIA Matt

I am not sure what you are talking about. But it sounds a lot like the cutters used for making picture frames. You might want to take a look at them.

i think thats what the orginal poster wants BUT the best ones are branded LOWE. made in germany and have very good steel that holds an edge well. i use these daily for runnng shoe molding. i run between 400 and 800 feet a day. THEY ARE WORTH EVERY PENNY. cuts the time by 2/3. and you dont need a saw and cord set up. however they dont do so well with hardwood. like lightning on pine and poplar.

i have a set from woodcraft also. save your money. I saved a few bucks buying them but they were nearly useless. they would not stay sharp. I gave em to the ol lady to trim shrubs with. :-] the only brand i have been happy with [ and i have tried several brands ] were the LOWE brand i mentioned earlier. they cost nearly twice as much but last several times longer between sharpenings. JMHO. try here. they are on clearance!
