What is a nibbler?
Get me roger rabbit! In the sheet-metal workshop, this was the name that we have given our nibbler. Looking at it more closely, one quickly realises that it's aptly named.
Used mainly on sheet metal but also on thin plastic or wood, this lightweight and handy powered or lightweight power tool can be used to make cutting metal, cladding or any other thin material easy.
