How to Use a Sheet Metal Nibbler : How to Make an Inside Cut with Sheet Metal Nibbler


Hi, on behalf of Exert Village I’m Terry and
today I’m going to show you how to use a set of metal nibblers in metal working. Next we’re
going to make an inside cut but first I need to make a hole in my material in order for
the cutting head to be inserted.
Ok I just punched a hole with a drill press, you can use a hand held drill but I just did
it because I’m lazy and it’s quicker. Right now I’m going to pound down the burs and draw
a little hole here so that I have something to follow. You want to lay it on the edge
of the table so you can move you can work your material around so you don’t have to
sit there and twist completely around your hand. With any power tool if you’re making
a change in position as I did, you’ll always want to stop it, regather yourself and then
start again because you don’t want to hold down the trigger and keep that mechanism moving
while your regripping your tool. You could loose grip and that could either break something
or injure yourself.
