Are these snips OK?
Hi, I just bought a used Midwest snips.
Then last night tried cutting into the depicted tin coffee can (for hobo stove), but it was tough going for me. The seller had stated the snips were in good condition.
Would a snips that's in truly good condition be able to easily cut into a tin coffee can without such extreme jagged edges?
Please see my 2 pics below, so you can see the jagged results which it was impossible to fix with these snips. Do they need sharpening? These cost me $13-$14 with S&H. My local tool rental charges $6 for sharpening snips. Is it worth it? (I mean, maybe all snips cut like this anyway - and how often do these things need sharpening anyway?
P.S. FYI, note I recently bought a yellow+blue Shear Sharp scissor sharpener, that turned out to be no good. I grow weary of my endless accumulation of disappointing stuff.
