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?
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
