You can email to anyone? I might have the email in the forum turned off, no
t sure. If it is its because of security issues and spam. Email them to me and tonight ill add them here.

There is a post ill find later about how to upload images.

i can email but cannot find an email address
i am sorry if i am causing more work for anyone
i thought this would be relevant for some members to see these great old tools
they are no longer made....like the scroll pivitor and high quality Niagara curved tin snips, old wiss #8, #9, #18, in both straight and combination cut etc, etc
these are from the 1930's

This is rickey and I am going to try and help out a new friend Steve.Steve has sent me some great pictures that I hope I can get posted here on the forum for all you serious Metal heads can appreciate. Steve has been in Roofing and Architectural Sheet metal most of his life. When I looked at these pictures it set me in state of dreaming, dreaming of what I had searched for years. A set of the Wiss Scroll Pivoter, not only 4 or 5 pairs but also a great
collection of long gone but not forgotten Wiss table snips. I need to start a new thread on this great new friend and a good and resourceful person known to me as Steve from North dakota. I will stop here for now and renew my search on how to start this new Thread. Thanks for taking the time to read a few words.

I wouldn't thought an old pair of snips would be any good at all! Probably work better than a new set though, I guess you'll demonstrate, looking forward to it. lol
