    Yeah, Sharpe's they write on the stuff soapstone won't write on. For regular steel or rusty stuff I use soapstone.

            I just noticed that the previous picture didn't have the gates in yet, so here is another shot I just took now.

              Doc, here is a picture of both, Tin Snips also called bulldogs, are at the top. The bottom has aviation snips, also called dutchman's. Notice they have blades that are opposite, for cutting curves in different directions. These work good for coping toprail.

                how about that I learned something today. my whole life i've called the two tools on the bottom tin snips and the one at the top I call Giant Scissors ... actually even home depot/lowe's/sears call them tin snips not aviation shears

                  After I started using aviation snips stayed away from regular snips. Now I use offset aviation snips to the max.

                  This shows offset snips. I don't have any slang terms.
