If there are three pair, you might have one for cutting curves to the right, one to the left, and one for cutting straight on.

Yes, that's exactly what was in the package. I discarded the ones that cut to the left, they seemed uncomfortable with me. The ones that cut to the center and to the right seem to be fine with me though. (No offense to those who cut to the left, I have some very good friends who are lefties, sort of).

LOL sounds like it's one of those, "Not that there's anything wrong with that." statements.
I especially appreciated the 'sort of' I know what you mean.

YIPES! So what happens when you need to make a left-curving cut? I know about those because I spent a month or so doing aluminum siding one summer in my youth. To do a complete job you do need all three. Ah, well ...

Yeah. I guess it does take all kinds to make a, um...a complete world of cutting tools.

...if it's small enough to turn over! I hope you wouldn't be working on something that large with tin snips!

iffen it ain't small enough to turn over you need to hire out to the caterpillar crew, and use a much bigger cutter than one you got three fer $9.95!

What a great idea. My birthday is just on the horizon and maybe if I sweet talk my better half sufficiently I'll get a surprise birthday present in the driveway. What a great toy a full sized caterpillar would make! I could cut a wide swath with one of those.

But no, it's really just an M-T dream. My wife has been up the hill and over the ridge and I don't think I'm going to be able to pull it off. But it would bring back lots of memories from my youth when I once could cut a wide swath. (I'm not saying I DID cut a wide swath, just saying I COULD).

I had some sheet metal to cut today, no wide swaths, just getting to the other side, my snips cost a great deal more, for one than $9.95. I barely made it through it. Good luck with your right cuts and left cuts,

Is that why you rarely change your sheets?

Speaking of tools. How about the leaf blower. All they seem to be good for is blowing the leafs off your driveway/sidewalk after you have mowed the lawn to right back where they started from...the lawn. Not to mention they contribute to getting that buggery little speck of God-knows-what lodged under your contact lens. It's a never ending, vicious cycle.
