Small hand-held pruning shears ("loppers"?). Two halves held together
with a spring and a rivet. Inexpensive, but it served well for
Rivet has loosened up, unit tends to bind up instead of cutting.
Wondering about possible repair.
I think I layed the shears flat and hammered the face of rivet last
season to tighten it up. Didn't last long.
Pop the rivet out and try, say, a bolt and locking nut?
Other ideas? I hate to throw tools away ...
